Train to Luxor or Aswan

My wife and I will be visiting Egypt in October and had a few general questions.

Has anyone taken a train during the day from Cairo to Luxor or Aswan and if so did you feel the scenery was worth the day trip instead of the sleeper?

Has anyone used K.T. Travel Egypt and if so what feedback could you offer?

I've done the Cairo to Luxor day train and back again. I enjoyed it as you see a lot of small villages. But it's nothing extraordinary and nine hours is a long time on a train. They sell hot tea, soft drinks and wrapped sandwiches but nothing more. The toilets are not good and nine hours is a long time. If you don't mind the cost, take the sleeper.

Haven't heard of KT Travel but can recommend Tut Egypt Tours in Luxor. www.tutegypt.com
