2 Days 1 Night Travel Package To Aswan & Luxor From Cairo

23 reviews
Ancient Egypt’s ruins occupy hundreds of miles of desert. Hit the highlights in just two days on this action-packed private guided tour by plane and private vehicle. On day 1, fly to Aswan to see the High Dam, Philae Temple, and Abu Simbel Temple Complex. On day 2, drive to Luxor for the Valley of the Kings, Colossi of Memnon, and temples of Karnak, Luxor, and Hatshepsut, then fly back.

The sound and life show at Karnak temple an inspiring piece of theater that provides information into the building of Karnak temple and what brought about the dedication to the unseen god Amun. It was a clear winter's night which turned out to be the coldest night in Luxor's recorded history. The soundtrack and the visuals to the show were at times difficult to understand. We had to look around a lot to see what was being lit up. The best part of the show was at the end of the program when seated on the stands gazing across the sacred lake. I would suggest that anyone purchase the DVD of the show as it is very well done and has better colors than the actual show, plus it helps to figure out what you may have missed from the show.

The best part of the the entire show was walking through the Karnak Temple at night and having certain parts illuminated in a dramatic fashion. The show itself was rather dated and unimpressive. I just do not think it was worth the admission price.

It’s really great—you walk through the temple, and actors, via loudspeakers, tell the stories of the pharaohs while projectors focus images on the various temple sections that help tell the stories. We loved strolling through this show by night.

Just to be clear, I just reviewing the light show. The Karnak Temple in day is the best thing in Luxor. However, the light show is a disappointment. Just a bunch of dancing lights repeating themselves, with a loud and very dramatic 1950's style commentary, which does not tell you much. Please avoid.
