After the Great Pyramids were built and looted, the later pharaohs decided on being a little sneaky by hiding their tombs. Unfortunately that did not prevent them from being looted as well. It did, however, allow for many tombs to be built in a very small area.
Typically you are given a period of time to visit your pick of three different tombs in an allotted amount of time before meeting to board your bus for the next portion of your tour. They are all different and well worth the time you have to explore the buried structures. It is a shame to be rushed after traveling such a long distance for a visit, but this is often the case.
A tip concerning the tourist starved merchants who will hound you enough to almost ruin your visit...Don't speak to them or make eye contact. As our guide suggested, "walk like the camel in the desert and be aware of all that is around you, without looking at anyone."
