About the tour

Take a walk with me tracing the route between Luxor and Karnak Temples. We will walk the streets beside the avenue taking in the incredible sphinxes and the local life of Luxor seeing the newly unearthed ancient monuments and the changes in the city landscape because of the discovery. We will talk about the discovery of the avenue and a bit about why the avenue was created and how it has affected the locals. Talking about the displacement of the people living on the avenue and what it means for the locals.

Although Lesley is a passionate tour guide, I guess it’s not her fault That the road of the Sphinxes is very much a lot of the same stuff to actually look at, but her history and interest in her country is admirable
