We spent a the better part of a day exploring these ancient tombs. It was a fascinating place and we loved being able to actually walk through the tombs and climb through tiny apertures etc. There are easier areas for less nimble people. Take lots of water to drink!

Not really a tomb of kings we was disappointed. I love history and I found this to be poor I think when you give a sight as some place to visit it should have what you call it.

A very interesting day out with lots to explore! It can get very hot when looking around so make sure you take plenty to drink with you. It only costs 2.50 euro which is very good value for money. It takes about 1 hr to look around dependent on how much you want to explore. Very interesting to explore all... More

An interesting hour roaming the ruins. Reasonably priced but guide books extra. Very hot but some great views thrown in as well.

The site is advertised as the Tombs of the Kings, however no Kings are or have actually been buried there. It is not until you have paid for your ticket and entered the site that you are informed by the first information board that the site was used for the burial of the rich and not as advertised, Kings. Having... More

I was expecting so much more from the Tombs of kings, the tombs are only from high office people and not kings, there is a lot of modern concrete that has been used to make it look more pleasing to the eye, I would have sooner seen it in its natural state.

Alright, they had to call it something and although The Tombs of the Kings is very definitely a misnomer, the burial sites are very impressive. My first visit here was in 1974, as I was a serving soldier as part of the UN Peace Keeping Force just after the invasion. Our visit was a bit of R&R in Pahpos for... More

Spent a wee while visiting this interesting site. Plenty to see if you are into historical facts etc. Entry fee was €2•50. Best wear comfortable footwear, that can take a bit of wandering around rocks! I'm not sure if I would recommend for very young children,only from the point of view of very little shade if going during the day.... More

Tomb of the Kings is an intresting place with lots to look at! There is lots of tombs to look round with scripts telling us about the site and the type of people entombed there. It's is important that on a hot day take plenty of water and suncream and hats, there is not much shade other than when you... More
