the tombs were all-round fantastic. as a kid, one of the places i had always dreamed of visiting was egypt, and the place certainly lived up to its hype. the only irritation - as with all popular tourist destinations - were the sheer numbers of hawkers, like horse-carriage drivers that hounded us. fun experience though!

the tomb itself is nice but we found inside a working site (they are probably doing something with the lights, we don't know) so all the magic was gone.... Too bad, if we had known about it, we'd have probably skipped it for next time...

It,s a must to see the tomb, all tombs are different and it is interesting to hear the history of RamsesV1 from the guide.

Visited here at the beginning of June as part of a private tour. We were allowed in three tombs, i would have liked more but they need to close some of them to protect the designs inside (so our tour guide says!) Our guide explained alot about the history of the tombs but wasnt allowed to come inside with us.... More

I was surprised seeing the beautiful designs and the mix in color. I was expecting more explanations from our guide but i notice all the guides didn't enter the tomb , they give us some explanations and let us take some times to visit.
