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.

This was a nice place to start my family tour of the city of Luxor at. It includes very large statues of some of Egypt's most powerful Pharaohs! The bazaar there is also very cheap if you want to buy some cheap souvenirs.

Is a must if you are visiting Luxor. The only issue is people trying to sell you things they don't want to give up. Just say no thank you.

I last visited the Colossi in the 1980's and I was surprised at the amount of development that has taken place in the intervening years. A viewing court-yard has been constructed and there are a number of retail outlets in the area.

Not one of the best things to see. They're big yes and there's an interesting story behind them. Small bus parking spot next yo them. If you're on an escorted tour you'll only get a few minutes to take some snaps but you don't need linger as you get mobbed by the traders and kids. Once you've seen it that's... More
