I had always promised myself that I would visit here and I certainly wasn't disappointed I had booked a trip to the valley of the kings before I left Ireland and knew that it would be a really early pick up from the hotel. So we left before dawn due to the heat and headed by bus for the trip......if... More

You can't miss the tombs in Valley of the Kings--stunning how well-preserved the inscriptions (art, hieroglyphs, etc) are on the inside. You can't take photos inside, but it's a feast for the eyes!

This is an incredible site with tombs of many kings. The history and buildings underground are breathtaking. Paintings, sculpture adorn each tomb with king's history and afterlife. Some tombs need walking in steep stairs. This is an incredible experience to be in the tombs of great ancient kings who personally supervised their construction.

These are the burial places for ancient Egyptian royal men. Many of these places are hidden in the valley, but only few are kept open for visitors.

Loved this place. Only one thing what's make our visit harder was 47 degrees so I would not recommend to visit this place in July as we did. But be prepared to hide your phone but never be scared to take some pics even they do not allow it at all.

When you go to the Valley of Kings, you think you will see some tombs and that's it. But what you will feel there is unbelievable! It's a very organized place. Unlike Karnak temple we didn't see anybody who wanted to cheat on us. There was an old man, the guard, who has organized a small tour for us and... More

It was amazing to walk amongst the burial sites of old kings. Exploring inside a number of them was definitely worth the trip.

This tomb has early hieroglyphics, it's amazing to view the Pharaohs travels throughout the night, beating all that try to stop his journey towards the morning. Every hour of his nighttime journey is documented on the walls. Go see, and travel the hours with Thutmoses III.

Basically to inform you all of a scam there. Fortunately we didn't get into it. The ticket is for only three tombs. As you enter, one of the caretakers will entice you to enter the nearest tombs for 10 LE. He also offers to take snaps from your mobile which is prohibited. After you take snaps and go to other...
