I toured the Valley of Kings in March of 2009. I toured the Valley of the Kings in the morning, first thing as they opened. It was a great time to go, it was not very crowded. I did not tour KingTuts tomb when I was there, my wife was not with me because she had to work, and we... More

I went in the morning. The temperature was 103F degrees. I had a personal guide who was excellent at explaining what I would see. He did not go into the tombs with me. I observed what he had shared. I gained a deeper respect for the men and women who preserved those tombs. I only visited 3 out of the... More

The most famous spot in Luxor. I believe no one would miss this place out. You must go there, and look around and feel the ancient Egypt. Bring some water, and prepare extra battery for the picture.

Was very interesting. However, our tour guide cut our trip short and only let us see three of the tombs.

The royal tombs are decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology and give clues to the beliefs and funerary rituals of the period. Almost all of the tombs seem to have been opened and robbed in antiquity, but they still give an idea of the opulence and power of the Pharaohs.In modern times the valley has become famous for the discovery...

Ok, so you're not allowed to take photos. But it's WORTH it. And if you go in summer, as I did, you'll be so relieved by the temperature drop within the tombs. Oh... Tut's tomb is very small and has nothing inside, so you may not wanna go. I paid the extra $20-$25 (I think) just cuz it's such an... More
