Stroll along the majestic Avenue of the Sphinxes which connects the Luxor Temple with the Temple of Karnak to the north – an incredible sight and experience!

For those who prefer the feel of the sand beneath their feet, then a Desert Safari may be more your style – enjoying the stunning landscape and images of the local Bedouin tribes as they go about their daily life.
