Most tours to the valley of the Kings will stop here. There is so much to see in Luxor and it is not worth taking a trip to see just this. However well worth a stop to see on the way to another attraction.

You must visit this place if like me you are interested in Egyptology, so much to see and it is so interesting hearing about the history of Egypt.

I'm going to repeat what other reviewers have said and that this place is good for a quick photo stop. The statues are very impressive but thats all there is here. Street vendors a plenty though. Always after your money.

Our tour bus made a quick stop to show us 2 Big Statues of a Pharaoh in the middle of an almost barren field. The statues were not in good shape. There were vendors at the site and they try to sell you stuff the minute you walk off the bus. We were there for about 15 minutes and left... More

Nobody comes here except as a quick stop. Two big statues and that's all. There are big statues everywhere in Egypt.

Even if just for a quick photo it is great to be as to be up close and personal with all of this history. Not a destination in it self a nice stop nonetheless worthwhile

Neat, don't need a lot of time but still cool. They are in pretty bad shape but you can still imagine how cool they would have looked when first made and the craftsmanship needed to make them with the kind of tools available.

I have visited this site many times over the years, but this time (March 2015) it was different. They have recovered at the site several other monuments which are in the process of being re-sited. Well worth a visit.
