need to be fit for this one

spent an extremely pleasant afternoon but could only view 2 tombs as not able to manage the deeper tombs as not fit enough. Would still not have missed going though.

This is a MUST VISIT place for anyone who can. So much history that is so well preserved. No pictures but it is so memorable you don't need pics.

We got a private taxi to Luxor at 120 English pounds. His name is Mohammed. Will put a number up at some point. He stayed with us the whole day pointing out different things to us. The valley of the kings was amazing to see though you only get to see three tombs and have to pay extra for Tutankhamen... More

Okay, no part of me is discontent with what the site has to offer. Seriously, the valley of Kings is a great site and certainly worth a visit (wear a hat and bring sunglasses). The site is quite remote (we took a taxi) and hence not really easily reached. The hassle of the dealing with the locals is what bummed... More

Be prepared because you can't take pictures but what you will see you will remember forever. These tombs have been around for thousands of years and you can't help but wonder how they survived all these years.

Valley of the Kings is the place where the Kings were buried, and now the tombs after excavation, have been opened to the public for visit. It is not easy getting in these tombs, and if one is claustrophobic, some of the difficult tombs can be avoided. Ask the guide to take you to easily accessible tombs. Definitely worth a... More

This is a must do and totally different than all the temples. Colors are great and seeing the whole complex and style fascinating.

Very very interesting. You buy a ticket for 3 tombs and choose the ones you wish to check out. Obviously King Tuts is a must. You pay an extra £10 Egyptian for this. You just have to. Why come all this way and not see the most famous. You have to be fit. A lot of steps and bending through... More

Any of the tombs are amazing. Each one is distinct and different, the entrances originally hidden in the sides of the cliffs. Many are challenging, with step steps up and down, but all are worth it. Keep in mind that each tomb takes at least 30 minute to an hour to visit, so purchase tickets judiciously.

Visit the Tomb of Aye. It is mind blowing but difficult to get to see. Make arrangements with a good taxi driver on the West Bank and get the Ticket from the Valley of the Kings ticket office
