594 Reviews

The Avenue of Sphinxes was the site of ceremonial processions and originally connected the temples of Luxor and Karnak, although it is considerably more recent than either of those sites, dating to around 380 BC. It stretched some 1.5 miles (2.7 kilometers) and would once have had 1,350 sphinxes lining its sides. Around half of those have been uncovered, with many reworked by later civilizations or sitting in museums. Much of the avenue itself is covered by modern buildings.

There are dozens of examples in various states of preservation forming the immediate approach to each temple. Some of them bear the cat-like features of the famous Great Sphinx at Giza, others have rams’ heads. The entire avenue is the subject of a major ongoing excavation project.

After arriving in Luxor, this tour is the absolute perfect thing to start your holiday. We are glad to give you the first impression of our small but great city and give you a lot of recommendations, which inspires you for the next few days. We start the walk from in front of the railway station and go through most of the main avenues in the city. We will see the most important and magnificent locations of Luxor, visit the heart of the city and walk down to the Bazar and the boulevard, which is one of the hottest rising destinations for travelers in recent years. Later we can take a ferry ride in the Nile River to see the city with an incomparable panoramic view. There’s not enough space in this paragraph to describe all the important sites of Old City, but when you are with a friendly and knowledgeable local who was born and raised in Luxor you can feel like you have a live google with you.
