travelled last year and was overcome with emotion in this fantastic place. So much history and awe inspiring. Go early in the day as it gets so hot. If there is anywhere in the world you must visit is the valley of the kings and all it has to offer.

Its a must to wear comfortable shoes to walk and climb rocky floors and caves. Its advisable to have head caps and a bunch of sun screen for skin protection as it is an open site.

Loved this experience! Took a nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor and the visit here was included. Such an incredible place full of history. Pay for the extra to see Tutankhamun's tomb. It is small, but after hearing so many stories, it was amazing to be standing inside.

I was a bit hesitant about going that far down inside a tomb but the first few steps inside the beautiful art took my breath away.. Beautiful depiction of the Book of the Dead on the walls all they way in. A must see in the Valley.

Amazing history and the detail inside the tombs is mind blowing. worth reading up on the history first. Tut an khamen's tomb costs extra to visit (£10?) but is less spectacular as he died so young, but they have returned him to his final resting place, so worth a visit as such an important part of the history. There are... More

You can not visit Egypt without seeing the valley of the Kings a truly amazing sight. Take lots of water, a hat and sun screen, as most of the time it's blazing hot. Take the services of amazing day good tour guide , it adds so much to the experience.

What can you say. You have to visit to understand what it is. You take your car or bus winding into the hidden valley. The entry has a large room with a model of all the tombs in three dimensions so that you can really see how much work each involved. They only let us see three of tombs as... More

Too large to examine every tomb but the guide will explain which are the most interesting. I was fascinated by so many pictures and the stories they tell of the after life.

Be prepared with plenty of sun block and water when going to the Valley of the Kings. It is hot and the sun blazes down on you so plenty of protection is needed. However, Egypt was an absolutely incredible destination and, for me, was simply mystical. The entire country is alive with history.
