About the owner: We live in South West London but have been involved with the Luxor West Bank for the last 10 years, working with our local partner and manager, Khyry.
Why the Owner Chose Luxor: For independent travellers, we believe we offer a wonderfully unique experience of the Luxor area and provide a great deal more than any packaged holiday for a very reasonable price.
