Incredible trip, go now while visitor numbers are low. Your ticket includes three tombs so have a good look around or research before hand to make the best of your trip.
This place is bananas. Back at home now I think I am still overwhelmed by this place. it's just.... nuts. Our driver took us on a tour of various sites starting with this one. The approach to the site through winding roads in the desert builds the anticipation - and once you get into the tombs, I mean... really nothing... More
We left at 7.30 but even then it was very hot! We went into four tombs in all and were amazed by the lack of tourists.Fine for us but so sad for the local people. The wall paintings are breathtaking. Some of the tombs are quite steep so we walked quickly downhill to the end and then walked up very... More
The care with which these tombs have been conserved is a credit to the country. Well maintained and easy to access. Good information and the visitor centre makes it easy to see how each tomb is positioned under the ground. Most enjoyable visit for an Egyptian history fan.
We visited the valley of the kings on a sunny february morning. There were very few tourists there so it was lovely not to be on a "conveyor like" process to view the sights.

We visited the Valley last week as independent travellers;... More

For those interested in coming to Luxor, with new Egyptian regulations, your guide is unable to do touring inside the tombs as the moisture on their breath decays the tombs. In addition, you are unable to bring your cameras... More
This is a very well kept piece of history. Watch out for the street vendors though. Your best bet is to visit this as part of a guided tour. You are not allowed to take photo's here so take sneaky shots with your phone. The proximity of the tombs to each other is amazing. I't suprising that they all too... More
My sister and I visited the Valley of the Kings with our tour guide and he chose 3 tombs to visit. He spoke about each tomb (and the individual pharaohs outside the tomb) and he allowed us to go in the tombs and look around until we were finished. We visited the tombs of Ramses IV, Ramses IX, and the... More
