No shade while walking the Valley of the Kings so bring water, sunscreen, hats and wear long sleeves. The staff if friendly and helpful. Step back in time, and enjoy this wonderful historic site

The enigmatic Valley of the Kings houses the tombs of most of the pharaohs of Egypt 's New Kingdom. These tombs should be revered but all to often they are not. If you have a feeling for these things, then you must go - but try to avoid the masses of irreverent tourists who flow in by the coach load.

Beautiful calligraphy inside the tomb. Its kind of slightly out of the way and one needs to climb some steps to get in, but its been made exactly like something from Raiders of the lost Ark, with a mid level dark pit in the middle of the causeway.. Just intriguing

Despite it's in a far and very tiring place (walking in the sun between the mountains is really exhausting ) yet once you start visiting the tombs, there is no more pain or tired or anything; you could only feel amazed by that beauty. Amazing designs and drawings telling different stories for each of the kings; but the most amazing... More

Let me tell you this place needs atleast one full day to explore. Regular tours will not allow that much time for the tourists to do so. Visiting King Seti's tomb is perhaps the most expensive entrance ticket one will spend in the entire Egyptian trip but it would be an experience of the lifetime. King Tut's tomb is not... More

While the regular ticket allows entrance to 3 tombs, you can but a second ticket to see more. Not all tombs are open all the time as they are trying to preserve them. 3 tombs require additional tickets - King Tut, Ramses IV and Seti. I did got into Merenptah, Siptah, Tausert Selnakht, Tut, Ramses IX, VI, and IV. Pretty... More

The day trip from Cairo to Luxor to visit the Balley of the Kings was well worth it. We hired a taxi who in turn provided a guide that he added was awesome. Not sure everyone will have the same outstanding experience from and impromptu trip. Our Egyptology student tour guide was great. Seeing King Tut in his actual tomb... More

There is lots to see at this site. We did not have enough time to see all the treasures of the valley of the kings. Be prepared to walk a lot and have lots of water with you. Very fascinating place. A MUST to visit site in Luxor
