When your ship docks in the Luxor port, take a journey through ancient Egypt on this nighttime shore excursion to the Temples of Karnak -- one of the largest ancient religious sites in the world! As you walk along the illuminated Avenue of Sphinx on this narrated tour, enjoy a magnificent sound and light show through the temple complex and learn the fascinating history of Upper Egypt and the New Kingdom.

Journey back to ancient Egypt as you leave the Luxor port and travel north to the Temples of Karnak on this exciting nighttime shore excursion. Enjoy private transport as you travel north to one of the largest ancient religious sites in the world!

The show begins as you walk along the illuminated Avenue of Sphinx.

Learn about powerful rulers like King Tut, Ramses II and Queen Hatshepsut, and discover how this incredible site was the region’s main place of worship during the 18th dynasty.

The story of Egypt continues as you sit overlooking the Sacred Lake and admire the beauty of the temples as they come to life and illuminate the night sky. Then see the temples sparkle in the distance as you make your way back in time to board your ship.
