Create an itinerary including Luxor Temple
Walk in the footsteps of ancient Egyptians at Luxor Temple, a World Heritage Site constructed some time around 1400 BCE. The large sandstone temples, granite monoliths, and giant colossi were designed to celebrate the idea of pharaohs as kings and gods, rather than any particular god or individual pharaoh. As you pass through the vast site, notice the different additions made by non-Egyptian civilizations--special highlights include Roman murals and a mosque.

  • We did this a night and the lighting made it extra special. It was a sight to behold. Don't miss walking the Avenue of the Sphinxes and the boat used in the opening celebrations.

  • Lovely one specially by night. You can see the sphinx passage close to the entrance. Special dinners are done by night. Lovely place. I like this temple very much. Please keep it clean and nice. Try to provide some shades all around. Also you make the electric cars with extra money to go through out the whole temple. All the best.
  • Super interesting place with an unbelievable amount of thousands of years history. Egyptians, Greek, Roman, ... they all left their marks and scars on the original ancient temple stones. We went here with a guide who showed us many details and told interesting stories around it. Highly recommended to do like this, it prevents you from just walking by history without really knowing what you are looking at
