Extraordinary sites. You ll be amazed about every tomb. The atmosphere is so touching. You feel something of the authentic Faraon times...I had this feeling here!... Strongly RECOMMEND this visit, even just the main 3 tombs worthing all efforts to be here :-)

Ragab is incredibly knowledgeable and made the visit very interesting. He also allowed us to explore some on our own. His driver, Sayeed was also very pleasant. I would recommend Ragab and Luxor Travels to anyone traveling to Egypt.

Valley of the Kings is a must see on any trip to Luxor. Best to book with a local guide and not through a hotel. I travelled there solo, the tombs are well preserved. I recommend paying the extra for the ability to take pictures...More

This is a museum. Some tombs are better than others, but it is amazing to go in and see. You have to pay to take pictures, but the minor inconvenience does not diminish how awesome it is to be somewhere created thousands of years ago.

Interesting system where you can only enter a certain number of tombs on your ticket, but you choose which ones. Tip: ask one of the guards or staff to help you choose which tombs, they can tailor to your preference. Worth going to a less...More

I don't believe pets are allowed in the archeological site. Even if they were, I would not recommend taking a dog to the Valley of the Kings. First, each archeological site (tomb) is being carefully managed to preserve the... More
