Passengers from the Silversea Silver Whisper had an overnight in Luxor at the Sonesta St. George Hotel, traveling the 3 hours from Safaga on the Red Sea via coach. We visited Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple the first day, and then returned to Karnak for the light and music show that evening. Our second day was spent on the West Bank of the Nile in the Valley of the Kings and Medinat Habu.
After spending just two days in Luxor, I could see why is it so popular with tourists. Over 300 riverboats cruise the Nile each year, so cruise lovers have two options for seeing Luxor--excursions from Red Sea ports or on a Nile River cruise. These dozen pictures are some miscellaneous sights from around Luxor.
