A massive complex and temple, amazing structure, it was sad to see some things vandalised or covered up with plaster on the columns for example.
We had a guide explain lots of fascinating things half of which I have already forgotten by now.

Hi Stacey. Yes, it will be possible to access the Karnak Temple with with a stroller, but please be advised it's a cobblestone pavement, so not so even by the most part. When I was there, I've seen wheel-chairs being used, so should be fine for a push-chair too, I guess. I won't advise carry on the little ones - the distances in Egypt are vast - we walked 10km straight on an "average" full-day tour! Just make sure to use sunscreen and hats as the shade is sparse over there - after all, you're somewhat in the desert!
