Review of Hidden Luxor

This book was a great help when I was in Luxor last December. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting and wanting to see more than the “tourist” sites. PB

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT HELP IN EXPLORING LUXOR, 5 Mar 2013

I bought Jane’s “Hidden Luxor” before I spent four weeks there last December – January 2012-13. This was my second visit. Most tour guides give you basically the same information about the most common tourist sites. I had seen these and wanted to see more. I found this book most beneficial in helping me find places and things that I had missed on my first visit. Every night as I planned my next day I referred to Jane’s book to be sure I added “hidden Luxor” to the places I wanted to find and explore. I highly recommend this book as a must for the serious traveler to Luxor as well as the average tourist who wants to see more of this magical city. Hidden Luxor

I have just bought Hidden Luxor, I am so delighted with this book
Jane has an easy style of writing that hooks you in from the first page I have been to Luxor twice and missed most of the Temples mentioned will spend a lot of my time at Karnak to get the benefit of Janes chapter on Karnak, lovely story about her dads ashes and the Valley of the Kings, would recommend

Although the title alludes to places that are hidden in Luxor there are many that the tour guides will take you to in this book, but you will also find that at these places eg:Karnak there are many secret parts that you will never be shown by them.
Places included in this book are Karnak, Luxor Temple, Temple of Hatshepsut, Medinet Habu, Merenptah, Ramasseum, Deir El Medina, Seti I Temple, various Tombs, and many more.
There is plenty of information about how to find each hidden place, with a brief history just to wet your appetite.
This book is a hidden gem and I cannot wait to go back and explore hidden Luxor.

Now i feel like the Indiana Jones of Scotland. Whilst i have visited Luxor many times ( 26 now… yes i know i LOVE the place) I now find that Jane Akshars book Hidden Luxor has shown me secret gems that i have missed.. i just cant wait to get out there and track down these jewels that Jane has discovered. I totaly recomend this book to anybody even slightly interested in Egypt.
