Go on a journey from Karnak Temple to walking the path of Ancient Egyptians and the Romans to Luxor Temple. You'll hear incredible stories, legends and history with an Egyptologist plus gasp at the sights you see.
Starting from meeting your guide, you'll travel to the Jewel of the Egyptian Temples, Karnak. You'll then understand with your own eyes why, as Amelia Edwards wrote, "This is a place that has been much written about and often painted, but of which no writing and no art can convey more than a dwarfed and pallid impression”. Explore its spectacular complex of sanctuaries, kiosks, pylons and obelisks, all dedicated to the Theban gods and Egypt’s Middle and New Kingdom rulers.
Next, experience the Kabash path, also known as Sphinx Alley, and learn how it was built to connect the vast Karnak temple to the Luxor Temple. Plus, you'll discover that the Ancient Egyptians walked along the path once a year with the statues of Amun, the central god, and his wife Mut in a symbolic re-enactment of the deities' marriage. The road was later used by the Romans and is believed to have been renovated by the Ptolemaic Queen Cleopatra, who left her "cartouche" which is an inscribed hieroglyphic. The tour also includes a visit to Luxor Temple.
