Had never gotten around to visiting this place but well worth the visit. Better than some tombs in the valley. It's a bit of a climb but persevere not for mobility problems.

Nearly the whole old village of El Quarna has disappeared and the entrances to the many tombes of the nobles, all dating back tot het New Empire, can be seen clearly. Unfortunately only very few are open to the general public. The one best known is Ramose. Partially decorated and only a small part of it is painted: mourning people.... More

A visit to the valley of the nobles is a must . . . such beautiful tombs - some of the best. Quite superb. You cannot take photographs, but perhaps it is best left to memory! So few tourists - a great time to visit!

Much quieter than the major sites this is a Luxor must do! Hotels offer organised trips but I would suggest the public ferry (about 10p each way) and a West Bank taxi driver will charge about 100LE to drive you for a few hours (much less if your bartering is up to standard). Tickets from the ticket office at Medinet... More

If you are an independent traveller without a guide, you will be approached at the entrance by unofficial guides telling you that it is extremely difficult to find the tombs you want to see as there are 400 tombs. Ignore the scare tactics. The tombs are well sign posted and easy to find. Take baksheesh however as the guards keep... More

Much more interesting than most of the Royal tombs which tend to be formulaic. Here, you get a sense of life in Ancient Egypt

Visited here today, had been recommended to visit by a friend, This is a superb location on the West Bank, Luxor. We visited the tombs of Mena & Nakht, I was very impressed by all the detail of every day life depicted on the walls. Liked here much more than the Valley of the Kings. Not so commercial. This is...

We chose to see Nakht (30 LE), Sennofer(40 LE) and Ramose (40 LE), these tombs are grouped with a few others for ticketing purposes... if not part of a tour group research a bit before going so that you know which tickets you want to purchase as you buy them at a ticket office off site located near Medinat Habu....

Though there are some nice tombs to be seen in the Valley of the Nobles, it need not be your first concern. Get your ticket at triple junction at the end of the ferry road (2 km from Nile)
