What people are saying about Temple of Karnak

A great day in Luxor with everything that goes with it! By the lucky coincidence that there were no other bookings, we had the guide and driver completely to ourselves and were able to organize the whole day at our own request and pace. So we could also see pages of Luxor that the normal tourist does not see.
