This site has only two giant statues. Our guide took us here with Kensington Tours. It's interesting. However there isn't much to see and it won't take long. There's continuing excavation at the site which may be of interest to some.

The setting was poor also had kids climbing over it so not able to take good photos. Ok for a quick stop and it's not chargeable.

The size of these statues is incredible. According to my guide, most of it was damaged by the big earthquake. It's worth a visit since it was part of my tour. But i'm abit undecided if you want to go all the way out here just for these 2 statues. Probably a good idea to include the other attractions nearby.

setting of the colossi is quite disappointing in between the sheds with some souvenirs and food and the policemen will watch that you dont walk too far away from the Colossi

They're big but barely recognizable. Compared to most of the sites these haven't survived the test of time well. There's very little at this site other than the statues. We spent less than ten minutes there.

Our organised tour stopped off here prior to the Valley of the Kings. The 2 main figures are stunning, even with their damage. Other monuments are now being excavated, making this a much fuller site in the near future.
