It gets hot hot hot!! So go as early as possible. The ticket gives you access to 3 tombs our guide who is an Egyptologist suggested KV 8 KV 38 and KV 47. You can also pay to see king Tut. It's mostly just his mummy and sarcophagus. Everything else has been removed and put into the Egyptian museum in... More

Went to valley of the King's with a tour guide. It was definitely bigger than I expected. Entrance fee allows you to see 3 tombs. Pretty cool! But some tombs have lots of stairs and it gets pretty hot. Prepare to break a sweat!

Good grief.... It's flipping warm. You need to go before it gets too hot. Get up really early, take some scarf or a hat. Also, take a couple of girlfriends. I could have traded mine for a couple of hundred camels. 😉

The valley houses tombs of 63 pharaohs but our tickets allowed us to visit only 3 of them. It's important to have a good tour guide else all the historical details and the trivia would be missed. There are small golf cart type vehicles called Taf-taf that took us from the entrance to the tombs. The 3 tombs we visited... More

The place where Egyptian royalty now rests. The Valley has over 60 tombs; an entry ticket gives you entry to any 3 and there are several tombs such as that of Tut that require an additional payment. Choose wisely!

This is a must if you are in Luxor, or anywhere in Egypt. This is an amazing part of history that can't be missed. Try to go early so you can beat the heat. It's worth it to pay a little extra to visit King Tut's tomb and see his body. Although cameras aren't allowed, this is Egypt, and every... More

No visit to Luxor would be worth it without a trip to the VOK. Tombs are amazing and really give an idea of ancient Egyptian history. The tomb of Horemheb is especially worth a visit. Make sure that you take water though, it does get a bit warm.

This was a must see as part of holiday, we visited as part of a guided tour, it certainly has that wow factor, the painting in the tombs are stunning. We had the option of visiting 2 tombs as part of our entry fee with the option of paying around £8 uk or £100le for a third tomb, we chose... More

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
