The Karnak temple in Luxor is one of those things you just have to see. Not just for keen Egyptologists but everyone. If you enjoyed seeing the Piramyds, this is just as big scale and so rich in culture. We did this tour at the back end of a scuba trip in the red sea, all well organised by #RedSeaJol and as part of a the total experience. Our guide was Mamdouh Aboul Hagag and he was amazing with a wealth of info. Absolutely worth it.

Had the priviledge to visit the Karnak temple in Luxor, Egypt with friends. What an amazing experience, such a rich culture and I can not believe it still looks so well preserved after 1000's of years. A must for anyone visiting Egypt and interested in Egyptologie. Our tour was well organised by our tour operator, Red Sea Jol after a fantastic week of diving the red sea with them and the guide they provided, Mamdouh Aboul Hagag (Mimi) was amazing, so knowledgeable and I will highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Mimi and Red Sea Jol. Will always remember this!

I've never been so impressed with such a historic time period and place as Karnak - its ranks as high as the Pyramids and the Valley of the Kings - If your going to Egypt those are the spots to go to

I love being able to walk around these archeological sites when you can actually walk around, under and see all sides of the items. You can really explore this open air museum and marvel at what has been discovered and what has been reassembled. A must see.
