You see this in films but it is amazing. Absolutely gorgeous with its surroundings. So peaceful. Lovely cafe at entrance were you are left to your own devices. Time just stands still here. The Egyptians built this without cranes and modern technology. They were so clever with how they did this. You climb quite a few steps but its worth... More

Sorry to lower the tone, but there are few places to visit where you can get a coffee!! Another very impressive site. If you can concentrate and absorb what your guide is telling you all the better. The ancient Egyptians were very clever people. It is just amazing how they could construct these temples, carve, draw and colour the rock... More

One of the best treasures of Egypt. Stunning in its size and setting. Just being there makes you realise how small you really are. Bit daunting to read of the terrorist attacks that occurred in the 90s but security has been ramped up with metal detectors on entry

The Temple is magnificent, if you get there before sunrise or at sunset, even better. The light is amazing, spectacular.

Beautiful place with a rich story behind it. I'd recommend going with a guide to have the inscriptions explained in detail. You are able to see the carving and colours that have remained for thousands of years. You can touch the walls, the same wall touched by Royals. Kings and Queens roamed the same corridors. Highly recommended.

Great part of history and and seeing paint that's 7000 is pretty cool, you can't go into the temple only exterior viewing.

Again, hady/hadi was our guide from Red Sea - fantastic. Please don't listen to the uneducated fools giving this absolute marvel a 'terrible' 'poor' or 'average' review. If you know nothing about the pharaoh queen then please read up on it as you will look forward to seeing this as I did. This in-lines with Karnak almost to the degree... More
