This is the place where Howard Carter lived whilst working in the Valley of the Kings. We had the house to ourselves, which was brilliant. Filled with lots of artefacts

Our kind tour leader "Adel" took us to this site as a surprising gift and it was really surprising! Hard to believe the place that Howard Carter used to work in for years to unlock mystery of Tutankhamun's tomb is now part of history itself....More

While your doing the tombs and temples close by may as well see it,, he did find a lot of things so nice to see his office, photo room, pictures etc, wont take long but good to complete the tour

Going into this house gives one the strange feeling that he is still there, everything is virtually left as it was, see his hat, his tools, how he cooked, where he wrote, feel the atmosphere of the early 20th century in this house

The house is worth a visit , it has a very Victorian feel about it. It has in the grounds an exact replica of Tutankhamen Tomb which is worth a visit.

I have always wanted to go to the house and had the chance with a wonderful travel agent called Jolley’s just down from the Winter palace. Fantastic array of photos. The 3d replica of Kings Tuts tombs is a really good idea.

Sat in Howard Carter's chair, sitting at his desk, wearing his hat...spooky! Seriously though, it really is a fascinating look back into the past of 100 years ago.

It is full of Howard Cater's furniture. Sit at his desk, try out his fly whisk and hat! I read somewhere in my guide book that the cafe here is excellent but expensive - when was that? It is almost non-existant, cheap and awful when...More

difficult to be specific. I guess some of the furniture was included already in the house, so would probably be local, or purchased by him when he moved in, but there's so much stuff that is definitely his; cases, cameras... More

2 days is not very long to spend in Luxor,but even so you should be able to see the VOK and Karnak and Luxor temple. There are buses to Luxor from Hurghada ,but quite a long journey,but I believe flights are available too.

It really depends on how you get to Luxor and who helps you when you are there. If you are on your own, you can simply take a taxi there. Ask them to stop at the ticket kiosk to get your tickets ahead of time. If you are... More
