    This memorial temple to Ramses III is in relatively good condition -- with much of the ceiling in some areas still in tact. Gives you a good sense of what the temples must have been like when they were fully operational. Nice colorful calligraphy here. Keep an eye out for the high-quality carvings at the top of the pylons.

    Small but attractive complete complex right in the middle of Luxor. Like the first place you'll visit when you arrive. Easy to walk to and attractive at all hours. Be sure to visit in the evening when the lighting adds to the ambience.

    I really wanted to love this. It has some nice displays but somehow doesn't quite live up to the majesty of the archaeological sights it is intended to support. A nice accompaniment to any studying you have already done but don't expect to learn a lot. The a/c here is a welcome blessing and was probably the highlight for me.

    Really beautiful and worth seeing but make sure you go on days when all the tombs are open and not just a few.

    It is very easy to hike out of the Valley of the Kings over to Deir al-Bahri to see the Temple of Hatshepsut. The hike isn't very difficult -- I think it took us about an hour with plenty of stops. Be sure to take water, a hat, and shades. During my hike there were no tourists and only one ...

    Relatively small but big on nostalgia. The big prize is the gold sarcophagus at the end of the walk.

    Even before the Revolution , the restoration of the house was causing by Dr. Hawass! Do not be confused by guides who offer a home on a plateau than that of Howard Carter. It is wrong. To the house of H. Carter, it was now green with vegetation, behind it is a is a cafe. Inside the house there was ...

    One of the more popular tombs. The paintings here are relatively well-preserved and some of the drawings retain a fair amount of color.

    Unfinished so lacking in some of the detail that you find in some of the other tombs. Relatively short. Missable if you are short on time.
