“BIG and impressive”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Gigantic and impressive. Sphinx in compound also very nice. The detail, the ego, the artistic license. Details brought alive by Taha from Your Egypt Tours. He's excellent.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

You need to see this. There is a lot that is spectacular in Egypt, and although (of course) this is smaller than the Pyramids and the Sphynx, it has detail and a story that make it a must see.

“Obvious Confusion”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The heading is for the statue of Ramses II IN CAIRO not the one in Memphis. There were two giant statues found at Memphis in the 1890's. The smaller of the two (this one) was moved to Cairo in 1955 and placed before the main railway station. The other larger statue remained at Memphis and is still there. Both are impressive and well worth seeing however some of the reviews are for the Memphis statue. Do yourself a favour and see BOTH.

“Watch out for the Guardians”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This statue is well preseved and laying in a structure that enables you limb to get a better view of him. The guardians stand close and want to be pictured with him but then will ask for Bakeesh for the privalege of being in your photo.

“Interesting and differnet”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is one of the main attractions of the Pharaohs culture. I think it's a standard attraction spot on any tourist's itinerary. And I think it is really, really worth the effort.
