Yer sure, take a taxi from Karnack to Quinna, take train, North to El Baliana, about 3 hours, change for direct to Luxor Station at approx 5p.m. Southbound direct to Luxor Station arrive 3 hours later,..........good luck. :wi :wi :wi .

From Luxor to Karnak it is much easier to take the metro, one Egyptian pound.

Sorry I don't know why you are all giving this guy the wrong info surely he would be better getting the train to Benu Suef then to Qena and a taxi from there on.

That depends on what class you are in, and whether or not you have am ISIC. Also how much backsheesh you pay your police escort.

Sorry to have to tell you this but the Karnak metro has been closed for several days due to wet leaves on the tracks. If you sit in a quiet, dark room and repeat this post to yourself...
