If you wish to see the Tomb of Tutmosis III, prepare to walk lots of stairs up and down, but its worth it! I haven't seen the Tomb of Seti I (which is now open at the price of 1000EGP), but I heard that the tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens (at the same price) is more... More

Just go there. Your mind will be blown. Nothing else needs to be said. Even though I'm being forced to say 100 characters. Truly amazing. You can't take pics. Literally one of the most incredible places I've seen.

this is a mandatory travel for those who are in Luxor Area. If you are in Luxor city, you have to hire a transportation to get there, because it is on the other side of Nile River. But the place is fantastic, better yet if you manage to enter in one of the tombs

Highlight of our trip! The 100 LE entry ticket allows you to see 3 tombs, but they are nothing compared to the Seti tomb which cost an additional 1000 LE. The price is steep but definitely worth it!

Visited the valley of the kings whilst visiting the Karnak Temple in Luxor. The visit was a bit anti climax as the expectaion was of a majestic site of antiquity where as in relaity it is a valley in the desert close to Luxor. In the time of Pharohs it was probably inaccessible in the hostile desert to save the... More

A stunning location that conceals the astounding beauty of the tombs here. The tomb of Ramses lv and Tuthmosis lll are amazing. If you are on your own, a little bakeesh to the gentleman running the camera check in will allow you to keep your camera. You are allowed to visit three tombs, and I suggest listening to the advice... More

I must first say that we visited in January, when the weather was nice and warm - not hot. Having such nice weather allowed us to have a lazy walk around the valley, which in it of itself was amazing. I don't know what it was about this valley but I fell in love with my surroundings. All the tombs... More
