Visit in the late afternoon when the wind blows from the NILE: it is cooling and with fewer tourist buses: makes for a magical experience. In the late afternoon the temple guardians are tired and less inclined to follow! You also miss the tacky tourist groups: the best experience comes in the spectacular silence of late afternoon or super-early morning!... More

It needs to visit the temple in particular during the night and better during a oncert of classical music. I still recall those moments and are fully impressed in my mind . Incredible sensations.

If you can stay over, go and visit the Temple at Night, its a whole different ball game in the evening. Just stay away from the pushy wallers who still try and sell you everything

Karnak is breathtaking and huge! They've done some amazing restoration work there and some is still ongoing. Due to our limited time in Luxor, we went in mid-day summer when it was 40C or so. I recommend getting a guide. We did not go with a guide and regret it, as we stumbled across some tour groups that were learning... More

Booked with Tours from Hurghada. Excellent company. Our guide Muhammad was first class. Booked in advance before we left for Hurghada. This was my favourite place ( we spent the day in Luxor )It's simply breathtaking with a fascinating history.

This temple displays the undue talent of ancient Egyptians in terms of architecture, physics and chemistry. It lends itself to beautiful photos, especially if you go there at sunset. Either read on the temple first or go there with a guide. Unfortunately, the temple also displays the feuds and pettiness between very real human beings, the pharaoh so, who wanted... More

Not far from the valley of the Kings this place is so immense you could visit it everyday and still be blown away by it. If I had a chance to visit Egypt again I would spend some more time here as it's easy to get caught up in the rush of touring trying to fit as much as possible... More

Wow this place is completely mind blowing, how they built it is fascinating. We had a very informative guide show us round the temple as part of our three day tour of Egypt and we were amazed by it all. This place is an absolute must if you are in Luxor and is something we will never forget.
