This Temple is one of my favourites and well worth the trip. It is magnificent and so interesting. You can have a drink to break up the excursion in the café nearby.

We visited this temple in mid-July after booking a tour of the West Bank with Thomas Cooke. The has been restored and is awe-inspiring. Overlooking the Nile it is beautiful spot to wind down your morning after visiting the Valley of the Kings. Highly recommend.

We visited here in the blistering heat and it was truly amazing, carved from the rock in the mountain it us currently under restoration by polish workers and they have done a fantastic job. The Hieroglyphics on the wall tell a story of how the ancient Egyptians traveled to Somalia and brought back tree's, fish and other rare items and... More

Beautiful architecture coming out of a mountain side on the opposite side of Valley of the Kings, when you see it you can see how it all fits together

I think Hatshepsut Temple at Luxor is one of the greatest architectural wonders of the world. I also believe that a lot of modern day Architect's were influenced by Hatshepsut Temple, including Frank Lloyd Wright The dramatic design and harmonious relationship with the natural surroundings of Hatsheputs Temple are a trademark of Frank Lloyd Wright. There is still a stump... More

Our guide was fantastic and so informative. It is essential to have a guide because to understand this period in Eygpt's history it is important to have a picture painted of the history of the country. An early start is required before the sun gets up as it can be very very hot even when we went in December! The... More

Very beautiful and large building, makes a very big statement in a very barren valley. You cannot enter the temple internals but it seems that some managed to bribe the guards and get in! On the way back there is a lovely shaded cafe to stop at. I would suggest visiting in the morning as it's a real sun trap... More

This place really is a wonder the colours, the stories. The are still uncovering more and more all the time and excavation is in process. The contrast you see from the desert, to the fruit fields and the Nile is amazing. Make sure you visit with a qualified guide to make the most of it.

The approach to the temple is majestic. It is one if the best photos you can take in Egypt. Unfortunately large parts of the interior of the temple are still inaccessible. But definitely worth a visit for its location and ambience
