Loved it!
Sep 2021
I went to several archaeological sites on Cyprus. They were all good in their own way but this was the best. Freedom to walk about the tombs unhindered meant I had my own little Lara Croft adventure, I suppose the lads would say Indiana Jones :) Visiting these site on Cyprus is so cheap as well, only EU4.50 each or 2.50 for seniors. It is spread over a large area and many spots have steep steps but even with limited mobility you can still see a lot. Take a bottle of water with you as there is no cafe and it does get hot of course.

Worth the entry fee
Oct 2021 • Couples
Visited here last weekend. Standard 2.5 euros each entry fee. Wear sensible shoes as it’s uneven and rocky. Worth a visit but agree with other reviews that more signage is needed. Miserable staff at the ticket office. Easy to get here it’s on the main 615 bus route which runs from the harbour to coral bay. Bus fare 1.5 euros each

Review Tomb Of The Kings
Sep 2021
We’ve been to the Tomb of the kings in the beginning of September. We’ve paid 4,5euros to get inside the park. Tomb of the kings is really a must see if you are in Paphos. You can enter every tomb and enjoy the tombs interior. All tombs have there own specific beauty so take your time to walk the park. The biggest downside of the park is that some of the information panels were broken, so you couldn’t read the text on it.
Overall it was a very nice park. If you like to see some of the nicest preserved tombs in Cyprus you need to visit this park.

Worth a visit
Sep 2021 • Couples
My partner and I enjoyed this but it definitely needs signs and/or a map with the ticket. We nearly missed out 2 of the best tombs due to lack of signage. You definitely need to take water as it's very hot and the only shelter is in the tombs.

Good place to visit to pass some time
Sep 2021
I took a short walk from my hotel to this site, although plenty of parking is available and bus stop outside. I visited late Saturday morning and my 2 hours visit was good value for the 2:50 euros entry fee. Guidebook is an extra 4 euros. Very little shade so recommend taking a good sized bottle of water. Very interesting place to visit if you are in to historical sites. Possible to access many of the tombs by steps. Not sure what I was expecting on arrival, but I had a pleasant visit. It did not take my breath away, but well worth a visit for the small entrance fee.

Exceeded Expectations
Aug 2021 • Couples
I was not sure what to expect from Tomb of the Kings, but was pleasantly surprised. We only stayed and hour because it was too hot out to keep walking around, but could have stayed for 2 to see everything. The site is expansive with lots of ruins and tombs to wander through. There was not a clear map to follow so I am sure we missed some sites, but do not miss Tomb 3 and 4. They are amazing and you can walk into a lot of the underground tombs to explore! Just try and go first thing in the morning because the heat makes it difficult to enjoy fully.

Humid stroll through interesting tombs
Sep 2021
Worth the visit. Go early or later in the day to avoid the heat and heavy humidity which can be hefty. The site is larger than expected and the views of the sea are a welcome contrast to the burrowed tombs. Plan to walk around, up and down into the excavations. And to sweat a bit. Visitors have created a separate attraction of stacked stones that are impressive on their own mainly because there are so many of them.

A must see
Aug 2021
We visited in August, bring water as its very hot. One can appreciate these as they are Hellenistic. A must see when in Paphos.

Hot and Dusty.

Great place to visit for a few hours. No evidence of any kings but lots of Tombs to see and the sea views are splendid. Take water in with you.
