I was then met in Luxor by Ayman Abdel Rehim, who was as always very proactive, in getting my luggage and getting me through customs, and escorting me to The Winter Palace, where he dealt with everything in his usual calm and very efficient manner. It is always nice to see someone who has met you before, and Luxor seem to try and make a habit of it, and I think it is highly commendable.

Reflecting the vibrancy of modern Cairo, the airy guest room interiors feature natural wood finishes and comfortable, stylish furnishings. Most have private outdoor terraces for relaxing or dining, and all have triple-glazed windows to ensure that interiors remain cool and quiet.
Best time to be there
Winter (October to April) for cultural trips, although May to September is great for the Red Sea. Ramadan is a particularly exciting time to be in Egypt - it is celebrated here with more exuberance than anywhere else in the world.
