“When it is all recovered it will be spectacular”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The first part is right in front of Luxor, so you can't miss it. There is not really much to see but someday when the entirely recovered it will be excellent

“Spectacular if you let your imagination flow”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Only two parts can be seen, at the Luxor Temple and at Karnak Temple, they are in the process of restoring the whole 3km linking the two Temples. Various roads will be closed and re routed around Luxor, when the Avenue of Sphinxes is joined up.The whole area is being turned into a vast park, with statues and other smaller Temples being brought into the setting. I am looking forward to a return visit when this is complete.

“A must if in Luxor.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a sight to be seen, I was totally blown away with this site. Luxor is filled with sights as stunning as these, and all are worth a visit. I am not a historian, or into eygptian history, but I was touched by this mystical city and the history of this area. Will Definitely do it all again.

“A worthwhile project”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

The Avenue Sphinx will surely look amazing once finished and bring to life a piece of Luxor history in the process.
