What an incredible tour and temple! This is a must see place. Hany was a superb guide, he was very knowledgeable but did not overwhelm you with information. Which is good as after a few temples your brain goes on overload. His English was very good and he's very friendly and welcoming. The temple is beautiful. Amazing to see the colour and astronomical representations. We went early so it was not too hot and really enjoyed walking around taking in the place and its energy. Hany was very punctual and the driver also very good and a safe driver. We had a comfortable car with air con, bottles of water and seat belts (which sometimes is a luxury in Egypt).
If I could, I would do it all over again tomorrow.

Today’s half day tour was amazing. Rosdhy provided lots of information about dendera and the depictions on the wall. The blue paint is still visible on the pillars and the ceilings are tall and beautifully decorated.

This was a great tour with the tour company REFLECTIONS. They were prompt with picking me up in a nice air conditioned car. The temple of Dendera is HUGE & Mohsen (my tour guide) took his time to show me many parts of it. He explained a lot of the myths & legends of the temple in such a great way. Definitely book this trip with Reflections for such a great tour!

I very much enjoyed the temple and the tour. Roshdy from Reflections Travel was a good guide and he provided a balanced amount of information, more so than my other guides. I would go with him again. I felt comfortable throughout the experience. The temple itself was my favourite over Karnak and Luxor.

Nice vehicles as well making the trip very comfortable.

Google noted the temple only opens at 9 but it looks like it opens earlier, so I suggest going earlier. Perhaps at 6:30 start. It takes 1.5hrs there and back. Make sure you have enough water.

Roshdy, our tour guide, was absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable. I can say confidently that i trusted him and his judgment. I went with my close friend who had a disability, and Roshdy was extremely accommodating and hospitable and allowed us to enjoy the tour to Dendara slowly, at a great pace, and not feel rushed or pressured. We chose Dendara with "Reflection Travel" because they offered a single tour to to Dendara, rather than offering both Dendara and Abydos, to reduce the length of the tour. This was perfect for us, as the tour lasted about 5 hourish. Roshdy made sure that we had enough water, and allowed us to rest when we wanted to sit. He was also extremely knowledgeable, and has a very good heart, and great passion for knowledge about ancient Egypt. Reflection travel is an excellent tour company. Highly recommended. I am American and from Los Angeles, and we felt safe in the hands of our driver Abdul as well. The ride was also very comfortable, as we were able to request a larger vehicle to accommodate my friend and his crutch. Want to say once more, Reflection travel tour company has been excellent, and Roshdy and Abdul have been amazing.

We went to the tour to Dendera temple and it was the highlight of our trip! Our guide Roshdy from Reflection tour was very knowledgeable and provided a great experience at the temple. We had a lot of fun learning about the history of the temple and looking at the beautiful temple. Great experience! We highly recommend!

The half day tour to Hathor Temple was one of our favorite experiences in Egypt. Our guide was very informative and made the experience even better. We did a few tours on our own using local taxis and this tour was a definite upgrade, really nice van too. Since it’s a bit out of the way, there was only 1 other person there. We were able to wander and explore a totally intact and empty temple.

Dendera was amazing. Worth the drive. The walls still show lots of the original colors. It’s also three stories. A basement type of hallway and a balcony as well as a pool. Lots of amazing depictions are still visible! Would recommend going and taking the half day for the journey. Roshdy provided us plenty of information about the area and showed us all the popular places. Thanks!

Mohsen explained everything so well, but my highlight was looking at the ceiling on each side of the ceiling to see a godess, I forget her nsme giving birth to each of the twelve zodiac signs we still use today. Dendara was not an option on our cruise and we decided at the last minute to go. But I can say, it was worth every penny and probsbly one of the highlights of my 3 weeks in egypt. The colours and detail after 4000 years are awe inspiring.

We booked a half day tour to Dendera temple. Not as known, but worth the drive. Picked up at the hotel lobby in a clean car with driver and guide. Provided with fresh cold water all the time. No stops at shops of papyrus workplaces 😉. Guided tour at the temple of good quality. Afterwards some free time. And drive back to the hotel. Clean car, good service. I would do it again
