  • Valley of the Kings

    Luxor Things to Do

    This place is also well and truly on any visitors list when coming to Luxor. An enormous place full of various different sized tombs. Your entrance ticket grants you access to 3 and if you purchase the extra Tutankhamen ticket then you have 4. There is nothing to stop you buying multiple tickets so you can see them all but i found once i had seen...

  • Karnak Temple

    5 out of 5 stars

    Luxor Things to Do

    You get to the Karnak Temple and it's dark. There are hundreds of people waiting for the Sound and Light show to start. The sound was terrible, it was full of static and hard to hear as most of the tourists were chatting during the sound portion. The Light part of the show, well the only thing I can figure is that the lights were highlighting...

    Luxor Things to Do

    Maybe, the most interesting thing is to look from distance In Luxor. You will have a look of modernity, the building seeming a recent classical construction (maybe because it may have been reconstructed) . It’s a good opportunity for you to imagine the opulence of all those palaces, when they were not ruins but living places. Of course, when you...

    Luxor Things to Do

    No point in regurgitating what everyone else says. If you make it this far, go see the Temple. Just be prepared to run the gauntlet of souvenir salesmen and novelty shops when you are getting close to the gate.

    4 out of 5 stars

    Luxor Things to Do

    Generally called Memnon's colossi, this two big statues is what remains from Amenhotep's temple built in the 14th century BC. Noises caused by he wind or evaporation in the rock gave the statues a "singing" reputation, after an earthquake that broke of of them. In 199 AD a roman emperor had the statue repaired, and the "music" stopped Memnon has...

    Price was 60LE for 1hr at sunset after some bargaining. Captain's name was this young guy called Mohammed and boat name was Shangri-La - out look for the Bob Marley picture on the the main sail - his boat docks opposite Luxor temple. Highly recommended. Aim to start the cruise around 4.30pm latest to enjoy a perfect sunset. I was lucky enough to...

  • Hot Air Balloon

    Luxor Things to Do

    If you like ballooning or even if you have never tried - this is a once in a lifetime thing to do. I was picked up from the Nile boat on the East bank before dawn and transpoted across the river to catch the balloon - literally! Being in one of the second groups we had to follow the balloon in a jeep and wait for it to land, then it was one out,...

  • Medinat Habu

    Luxor Things to Do

    Paintings are the most important detail in Madinet Habu, but don't be mislead - the temple itself, without the size and power of Karnak or Luxor temples, it is also a fabulous building with the splendours of Egyptian architecture. Our guide gave us lots of explanations about some architectural details, but... the paintings... you know!

  • Valley of the Queens

    4 out of 5 stars

    Luxor Things to Do

    A great way to see the Valley of the Queens is to hire a balloon and see it from above. It is a spectacular site from above and should not be missed. For over two centuries, since its beginnings in France and well before the invention of the airplane, ballooning has been an exciting form of travel. It offers the rider a chance to see the world from...

  • Valley of the Nobles

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Luxor Things to Do

    As I mentioned earlier, Anne and I were very impressed with the tombs of the Nobels which are home to the best “reliefs” and hieroglyphics depicting daily life. In the valley of the nobles the security guards seemed more prevalent than they were in the Valley of the Kings! This made it hard to get any one on one time with a guard that may be open...

    Luxor Things to Do

    The workers that built the great tombs of the Pharaohs lived in a village not far from the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. Many tombs have been discovered here. The workers tombs at Deir el-Medineh are well worth a visit. They are not in the same league as the tombs in the Valley of the Kings but they are every bit the equal of the...

    Known as the Ramesseum, the mortuary temple of Pharaoh Ramses II, who reigned for 67 years, is considered one of the most elaborate in the Necropolis of Thebes. The temple was built in the 13th century BC and modelled after the mortuary temple of Pharaoh Sethi I, also in western Thebes. Unfortunately, when I was in the Necropolis of Thebes in...

  • Camel Ride

    Luxor Things to Do

    What is a visit to Egypt without a camel ride? Just about any tourist destination worth its salt in Egypt has the elderly gentleman with one tooth asking for you to take a ride on their camel named “Ferrari.” The only time you will not see the old man is when a very young child has moved in on his territory and goes for the “feel sorry for me”...

  • Avenue of the Sphinxes

    Luxor Things to Do

    A long avenue of sphinxes connected Luxor and Karnak Temple, about 3km away from each other. At the Luxor Temple end you can find sphinxes with human heads and lions bodies and at the Karnak Temple end you can find criosphinxes, which are sphinxes with lions bodies and ram’s heads. Archeologists think that this causeway consisted of 730 sphinxes,...

  • Balloon Ride

    Luxor Things to Do

    We thought yesterday was an early start? Today we had a 4am start to reach the balloon launch site in time for sunrise. The planning was a bit disjointed, with us being shunted from one group of tourists to another with each change of transport: bus, boat, van. I had the impression that the "good deal" we had been given on the balloon flight was...

  • Dendera Temple

    Although not one of the oldest temples in Egypt I found Dendera to be one of the most impressive mainly due to the fact that it is pretty much still intact with an accessible roof and crypt.There are surprisingly few tourists that come to Dendera (my daughter and I were alone on our visit), those that do often take the day long cruise from Luxor...

  • Sphinxes Avenue

    The ýSphinxes Avenueý is one of the highlights of the modern city of Luxor, comprising both the temples - the Luxor temple & the Karnak one. The avenue used to be much longer, reaching up to several miles in length, linking the Luxor temple with the Karnak temple. Only the two ends of the avenue have withstood the trials of time.
