When entering a tomb its like entering a hidden under-ground palace with amazing history. We booked our tour thru the American Express. Bob, our tour guide was an expert in his field, plus he loves his homeland and history.

This is a very cool place to visit while in Luxor. It is very hot though and i suggest brining water with you.

Truly an amazing place. After you buy tickets, you'll then get very low-priced tickets to ride a little cart-trailer to get from the entrance to where the tombs are. There were many pharaonic kings, queens, and other royals buried here and, when I visited, you could see up to 4 tombs. Visiting King Tut's Tomb was the equivalent of about... More

The valley is populated by tourists, but a shuttle brings visitors to the tombs which are open. The tombs are closer together than I thought they would be. The tomb of Ramses IX has so much oriignal painted detail is is jaw-dropping. the tomb of Tutenkahmen is underwhelming by comparison, but it is not nearly as large. It was still... More

Awesome things to see. Take a guide with you who will make sure you only access the tombs that have things to see. Great paintings and well preserved.

I knew this place would be fantastic but it exceeded all expectations. Take the time to go into the tombs, add the extra fee for Ramses. It truly was the highlight of my 3 week adventure

The tombs at the valley of the kings are AMAZING, however, they are somewhat strict about photography and ask to check your phone....I refused to tip the security guards and refused to show them my phone and was able to sneak some photos in. After a while all of the tombs begin to look the same. I did not go... More

lley of the Kings, Arabic Wādī Al-Mulūk, also called Valley of the Tombs of the Kings or Arabic Wādī Bībān al-Mulūk, long narrow defile just west of the Nile River in Upper Egypt. It was part of the ancient city of Thebes and was the burial site of almost all the kings (pharaohs) of the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties... More

No cameras allowed so all you have is your memory, it's how they get you to buy the CD. Make sure you bring some water, the ticket gets you into 3 tombs, there is a separate ticket for King Tut... Research what tombs you would like to see because the guides will try and hurry you..
