Holiday Packages to Luxor Holiday Packages to Hurghada

Travel to Luxor and you will know why it is one of Egypt’s great tourist attractions. It is also commonly known as the world’s largest open air museum. Luxor is built on and around the ancient site of Thebes. Tourists have been visiting the area since the Greco-Roman times, so you won’t be the first! There are so many splendid temples and monuments although Luxor is actually three separate areas each with their own highlights.

Hurghada Hotel Reviews

Hurghada offers a wide range of accommodations, ranging
from luxury five-star resorts and villages on the beach to the more-modest two and three-star hotels in and around town. Unlike Alexandria, where the summer is the high season, the winter months (October through April) are the busiest in Hurghada, and hotel availability and rates will change quickly depending upon the flow of visitors.

   Holiday Packages to Taba Holiday Packages to Marsa AlamThe new fast growing unspoilt upmarket Red Sea resort of Taba, in the area known as the Egyptian Rivierva, is the ideal place for rest and relaxation. Set against the picturesque Sinai mountain range Taba boasts the most spectacular views. Taba offers year round sunshine and an array of first class hotels. Taba is ideally placed to explore the fascinating historical sites of the area. With the opening of the International Airport in 2001, which has direct flights from many parts of Europe, Taba is fast becoming a favourite holiday destination. Taba offers fantastic dive conditions so it really is the ideal resort in which to learn to dive – warm waters and a calm current and shallow reefs accessible straight from the beach. Taba hotels offer an abundance of other activities, such as golf, water-sports, camel rides, quad bike rides and boat-trips. A visit to the Sinai Desert is a must while holidaying in Taba, as is a traditional Bedouin dinner under the stars.

Marsa Alam is one of the more recently discovered Red Sea resorts. Marsa Alam, previously a quaint fishing village, is set to become one of Egypt’s fastest growing holiday resorts. Marsa Alam is a tropical delight with miles of untouched sandy beaches and inviting crystal clear blue waters perfect to discover the unspoilt coral reefs and awesome marine wildlife. Marsa Alam is an up and coming favourite with diving enthusiasts, with dive sites such as the Elphinstone Reef famous for its Hammerheads. However, whether you’re a diver, historian, windsurfer or sun worshipper there’s something to suit everyone at Marsa Alam.





Luxor Restaurants Reviews

Our recommendation:  The Jewel of the Nile

More Luxor Restaurants

As regular visitors to Egypt we bring you the latest reviews on the Luxor restaurants. During our most recent visit, returning only a couple of days ago, we sampled the delights of many excellent restaurants (and one or two not so good but I will come to those later). The standard and service of one, however, stood out way above the rest, Jewel of the Nile.  In our opinion the creme de la creme of Luxor restaurants.


Jewel of the Nile - Luxor Restaurant


Jewel of the Nile is owned and managed by Laura and her Egyptian husband Mahmoud.  Mahmoud and Alla are responsible for the excellent food they serve up whilst Laura does an exceptional job looking after the customers front of house.
Jewel Of The Nile Luxor 

Jewel of the Nile is rated number one of the Luxor restaurant. Jewel of the Nile is situated in the quieter part of town where you can relax and enjoy a pleasant evening away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas.  I say pleasant evening rather than a pleasant meal because the friendly welcome and excellent company of the staff will leave you wanting to linger after your meal is finished.  Although the restaurant is not particularly large you never feel rushed (as we were in some of the other restaurants).  Although we didn’t book our table I note from other reviews Jewel of the Nile is ranked number one of the Luxor restaurants  so you may want to book in advance to be sure of a table.  Telephone number listed below.Laura - Owner of the Jewel of the Nile Restaurant

Not only do Laura and Mahmoud serve up delicious fresh locally produced food at astoundingly reasonable prices (full menu and prices to follow, you have the added bonus of Laura’s extensive knowledge from living in Luxor to assist customers.  Don’t let Laura’s cheery youthful appearance fool you she has over 20 years experience in
the restaurant business together with a wealth of information on Egypt which is only too happy to share, if asked, not only advising on the cheaper options to
the overpriced trips offered by some of the tour operators but actually helping to make the arrangements.  In fact while we were there she even helped a
gentlemen by arranging flights to Cairo on the internet.

Laura’s passion for helping not only extends to customers but also the animals of Luxor.  As well as holding quiz nights to raise money for a local animal hospital there is a discrete leaflet, almost hidden amongst the salt and pepper pots on each table, providing information on the excellent work being done to improve the care of animals in Egypt.  This passion to help is not forced on you or even discussed unless a customer shows and interest, and even then you feel no obligation.  Whilst I realise this has nothing to do with the food I feel I had to mention this to give you an idea of the lovely welcome you experience when dining at the Jewel of the Nile.  Good food alone doesn’t always mean an enjoyable evening.


AStaff at the famous Luxor Restaurant - The Jewel of the Nilenyway back to the restaurant itself, as I mentioned the restaurant itself is in the quieter part of town, so unless you know about it in advance you may not find it so I have added directions for you at the bottom of the page.  Most of the restaurants in Luxor rely on passing trade a luxury that this restaurant doesn’t have, so I find it quite amazing that this restaurant has gained number one status merely on recommendation.  Congratulations Jewel in the Nile, I was about to wish you continued good luck but you don’t need it your restaurant speaks for itself, so all I’ll say is a heartfelt thank you for the best two evenings we had in Luxor.

I’ve been rambling on about evenings but I should just mention that Jewel in the Nile is open from 10.00 in the morning until midnight every day, not just the evenings.

The average temperature in January and February are 14 ° C, with a minimum of 9. It is better than in summer, although at night should have a jacket.

Best time to travel to Egypt

If we only consider the climate, the mildest months are March, April, October and November. If we can choose dates, these do not regret. Minimum of 14º and 20º.


Egypt Weather

The climate in Egypt and temperatures

Egypt in general is a hot, dry and arid country. But the climate in the Nile Delta and Upper Egypt Valley is different. The Delta has a moderate climate with summer temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius and high humidity, a Mediterranean climate. The rest of the country is dry and can reach temperatures of over 50 degrees at times. The desert nights can be cool and heat difference is very marked.

From April to May is a great time to travel and enjoy some heat without being overbearing.

In the Red Sea water temperature is nice but due to strong currents can become very cold, but usually is warm in summer. Throughout this coast and Sinai wind blows almost daily and it ideal for practising certain water sports.
