What people are saying about Temple of Ramesses II, Karnak

Today we did the tour from Hurghada to Luxor with Mohammed Baraka. First we went to the Karnak temple. Beautiful all those columns and avenue with Sphinxes. We then did the Nile boat tour to Banana island (really something for tourists, but still nice to get a breath of fresh air on the water). Then we had lunch and visited the Hatsepsut temple. The front view of the temple is especially impressive. Finally, we visited the Valley of the Kings where we visited 3 Ramesses tombs and the tomb of Tutankhamun. The last was the least impressive, but because the mummy and sarcophagus were still there, it was definitely worth it. All in all a very nice and complete trip. Highly recommended.

Ahmed bahaa ✨✨✨✨✨ , Highly recommended! He was a great tour guide with fluent English. We went to several different places, including west side and east side of Luxor. He explained in details about the ancient Egyptian history. It was enjoyable with fun personality. With him we enjoyed Vally of the kings, Vally of queens, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Karnak temple, and Luxor temple. Tickets was included, no hassle to buy on your own. Delicious lunch was included. Nice driver took us to every sites. Definitely worth it if you wanna have great time in Luxor 😄✌️

Mushi our guide was brilliant she was so knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for her, we were in a small group of 7 if I ever go to Egypt again I want her as my guide. The only thing I would say is get a cool box as drinking water is essential in 41 degree heat, but all the water provided was lukewarm. And the shops we visited were in or around the temples where the prices were inflated for tourists. In fact one store tried to charge us 10 euros for a small can of Fanta!! And 5 euros for a bottle of water But all in all a fabulous experience

Jackie my guide was more than fantastic 🌹🌹🌹🌸⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️she made the day so easy .I had fun with her enjoyed every moment. She speaks perfect elegant English,deep knowledge…….thank you Jackie for this wonderful day .you did an amazing work.I wish to repeat this day again one day who knows 🌺🌺🌺🌺
