Hidden Luxor

Hidden Luxor Guidebook – 2nd Edition

Dear Luxor lover,hidden-luxorr

If you have caught the bug for Ancient Egypt, above all for the wonderful historic town of Luxor and want to know enough to decide what to visit next time without doing a three year course in Egyptology or reading a thousand books then this the book for you. Hidden Luxor is available direct from me.

My name is Jane Akshar and live in Luxor as I study Egyptology I constantly get people asking me…”tell me about the sites, what should I see, where can I get away from the crowds”. Generally they are people that are coming back for a second visit as they loved their first visit so much. However this time they want to get under the skin and I love to help them discover the things here in Luxor that I find so fascinating too.

Jane Akshar Egyptology Student

The 2nd edition is updated with the new sites that have opened since 2011 like the Roman temple of Deir el Shelwit and the many new tombs, including those at Qurnet Murrai. However the major addition is the result of my increasing lack of mobility, tips for the disabled. I has visited all the sites on my mobility scooter and give  the mobility impaired visitor an insight what is possible and what is not. The foreword by Paralympian Dan Highcock says “….2nd edition is absolutely fantastic in my eyes…….. it makes me want to book some flights to Egypt right now!”. There is even a section on tips for the visually impaired.

Let me explain more

People will ask me…

  • I want the children to enjoy the experience of exploring Ancient Egypt.
  • I want to avoid the crowds
  • Where are the best carvings and paintings?
  • I like walking to see the sites
  • Can you tell me where the snake goddess is?
  • I have problems with my knees where can I go?
  • What other gods were worshipped at Karnak?

After 13 years of being asked these questions I know exactly how to answer and I have put it all in this comprehensive, easy to follow ebook – just for you.

It is based on…

  • Experience as a guide showing people round the sites
  • Knowledge of Egyptology going back 45 years
  • Current studies at Manchester University
  • Attending and recording lectures held in Luxor by international experts
  • Understanding of what people like you want to see
  • Knowing what is covered by a standard tour
  • Touring the sites on my mobility scooter in 2016

This is hard won knowledge which took a long time and a lot of hard work to obtain. I am prepared to share it all with you. This unique book is a distillation of everything I love about Luxor, why I had to move here and why I have never got tired of visiting the sites.

Not only that I have given you links to books that if you should want to take it further you can read and enjoy, books by academics with a wealth of information, books for kids and guide books like Egypt on 5 Deban a Day. Every author is someone I respect and from mainstream Egyptology.

Which Part Of This Incredible Resource Will You Take Advantage Of First?

The descriptions of the sites, the walking tours, the recommended books, my suggestions? In fact you can even impress your friends and family advising them which sites to see and which to avoid, they will think you must have been studying in secret.

If you like walking I give you advice on the special places to go that are only accessible to the fit and active.

If you are in a wheelchair I can tell you which temples are possible and which are not

If you have children you can avoid the crowded places and go where they will enjoy. I have lots of experience and know exactly what appeals to them.

Hidden Luxor will show you….

What the various sites in Luxor and close by have to offer, which ones are the most interesting. I give you enough information so you can make an itinerary for yourself.
