very much the same as king tut,but longer, makes you think though who was this tomb made for. For King tutankarmun or for himself.

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

Although not on the normal excursion list, the Tomb of Ay is a must. It is hidden away along a long path from the valley of the Kings carpark. If you visit you will certainly be the only tourists there. The tomb itself is down 2 sets of steep steps but wow what a surprise when you get to the... More

The Tomb of Ay is separate to the main tombs in the Kings Valley. You need to purchase a separate ticket at the KV ticket office. You reach the tomb by a dirt road to the right of the KV entrance. This is one of the most beautiful tombs in the valley. It is small, only 2 chambers, but the... More

Tickets from the Valley of the Kings Ticket Office then car up to the valley (unless you are fit enough to walk!). Guardian is collected en route and he will open the tomb and give you as much time as possible. But the utter, utter peace of the valley is wonderful. Complete silence which is difficult to comprehend in this... More

Situated in a valley adjacent to the Valley of the Kings this is a very small tomb with a steep entrance (several sets of steps and ramps), but the small effort required is worth it for the commited egyptophile. The paintings that remain are fresh and well colloured. The entrance ticket has to be bought at the Kings Valley ticket... More

For the sake of a few British pounds you can visit the tomb of Ay and it really is worth it. This was my fifth visit to the valley but my first to this tomb and even though the entrance/exit steps are numerous and steep its worth the effort, take your time with this tomb as its highly unlikely that...

Well what can I say, this tomb is seldom visited and it is such a pitty. You get an extra ticket at the V of the Kings and take a small taxi ride off a road neer the V of the Kings to pick up the caretaker. It has to be one of the best kept secrets, and most of... More
