“Must see in Luxor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

You can spend hours visiting this temple. The site is huge with many interesting things. Bring a good guide book along or come with a tour guide to get the most out of it

“Karnak Sound & Light Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Good, informative tour. Bit expensive at approximately 100 Egyptian Pounds each but one of those most do trips.

“Got to be done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

If you have time, try and do the trip in the cool of the day - just amazing. Go to the sound and light show as well, a bit cheesy, but informative and spectacular.
Haggle for your taxi but beware the kalesh drivers - they will race the horse on return for a quick turn around. Try Mr Abu out side Nile Palace for a good taxi ride - fair and cheap. He is also a good bloke to book for rides further afield (Valley of Kings)

“Huge!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

This covers a massive area. Each king would add onto the existing temple/s. Best done with a guide otherwise you will miss so much. We visited about 2 hours on a very hot day but still managed to see a lot but by no means all. It's huge, It's amazing.
