I visited as part of a tour. This place is remarkable and photos don’t reflect the true beauty of this site. It’s best to go with a tour guide as they point out so much detail that you wouldn’t know about and they point out...More

Best time to go- before sunset around 3pm. Crowded but could be due to school kids field trip that day. Still able to have great photo opportunities. Light shines thru ceiling and columns, just magical. Night show was not good - not worth the time...More

Stunning place and with so much history behind it! I highly recommend hiring a tour guide to understand what it is all about, it is so interesting! I can recommend Aladdin from Luxor Travels :) Beautiful place.

So cool. Make sure you go earlier in the morning or later in the day, by 9:30am the tour buses have arrived and the hall of pillars is packed. This was my favourite temple. The details in the hieroglyphics and the size of this temple...More

This is a must see temple; it's difficult to comprehend the massive size of the columns and the incredible feat in building them. The two obelisks that stand near the columns are a beautiful sight to behold. The hieroglyphics written on the walls are amazing,...More
