My first visit to an Egyptian tomb was this one. And it was amazing. When I entered the tomb and saw the images of the young princes and princess buried here it was as if history came alive again. The Valley of the Queens is not often included in tours, but take a trip of your own to make this... More

You can see his white sarcophagus in the burial chamber. Bring water as the prices are high in the sales area just before you... More

The quality of the artwork in this tomb is to a high standard, although some areas have been blacked by smoke due to it once being the residence of a local family. In the areas where the... More
