You simply dont appreciate the size of Karnak until you visit it, it's huge. The quality of the carving is incredible, and the size of the blocks is incredible. Take plenty of water as shade can be in short supply. If you are in Hurghada...More

Sights are excellent, tour guide fair. I have already provided a detailed review of this trip. The guide was also very interested in trying to have us book more tours.

I was astounded by the beauty of this place. I went here as part of a tour. Hundreds of columns all with hieroglyphs, this stretches over a lot of land, so even though there are tourist groups, it doesnt feel crowded. Great photo opportunity!

The vast majority of Egyptians are bi-lingual, usually with English as the second language. It would be a good idea to learn a few basic words and phrases in Arabic, the locals appreciate you making the effort.
