we went there around 1600 and were the only visitors at the site. Unlike other Luxor sites, there are palm trees around, which make for brighter photos. The site requires a little imagination, but is impressive.

From the entrance of the sight the view is spectacular and the inside fulfills all your expectations. Absolutely magnificent in and out. It is a long drive from any where but well worth it.

Consider visiting Seti's main temple in Abydos. Much larger, and very fine reliefs. Abydos is about 160 km away from Luxor.

The tomb is huge and great history associated with it. Unlike the Temple of Karnak and Luxor which is built by sandstone. This temple is built by limestone from the local quarries.

We were the only ones visiting this temple, so it was nice and quiet, but it is well worth seeing it. It's not too big, so easy to do and has some lovely wall carvings. Well worth visiting.

You should call Mohamed M. Abdelrahim at Mobile 010 10 24052 and arrange for a private tour. He is an English speaking Egyptologist with over 30 years experience. He is amazing and will keep you safe.
