I visited the Valley as part of a VIP tour and it made it that extra bit special. Being a geek all things ancient Egypt, it was a battle of knowledge with the tour guide but he was a good sport. The place is baking hot however in the morning, day or evening so make sure you are protected, plenty... More

Great experience for all the family, but exhausting, it is a long day if you do te usual tour, starting off at about 5 from your hotel. Great historical experience, I thought I would be bored but found it fascinating. Take water with you and a head covering as the sun is intense beating down on you when you come... More

We did a tour through our hostel (Bob Marley Peace Hostel) to Medinat Habu, Valley of the Kings, and Temple of Hatshepsut for only 50pounds each. The Valley is fantastic. As I walked around temples I thought, "It had to be amazing to see these in color." Then you go to the valley and you see things in color. Absolutely... More

We booked a tour that also led us here. It was just inside the graves, look and out, no time for asking questions what the drawings inside meant. Though pretty impressive, I didn't like the fact that they didn't credit you more time to take closer looks inside and watch closer to the Details (which would have been pretty interesting)

The valley is probably the most famous site, but as a result we found it very touristy, very busy, and very much degraded by the rounds of treasure-hunters, museum collectors, and tourists. There are definitely still some magnificent murals to see, and the tombs are amazing constructions, but beyond that the tour was more about the stories from the guides... More

Even after visiting this historical area, I still cannot believe I actually entered the tomb of King Tut and gazed in wonder at his mummy which is reverently remaining in his tomb for all eternity. Pinch yourself or else you will think you are dreaming.

A fabulous, must do attraction when visiting Luxor! The guides really know their stuff and the stories are fascinating! I have visited twice and still feel there is more to see and I would definitely visit again. Tip... a bottle of water is essential as it is so hot in the tombs.

Of course Egypt in general is worth seeing, but I really liked the Valley of the Kings the most. It is so mysterious, I find it intriguing that they have not yet come to discover all of the tombs nor all of the caves and it was beautiful and fascinating to see the hieroglyphs.
