The karnak temple is one the distinguished identifying marks of Luxor in Egypt, where each of consecutive kings tried to make his temple most magnificent so as to be so distinguished than his predecessor, so the Karnak temples changed to a complete guide and collection showing the development stages of ancient Egyptian art and distinguished pharaonic architecture.

We stayed in Luxor for 1 week and visited most of the Temples around, but Karnak is awe inspiring especially if you do the Tour at Night. Our guide was brilliant in describing everything in detail, really gave us a good insight into its History.

My wife and I accompanied by our guide Azza (who can be contacted through Luxor Taxis), spent 4 hours in the Temple of Karnak. Put simply, the temple covers a vast area and is stunning. There are too many temples, hieroglyphics, obelisks, and huge statues...More

Loved this temple and all the fantastic details and history behind every inch of it. It is a must to have a good guide though as there is no certain other way to enjoy and know what is behind the scenes

Absolutely a fantastic site. You cannot image the magnitude of the structure without being there. Be sure you have a well qualified guide to lead you through the temple.

A lovely huge out door temple. But I would advise to go early as possible and take a guide. There were guides at the entrance for reasonable prices for an hour tour. The later you are there the more tour buses arrive and with that...More

I used a horse carriage for 10 Egyptian pounds to get to Karnak from Luxor temple (Dec 2017). You can either choose that or a taxi or simply walk, it's not more than 3km walk by the river nile.

Depends on the time you have to spend in Egypt. We took time to visit Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, and with so much to see we needed to squeeze in things when we could. Enjoy.
