This was a complete disaster. Oceania allowed a wheelchair with a long front extension on the excursion and several people ended up being tripped up by it. It was a 'no wheelchair' excursion. My partner tripped over the wheelchair extension during the night excursion to Karnak and ended up with a head injury. The Oceania staff were not there to assist, emergency staff were not skilled and a third world hospital is not somewhere you expect to be treated (on a luxury cruise)

Tour went very well, tour guide very informative and kept us on schedule as there was a lot of places we needed to visit. Went to the museum which was very good historically. Temple of Karnak was a large area and our guide took us to all the highlights and was very informative.

We saw this incredible sight only briefly, as we had wasted an hour at a shopping stop and didn't get there until just before dark (and closing time). The sight itself deserves the highest rating, but given the 3.5 hour drive between Safaga and Luxor and the tour operator's insistence on the shopping stop, we simply did not have enough time to appreciate it properly.

This is a very large temple. Bigger then Luxor actually, which was a surprise. There is a light show in the evening, which is worth the entertainment factor. The condition of the Temple was really good considering it over 5000 years old.

Collected us from ship exit. Excellent driver and knowledgeable guide with excellent English. Provided lots of background history on journey in air-conditioned mini-bus. Far better than going on cruise company's bus and no more expensive.

This temple is amazing and deserves more time. We were not allowed enough time to fully appreciate what we were seeing. (1 1/2 hours) Would strongly recommend people see this site - but do it from a Nile Cruise not from Safaga

The road of the sphinx, the hypostyle hall, and the giant scarab at the temple of Karnak are all famous - what surprised me was the number of columns that still maintain some of the colors in which they were originally painted. This place is huge and deserves a lot more time than we were able to give it. Our tour guide, George, and our driver, Hammada, were great. Hammada taught me three words, I can now count 4, 5, & 6, in Arabic (not that I'll ever need to, but I can).
