My husband and I went to Valley of the Whales as part of a tour, don't know if you can get out there any other way. Entry is 14LE each paid by the tour company you travel with. This fee also includes entry to Wadi al Rayan ( a picnic area, near man-made lakes and a waterfall in between) you can have a row boat ride for a small fee. Valley of the Whales is simply superb, beautiful landforms, in a clean pristine environment, the fossilized whales and other marine animals are left insitu on the sand where they were found. UNESCO has done an awesome job making this place both visitor safe and friendly. They have created a 3km circuit walkway which you take to see 13 exhibits of fossil remains. This is a site not to be missed, allow one day for this amazing place. Be aware this is 60kms from the Fayoum into the desert so its not within walking distance. Toilets and cafe/shop are onsite near the visitor centre. We camped overnight as part of our tour. You'll love it.
