Definitely one of the top places to visit in Egypt. The place is huge, a couple of hours is just not enough to explore all of it. Being with a private guide (or solo) is definitely the way to go, rather than in a big clumsy tour group. The only minor annoyance is that some of the "restoration" work which... More

We visited the Temple of Karnak a week ago and the weather was really hot. On a day trip from Sharm el Sheikh so probably didn't have enough time to really explore the whole site. The temple is very extensive, one of the biggest in the world. The obelisks here are amazing (look for the tide marks and rubbish later... More

The scale of this place is astounding. Our guide Reda was very knowledgeable and told us loads about it, but I wish we'd had more time to look round as the temples were huge!

Visited here as part of a Nile cruise. We got a taxi from the river to the complex itself which seems especially poignant given that there was a suicide bombing attempt there just two days after we were there and some locals lost their lives. Despite this, it should be noted that the Egyptian security did their jobs and no... More

Everybody should visit Luxor once in his life time. When you experience light and sound programme at Karnak temple at night, it looks that you are travelling in time machine of 5000 years back in history. Lovely place to blow your mind.

This was our first stop in Luxor and wow was it amazing. The scale of the place will blow you away! The photo opportunities abound. Don't miss the wall on the right side of the hypostyle hall that depicts the function of Karnak and Luxor temples (our guide Bishoy from Emo Tours took us through this in detail and it... More

We visited this place last week and it was 50 degree's at the time. Karnak temple is amazing and is definitely a must. We were on a guided tour from Sharm and we flew to Luxor for a full day of tours and this was the best part! I would recommend if you have the option that you visit this... More

Superb. This place has fantastic light show during the night. You can take a boat that cross the Neil River, and it is very fun also. But the light.... You must go there and check that out. It is a combination of modern technology and ancient Egypt, and the result is marvelous.
