About us and our guests

Your Egyptian host studied Egyptology at university and is a qualified guide. We try to offer people a new form of accommodation in Luxor, with both contact with the ancient and modern culture and with peace and relaxation. Not everyone is suitable for organized cultural holidays. If you travel by yourself, you have more freedom to explore and to get to know the local population. In a foreign country, with a foreign culture, some barriers do however exist, especially for less experienced travellers, older people and people who travel alone (especially women).

This can also be true of the chosen accommodation. A Bed & Breakfast has a lot of advantages. Because it is someone’s home, the house is only used by the occupants (and their personnel) and the guests. It is not a public building. Guests are always welcome for a chat and/or a cup of tea. Our slogan is: individual, but not alone! We are alway willing to offer advice or information on places of interest, activities and practical issues. We can also organize day trips for you.
