You Travel on behalf of Broadway Travel charged us £85 each for a 10 1/2 our round trip by coach for a 45 minute unguided tour that cost £1.50 to get in. You would be better getting a cab, a lot cheaper and quicker. Because...More

Abu Simbel is amazing, my daughter said this should have been the first temple. If it was the first the rest would have been a disappointment, as the size alone is just amazing. The drive through the desert went rather fast we started very early...More

All I can say is WOW> This was my favorite place in Egypt. The Temples have little side rooms that you can walk in. Beware of bats though!

The fist impression when I saw it was "Wow it is so huge" I wonder how they made it so big and beautiful without modern day machines. It is a must visit site to bring back some nice memories.

How can you top the Pyramids, the Sphinx? Go to Abu Simbel. My tour group took a 30-45 minute flight from Aswan, and then there's only one tour bus that drives to the site. It's a singular experience, stunning. Massive. No pictures are allowed inside...More

But in itself it is a wonderful enough engineering feat to justify the 3 hours drive in the desert by itself. The temples, now about 200 ft. higher are out of the water. And the 4 ages of Ramses a spectacular work of art.
