About this activity
Start your day with a visit to the Temples of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as your guide explains how the massive facade was constructed. On entering the Temples of Karnak you will see each legacy left by the various pharaohs as the complex grew even larger. The deeper you go into the complex, the further back in time you will travel, with the oldest ruins dating back over 3,000 years.

Walking through the Great Court into the Great Hypostyle Hall, it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the 134 columns towering above you like an ancient forest. At the rear of the complex you will find the sacred lake where centuries ago pharaohs and their offerings to the gods were purified. After a tour of the complex, you will have additional free time to explore at leisure.

Continue to Luxor Temple which was once joined to the Temples of Karnak by a two-kilometer long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple. Dominated by statues of the great warrior pharaoh Ramses II, Luxor Temple has survived Nile floods, foreign invasion and thousands of years exposed to the elements.

A pure Egyptian temple, the inner walls and columns are decorated with intricate hieroglyphics which your guide will help you decipher. Find out how Alexander the Great wrote himself into Luxor Temple's history, and see one of the original pair of obelisk, the second of which now stands on the Place de la Concorde in Paris.

This is a private tour allowing you to determine the amount of time spent at each of the temples during the tour.

An excellent way to spend half the day touring these two temples. Karnak is an incredible complex, taking 2000 years to build, with many great stories inside on how things worked there. Luxor temple was also very interesting, even though there are a some very interesting architectural mistakes worth seeing. Must see places in Luxor, very well worth the visit!

We have booked the afternoon tour to Karnak and Luxor temples. We were picked up from our hotel in Luxor by our guide, a vibrant young man, baseem, who explained the history of these temples in great detail. The vast courtyards, the huge pillars of the great halls with intricate carvings on them, the statuesof Ramses ll, the rows of Sphinxes at entrance of Luxor temple impressed us very much. We gaped in wonder how the people of ancient Egypt constructed those Hypostyle hall with huge columns. All in all, our journey throughly these temples became lively with the help of our guide as he had a great knowledge of the history of ancient Egypt. I would recommend everyone to visit these places or the tour of Egypt will remain incomplete.
