Less visited tickets are from Luxor temple make sure you get them before going, not often visited by tourists and only 45 minutes drive out of Luxor much older than other tombs you will visit 1st intermediate period

Having been tipped off that this First Intermediate (transitional) period tomb is a must we decided to go for it. Our taxi driver was the same guy we always use and so he was well able to "ease the way" at unusual sites and those which are not open to the public - this tomb definitely fell into that category...

We decided to visit this tomb as our daughter has studied the 1st intermediate period at university and it was a great opportunity to see the real thing. We asked Memphis Tours to arrange a guide (Nabil Garda) and a vehicle; it's about 40 minutes outside Luxor and as previously mentioned you need to buy tickets in advance from Luxor... More

Located about 45 minutes South of Luxor on the road to Esna in the village of El Moalla lies the little visited tombs of Ankhtifi and Sobekhotep. There are no signposts, so some driving around the village may be part of the experience. Don't expect the local guides to know much about them as they fall into the period of... More

I have wanted to visit this site for quite some time, but it's the first time I have been able to go. The tomb of Ankhtifi may be overlooked by many visitors to Egypt, but l would recommend a visit. The tombs are of historical importance and their location is quite unique. I spent about an hour looking at the... More

On 31 December 2012 in the morning, we were the only visitors… In one hand very good so: peaceful, magic, and quiet. Meeting Ankhtifi and Sobekhotep almost personally, talking to us. In the other hand very sad for the locals, that still so very few tourist visit Egypt! These tombs are for sure not the most important tombs in Egypt,... More

It was very worth the journey to find this place. The tombs with drawings and colour are great. Its a good site and plenty to see. Its off the beaten track as you might say but its good to see something diferent.

Some say it's in the village of El -Moalla or El Masah-Id(?? – not sure of spelling) These tombs are not visited much. It can be done, the only drawback is finding people to take you! You must buy the tickets from the Luxor Temple before you go. I would say that you need to be interested in the First... More
