Hypostyle hall is, of course, one of the main highlights. However,... More

First time to Luxor what an amazing place!!! Take in the light show, it's like being in a 1970s sci fi movie. It really is incredible.

Visited Karnak Temple on our holiday in Hurghada, Egypt. Only option form here to Luxor is by road and the journey is about 3/3.5 hours long. Karnak Temple is a beautiful historic site and the trip was 'made' by the guide from the company we used. Well worth the visit and would recommend the Temple to everyone.
