    Karnak Temple is one of the popular ancient wonders and it is located near Luxor. This temple is very popular for its Hypostyle hall with 134 tall columns. Daily flights are available from Cairo to Luxor and you can book through Egypt Airlines. The flying time lasts about 50 minutes and cost about $250. Hope this helps!

    Karnak temple is located in the northern part of Luxor and you can hire a car from airport to reach this temple. Some of the places that I have visited during my Luxor day tour were Luxor Temple, Nefertari's Tomb, West Bank (Thebes) and the Valley of the Dead. Hope this helps!

    thanks for your help. Found a reliable car hire company and contacted them, they said there is a package for Luxor tour, so feel quite good, going to book online with them.
