Hi there

While you are waiting for an answer here, you may well get a more specific answer by asking the same question on the Sharm forum - here is the link

It will be easier to book your trip when you are in Sharm. Lots of tour companies will offer it as an excursion.

It will be a long day - I have seen the Tour Buses arriving from Sharm around 10:00 at Karnak, they presumably leave soon after 02:00?

But as Elizabeth says - book from Sharm

You can fly from Sharm direct to Luxor and back on certain days of the week Egyptair have fares around 1500le to 1600le you should book soon if you want to fly as these may increase as they are small aircraft. You can make arrangements for Luxor separately and not spend about 12hrs each way by bus the driving here can be like F1 but without the training and skills!

Flight leaves Sharm at 07.30 arrives Luxor 08.20

leaves Luxor at 21.25 arrives Sharm 22.15.

One thing to remember is that if you plan on doing the trip you will need to get a visa in Sharm.

@ Scunnybunny75: Sorry, I don't understand. Why would a person need a visa when flying between two Egyptian cities? What am I missing?

Sharm is in a specially defined immigration area, presumably to encourage new tourism, and you don't need an Egyptian visa to go there. The rest of Egypt, , the mainland as it were, you do need a normal visa. This applies to EU persons, don't know about other nationalities.
