How long in Abu Simbel?

I am just about to be booki my flights for a trip to Abu Simbel. We will be arriving at about 7.30am - i was wondering would it be enough time to get the 10.30am flight back or should I wait and get the flight at about 13.30? if we left a bit late this would give us time to maybe get some lunch and havea rest before the journey back, but if there is nothing much there we might be better just catching an earlier flight back to Aswan.

The trip to Abu Simbel from the airport is only about 5 mins, each flight gets met by an Egyptair bus. There is nothing else there except the temples and a few tourist shops. In my opinion, an hour & a half is ample time at Abu Simbel, I'd catch the earlier flight.

IS this a duplicate post? Anyway an hour and a half is Ok, two is ample. There is nothing else to do there.
