If you are going here, arrive early! By 8.30 the place was starting to fill up with coaches. I think the ticket office opens at 6AM. There is a complete ban on photo's in the valley, other than the car park. The paintings are quite spectacular and the colours (even down to the Greek christian graffiti) beautiful after over 3000 years. The differences between the tombs of rulers with a short reign and long reign is very noticable. The sheer detail the Egyptians managed in the imagery, when they had time, is incredible. It's also noticable how the overall artistic style changed hardly at all over the 1000 year period these tombs cover. So overall, worth going but be aware you can't take pictures so the memories will be private.
