Would you like to see the largest compound in the world ?


The complex of Karnak is a vast open-air museum and the largest ancient religious site in the world. It is probably the second most visited historical site in Egypt, second only to the Giza Pyramids near Cairo.
One of most famous aspects of Karnak, is the Hypo-style Hall in the Precinct of Amun-Re, a hall area of 50,000 sq ft (5,000 m2) with 134 massive columns arranged in 16 rows. 122 of these columns are 10 meters tall, and the other 12 are 21 meters tall with a diameter of over three meters.
Luxor Temple is a large Ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the River Nile in the city today known as Luxor (ancient Thebes) and was founded in 1400 BC.
Known in the Egyptian language as ipet resyt, or "the southern sanctuary", the temple was dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun, Mut, and Chons and was built during the New Kingdom, the focus of the annual Opet Festival, in which a cult statue of Amun was paraded down the Nile from nearby Karnak Temple (ipet-isut) to stay there for a while.

A Recent Review of this tour

Melad is just an amazing human. Not only did he take me to all of the most amazing sites in Luxor, but he also made me feel safe and at home every step of the way during my journey. He took me to the most amazing food, gave me a solid impression of local life, and helped me with everything from airport transport to saving a missing bag at the last minute. The tours were unbelievable as well. Melad has deep knowledge of the history and local culture. I can't imagine having a better Egypt experience.
