The complex is huge and well maintained. Despite the hundreds of visitors there, you don't feel very crowded because of the size and scope of all the artifacts. Don't forget to go all the way to the far end of the complex as the styles of the temples do differ significantly from one another.

A must see if in Luxor. We didn't have a guide, but it would have been helpful, although there were signs and things were labeled well.

We came back in the evening for the light show. It was very well down. The only issue we ran into was a group of tourists who were using there camera flashes throughout the... More

Great sight. Very large. Allow a couple of hours. Beautiful. Lots of tourist. Could be hot in summer. Need a guide to get the most out of the temple. Largest temple in Egypt.

What more is there to say? If you're visiting Egypt, you'll invariably visit Karnak. This huge temple complex was built thousands of years ago and continually expanded. The detail and scale of the complex will overwhelm you. We spent ~1 hour here, and should have spent more. Since we had our own guide, I cannot comment on the guides inside... More

To make it short, this is a must for... More
