    Luxor Museum

    10 reviews

    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.

    Of course must for all visitors of Luxor. For I was there not only one time, I tell you, if you do not like the heat; visit the valley in the very early morning. When I was there... there where 60 degrees... air temperature! You buy at the entrance the ticket for 3 tombs, you need two for 6, of ...

    This is one of the few enclosed structures that we saw on our trip. Gives visitors a better sense of what these structures were like when they before they were damaged by history and the elements.

    Temple of Hatshepsut

    2 reviews

    One of my favorite sights near Luxor -- partially because it can be reached by a nice hike out of the Valley of the Kings. The architecture here is distinctive / a bit refreshing after visiting the tombs. Unfortunately, doesn't make it onto many day-trip itineraries.

    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.

    I dread cruises and really dreaded this one but was pleasantly surprised. The ship is intimate, never feels crowded, and the service and food were excellent. A good mix of luxury and local ambience. A wonderful way to see life along the river as well as the major sights. The roof deck on this ship is less luxurious than others. ...

    Hike to Deir al-Bahri

    1 review

    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.

    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.

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

    Nicely decorated workmen's tomb. Provides an interesting contrast to the more lavish tombs found in the Valley of the Kings.

    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.
