Not crowded and very interesting to see. A "snapshot in time" and a pretty setting. Interesting to see how the explorers lived while they excavated in the area.

2 days is not very long to spend in Luxor,but even so you should be able to see the VOK and Karnak and Luxor temple. There are buses to Luxor from Hurghada ,but quite a long journey,but I believe flights are available too.
