To stand in the same spot of Howard Carter and try to understand what he must have felt was brilliant to say the least very unassuming place until you enter the tombs then you get the real picture of why they are so important

It is incredible how well preserved it is. Surely needs your visit! Also you can make a balloon ride on the top of the Valleys. It is magical.

This is why you came to Egypt, one of it's most fascinating stops. Your first ticket only gets you into 3 tombs. Take your time - buy extra tickets - go into as many of the tombs as you can. Your guide might rush you a bit to get you off to the next sights, but few other places in... More

You have to see for yourself... A sense of awe and gloriousness when you enter the Valley of the Kings... Visited the tomb of Ramses IV, ( KV 2 ), Thutmosis III ( KV 34 ) and Tausert ( KV 14 ) and of course the tomb of Tutankhamon which was extra. The mountain is so majestic, imposing and mysterious...

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.

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.
