the luxor temple was disappointing for us. not much to see when compared to karnak. i would recommend driving or walking by it and checking it out from the road on the nile side if you must see it.

Another fabulous temple! My tip is to visit it at sunset so that you can see how it changes with the light. It's very dramatic.

Not as amazing as the temple of Karnak, but still a great sight in its own right. Plenty of statues and pillars to see. Worth a visit

Enjoyed this experience. It was also very interesting. The atmosphere at night makes it even more realistic.

We explored this temple in mid-July after booking a tour of Karnak and Luxor Temple with Thomas Cooke. The highlight for us was the sitting Ramesses II Colossus and finding the cartouche of Alexander the Great.

We were lucky enough to visit this temple by night. It was a new experience to visit a sight by night and we really loved it with the lights on the pillars and statues. thanks for our guide who made this suggestion.

And it is so easy to visit. Again it must be visited early in the morning especially during these months when heat has to be taken into account. The "Sphinx Road" goes from Luxor all the way to Karnak.
