Really large site, easily could of spent hours there. It really is beautiful and visitors have complete access to everything! It is a shame not more is known but it's really is worth the visit!

My wife and I went there this week and although no allowance has been made for the disabled it is possible to get round the site. But it is not possible to get into any of the tombs as none of them have any attempt at being accessible in a wheelchair..Also be aware the toilets are not accessible unless you... More

the history here is intriguing, but left mainly to your imagination. As others have posted, does not come with much instructional pamphlets. Many of the 'tombs' are still in situ. Nevertheless, it's interesting to visit as the sea front and surrounding hills are really lovely.

This really is not worth the visit. As already said, looks just like a load of rubble. Sorry if I am being rather ignorant but having visited other more famous ruins, this really was not up to much. Don't bother .....

Quite amazing underground tombs fairly recently renovated but the whole site does need tidying up and more details in English provided. The site covers quite a lot of ground and good walking shoes are recommended.

They say it is the tomb of the kings but in reallity it is possible graves of the people that lived in the area millenia ago and could of been anyone and not kings. It... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the tombs. I felt a little like Indy and managed to investigate as many small spaces as possible (safely) The site was a bit windswept on the day we visited but I expect it would be very hot in summer. I never fail to be surprised at the low cost of visiting places like this... More

the area contains a number of tombs used to entomb the nobility. it makes for a pleasant walk for an hour but its nothing special compared to the valley of the kings in Luxor
