Since we had the Luxor Pass ($200 or $100, good for five days and all the monuments, tombs and museums. The $200 version includes tombs of Nefertari and Seti 1), we visited the Temple of Seti I. Not much left, but there are some nice carvings, a little hypostyle hall and a nice view if you climb the wall. It's... More

Not a high-priority site, but worth a look, if you have a little extra time and haven't gotten "templed out." You might have be the only visitor there. Buy your ticket first, though, at the main ticket booth near the Colossi of Memnon

I spent the money on this (1000 LE, about $60 at current exchange) and just didn't find it worth the money. There are other tombs better to spend a fraction of the money on.

This temple started by Seti I was finished by his son Ramesses II, and seems more a monument to himself than his father. Still interesting, and one of the few remaining on the West Bank.

This is a very important temple. It has many unique features one of which is the Abydos King List. It is a chronological list showing cartouches of most dynastic pharaohs of Egypt from Menes until Seti I's father, Ramesses I. The surrounding area is a very poor village and there is a nearby hotel called House of Life that is... More

Visited this temple and so happy to have done so. Our Blue Sky guide, Saber recommended this optional side trip which he explained had only been open to the public for 21 days. Our group of 7 people were the only ones in the tomb during our visit allowing us all the time we could imagine. The colors are all... More

Tour parties do not often invade this quiet spot on the edge of New Qurna. You will be able to wander around at will, and the guardians are not as "aggressive" as at most sites. The more nimble may enjoy the view from the roof. On a Tuesday or Saturday morning the local open-air market is held nearby. I also... More

Found this by chance and am so glad I did, it's breathtakingly beautiful and the carvings and depictions are outstanding , even to the sacred pool still being there. Just down from the Rasmussen, it's definitely worth a visit

This is a upper temple, and not one normally visited on tourist routes. Much of the outlying complex is gone, but there is a well preserved central area, with great carved scenes, columns and shrines. The perimeter wall also has a great walk around the top. It is not as impressive as the Ramesseum, but is well worth a visit,... More

This temple is well worth a visit when you are visiting sites on the West Bank It is not on the usual tourist trail,but it should be. I was amazed at the colour still to be seen in the temple. There is also the footings of a Roman house & church in the there. Quite a large site, it,s nice... More
