Inside the tombs so much has been preserved. A trip to Luxor wouldn't be complete without seeing it. Cons - You can't take pictures. The guards inside try to shake you down for money. They try to act as tour guides then ask to be paid. If you don't let them act as tour guides, when you leave they just... More

Definitely read up and choose the tombs you want to go to beforehand. I made the mistake of following the advice of the ticket seller and changed one of my choices and ended up regretting it. Best to get there by taxi. Do not get there by minibus as there is a long walk after getting off. Like everywhere else,... More

Another must see place if you go to Egypt. It's amazing how they managed to build these tunnels considering they only had hand tools. The extra money required to see tut's buried chamber was a little steep especially when all the items he was buried with are in the Cairo museum. Even so it's a must see site.

The whole Valley of the Kings is overwhelming. Highlights have to be tombs of Tut & Rameses V/VI. One has very little symbols on the wall others contain a living history

The valley of the Kings is a must when your in Luxor. Wear comfortable shoes and make sure you have a hat and water there is very little shade. The tombs are all very much the same so you don't have to over do it . But it is well worth going to see the valley of the Kings

Go early to see these wondrous tombs before it gets uncomfortably hot. For the entry price,you get to see 3 tombs,but you can pay extra to visit Tutankhamen's tomb and some others. One of the one's I visited was Horemheb's which is absolutely STUNNING! Probably the best there. The colours are extraordinary. Be aware that some of the tombs are... More

comparing other monuments in Egypt this important from the point of of history not the architectural values. Must seen by the people who are interest in listening to stories of kings and queen ruled egypt told by your guides.

Took a taxi from the East bank, 100LE return, to arrive at 7am. Drive is about 30 minutes one-way from the Luxor Temple area. Looking for a safe, honest driver who was wonderful with our three children call Waleed at (002)010-609-009-47. We did a self-guided tour of the Valley, no hassle at all from want to be guides.
