    Luxor
    Stop: 12 hours
    Pay a visit to the East and West Banks of Luxor to discover some of Egypt's most magnificent archaeological landmarks. Explore both the Karnak and Luxor temples before marveling at the lavish burial ground of the Valley of the Kings and the striking sight of Hatshepsut Temple. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ancient city of Thebes covers Luxor’s East and West Banks of the Nile. Begin on the east side as you admire the vast rooms, obelisks, and Sacred Lake of the Karnak complex. Wander along the Avenue of the Sphinxes that connects with the Luxor Temple, home to impressive statues of Pharaoh Ramses II. Make the journey across the river to see grand architecture used for burial purposes and learn how the tombs were carved out of the desert rock, decorated, and filled with treasures to accompany the ruling classes into the afterlife. Marvel at the 2 soaring statues that form the Colossi of Memnon before your tour is completed at the Hatshepsut Temple.

We had a full day trip visiting Luxor. We stood at Titanic Royal Hotel in Hurghada and the transfer was ok. We went to the Valey of Kings, to Hatsepsut Temple but Karnaka was amazing.
Highly recommended! Our guide told us many stories about how it was built and everything, so it is very intreresting,

I am not sure I can describe Karnak Temple in all its glory but i will try.The temple was built on the Nile river around 2050 bc it has 134 columns, a grand avenue of sphinxes & obelisks and much more. The block of pink granite for queen Hatshepsut is amazing, & to think it's in one piece. All the columns are engraved & some have painted figures on them there is also a sacred lake. This is a must see if you go to Egypt.

Amazing Karnak Temple, so huge and impressive. Even more amazing (if possible) The Temple of Hatshepsut, and the Valley of the Kings. To be in this part of Egypt and not visit these, it would be a huge mistake.
I am pretty sure we will go again!

What an amazing place, standing on a piece of history. Busy even out of season but you would not want to miss. Our tour guide was a great, and it felt surreal walking around and admiring this amazing site.

This is one of the most amazing temples complex left in our days from ancient Egyptian civilization.
It is not one temple, it is a collection of temples that has been built over a long time (may be 20 years or even more).
The great hypostyle hall is outstandingly mind blowing with enormous columns that keep the visitor breathless thinking how they were all erected.
Still there are remaining authentic colors in the ceilings.
The place is very vast and requires more than one visit, and nobody can visit Luxor without being there.

It is impossible to grasp that this 2055BC structure was 1) still standing, 2) amazingly preserved and 3) overwhelmingly gorgeous. A must see! Overwhelmingly fantastic!

Karnak Temple carries a lot of importance once you know enough history about Queen Hatsheput about how she built the royal step way fro herself from west bank to east bank.

This is the best way to see East and West Bank in one day, so if you don't have more than a day, this is the way to go. Everything that you will see is well worth it and the lunch is at a very interesting Banana Island. We took felucca ride before lunch and that proved to be great experience and a great break from sightseeing. We highly recommend it.
