  • Fantastic majestic structure. I enjoyed every second of my visit there. It is a World Heritage site and you can understand why when your standing in front of it. The long walk up the stairs/ramp towards the upper building gives you the chance to really appreciate the workmanship and knowledge it took to create this structure. The history behind is so interesting. A good guide is imperative.
  • When the police start offering to take you behind the closed off ropes, don't. They are just trying to scam you and will be expecting a tip. Saw Many tourists fall for it. Although I understand how it's natural to follow orders when a guy with a machine gun tells you to "come over here".
  • This big and ancient temple of queen Hatshepsut is really worthy to visit. Many pillars surrounding by desert and mountains looks very impressive. Nearby You have the Mentuhotep's Temple. Youmcant come everywhere - sometimes its not allowed to enter the temple but still its impressive.
  • Loved this amazing temple. The amazing stone work, it is truly beautiful.
  • Wonderful historical place
