“High Level of Detail”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

The ancient nobles of Egypt also demanded highly detailed decorations on the walls of their tombs. It should be noted though that, like with the Pharaos, if the Noble died before his tomb was finished, no more work was carried out, as his descendants, most commonly looked out for themselves! Two or three tombs astounding to view. Take a good guide to bring the whole place to life (or death for that matter!).

“nobles tombs”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

to visit these tombs you need a guide and a driver, they are well
worth the heat and discomfort, the paintings on the walls are not
the usual battle scenes of the pharoes, but of artisans working and family groups going about their daily lives. do not be put off
going on your own it is not expensive and the guides explain
everything to you. a really great visit

“most impressive site around Luxor”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

With much less visitors than valley of kings, one can visit here more freely and take photos (no flash of course) from vibrant colours kept alive. Visiting this site gives the impression of being an explorator, not just a commercial tourist like in the valley of kings.

“Marvellous”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Never gets boaring for adults or children to touch and feel these artifacts and places in Egypt. Enjoy, take your time, take plenty of water and head cover... take lots of pictures. best in early morning or late evening....

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

This is not a venue on many tour operators itinerary but it is well worth a visit. We had not visited this site until our 3rd visit to Egypt.
