“Karnet Temple”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

The physical size of the Temple is awe inspiring how they built and carved these is beyond us makes you feel very small and insignificant late afternoon they turn on search lights to highlight the massive columns

“Very nice temple”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

It's a very nice temple. I saw it at the end of my time in Egypt so it seemed to be just another very nice temple.

“Should be visited to really appreciate”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Fresh from visiting the Valley of the Kings across the Nile, my guide and I found ourselves to be the only tourists in the entire area. Luxor Temple/Karnak huge on every scale and, selfishly, I enjoyed the loneliness as I could stand and marvel/photograph as long as I wished. The immensity of the place cannot be fully described, you must visit it. Normally, the area gets a minimum of 10,000 visitors per day and the locals are excited. But, as I mentioned, all over Egypt I found myself the only tourist or perhaps a small handful of others. The locals who survive on tourism are starving and, I found absolutely no reason for this. The areas are safe, there are military at key staging areas and it was totally peaceful. Mind you..I'm an American who stood out plainly in all places and I was never treated with anything except smiles and gratitude for coming to their site(s). If you have plans to visit Luxor...do not change them, you will be welcomed and you will enjoy your visit.

“Luxor Tenple Nice by day and nicer by night.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Luxor Tenple Nice by day and nicer by night. 
Overall satisfaction score  (0-10).         10.0

This temple was dedicated to the god of sun Amon-Ra and built by Ramses II
I had the chance to visit this temple a little earlier than sundown time and is a beautiful temple , with well preserved carvings and tall columns. At night it has lighting and makes a perfect picture site. 

WARNING . Be careful with the people selling stuff in there, if you don't have a real interest to buy don't even acknowledge them because ones you even say NO, looks like they hear yes and they'll keep offering their things for a long time. Ignoring them is really hard sometimes,  because some of them are very young and cute kids. 

WARNING 2. The people around the temple, hired by the site,  will offer you to pose for your pictures or give information or take pictures with your group and after doing that they will ask for money. Don't give your camera or any other of your belongings to nobody.

Excellent... flickering lights in some of the tombs add to the mystique. Carry wads of small cash and give a dollars worth to the caretakers of the tomb.
