“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I went on a blistering hot July day and there was not one other person walking around the Temple at the time. And it was simply amazing. To be walking through something with historical value that is thousands of years old is a special feeling. After I visited I watched the sunset over the temple and see the colours change, which was beautiful.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Not as impressive as Karnak but a very beautiful piece of engineering, sculpture and social intent. It would have been an impressive complex with the two Luxor temples linked by the Avenue of the Spinxes. I hope that the government will be able to complete the restoration of the avenue

Luxor Temple was our first experience of Egyptian history; amazing! We were awe struck by the entire experience. We would thoroughly recommend this temple to anyone visiting Egypt.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

While not as impressive as Karnak, this temple is still amzing. Situated on the banks of the NIle, you won't want to miss it.
