Stunning place and with so much history behind it! I highly recommend hiring a tour guide to understand what it is all about, it is so interesting! I can recommend Aladdin from Luxor Travels :) Beautiful place.

Beautiful temple, shame about the poor horses pulling carriages outside being whipped to an inch if their lives.

So cool. Make sure you go earlier in the morning or later in the day, by 9:30am the tour buses have arrived and the hall of pillars is packed. This was my favourite temple. The details in the hieroglyphics and the size of this temple...More

This is a must see temple; it's difficult to comprehend the massive size of the columns and the incredible feat in building them. The two obelisks that stand near the columns are a beautiful sight to behold. The hieroglyphics written on the walls are amazing,...More

A fabulous group of temples covering a large area. It is worth time just to wander between the columns and imagine what it was like all those years ago.

Karnak Temple really is a gem in upper Egypt. The hieroglyphics are stunningly preserved and archeologists are discovering new things every day. Find a good guide and your walking shoes. It is a great place to explore.

Hi Stacey. Yes, it will be possible to access the Karnak Temple with with a stroller, but please be advised it's a cobblestone pavement, so not so even by the most part. When I was there, I've seen wheel-chairs being used... More

We have just returned from Sharm El Shiekh and had a great time this was our first time in Egypt and we are considering going to Luxor for my husbands 60th next year spending a week in Luxor and a week in either El Gouna or Hurgada. Hubby is mad about anything to do with Egypt and has always wanted to go to the west bank i.e. Valley of the Kings /Queens etc. And also Temple of Karnak east bank.My question is is it possible to cross from east bank to the west bank by ferry boat and do your...More

You could easily spend a fortnight in Luxor alone! Why not cruise for one week (the tours are good but hurried and limited to the most famous sites), then spend a relaxed week re-visiting the big sites and finding out the rest? Crossing on the local ferry is easy and costs LE2 return (20p) you can pick up a taxi from the ferry car park and they will take you to the many sites. Use the search engine for recent posts with details of cost etc. If you are happy just using a guide book, then...More

Trip report for Egypt (3 Replies)
Hi everyone. My wife and I took a whirlwind trip to Egypt in November and thought we'd share the amazing experience we had. We fell in love with the country, the sights it has to offer, and the friendly people there. Unfortunately, one week is never enough to see a country, and we wish we had had more time. DAY 1: Landed in Cairo early in the morning and got a limo cab from the airport to the hotel Semiramis for LE60. After resting, a late morning start had us grabbing a b&w cab...More

Planned 7 day Itinerary (Hurghada, Cairo, and Luxor) (3 Replies)
I'm more of an aggressive traveller/backpacker rather than the relaxing vacationer so I don't really need days of "rest" so to speak. That being said, I'm going to be in Egypt in late April for two weeks. One week will be on a liveaboard diving the red sea, and the other week is completely open. Here's what I have planned for my open week: Day 1 Friday Afternoon: Fly into Hurghada from London. Evening:Take the night flight from Hurghada to Cairo. Day 2 Saturday Morning &...More

You weren't joking when you said you cram a lot into each day. Make sure to double check opening and closing times so you don't have any surprises. I hope you know that you won't be able to drive an Israeli rental car into Bethlehem. Kfar Kedem is not open on Saturday. Western Wall Tunnels need an advance reservation. In terms of Christmas dinner, you may find it at places like Notre Dame in Jerusalem, but be prepared to not really notice anything that will let you know it is...More
