This tomb is located away from the main Valley of the Kings tombs. We visited as part of a private tour as I have a specific interest in this period of Egyptian history. A fabulous tomb with Sarcophagus in situ and typical Armana period tomb art. If not too hot you could walk from the ticket office but when we... More

The tomb of Ay at the end of the valley is not exceptional, but the walk through the valley is superb: beautiful and quiet.

This is a little Tomb, adjacent to the Valley of the Kings but, because it involves a long walk is seldom visited - perhaps 20 people per day maximum. You can drive there by Taxi on a dirt road and such is well recommended. Very well adorned and not too difficult to access - well worth it.

If you go to the King Valley, visit also the Tomb of Ay, that is in a separate valley (that starts on the right of the ticket office for the King Valley), with a nice view (and no turists!!). We reached the tomb by bicycle (10-15 minutes from the main street). The quiet place with the rock landscape are peculiar,... More

If you go to the trouble of visiting the Valley of the Kings on the west bank of the Nile at Luxor I thoroughly advise you go that extra few steps and take a taxi ride, or indeed a walk for the more adventurous to the western valley and the tomb of Ay. This part of the valley is infrequently... More

The tomb is a delight and the paintings are generally fresh and clear, especially the 12 baboon hours. Even though it is rarely opened, the air is fresh and it was very cool. Entry is by stairs and ramps, so it is a fairly strenuous climb. The guardian and the tomb "Egyptologist" said nobody had visited it for several weeks.... More

The tomb is not located with the other tombs in the valley. As you approach the main entrance the tomb is to the right along a very bumpy road. You buy your ticket at the exhibition centre which I think was about LE80 (£8) and then follow the path all the way up a hill to the enterence to the... More

Ay tomb is in the Valley of the Monkeys right next to the Kings Valley. There are only two tombs in this valley. Please don't be Persuaded to go to it by taxi, you can walk there giving you the chance to view one of the best valleys in Luxor, the views are stunning with amazing rock structors. This is... More
