Despite it's in a far and very tiring place (walking in the sun between the mountains is really exhausting ) yet once you start visiting the tombs, there is no more pain or tired or anything; you could only feel amazed by that beauty. Amazing designs and drawings telling different stories for each of the kings; but the most amazing... More

Let me tell you this place needs atleast one full day to explore. Regular tours will not allow that much time for the tourists to do so. Visiting King Seti's tomb is perhaps the most expensive entrance ticket one will spend in the entire Egyptian trip but it would be an experience of the lifetime. King Tut's tomb is not... More

While the regular ticket allows entrance to 3 tombs, you can but a second ticket to see more. Not all tombs are open all the time as they are trying to preserve them. 3 tombs require additional tickets - King Tut, Ramses IV and Seti. I did got into Merenptah, Siptah, Tausert Selnakht, Tut, Ramses IX, VI, and IV. Pretty... More

The day trip from Cairo to Luxor to visit the Balley of the Kings was well worth it. We hired a taxi who in turn provided a guide that he added was awesome. Not sure everyone will have the same outstanding experience from and impromptu trip. Our Egyptology student tour guide was great. Seeing King Tut in his actual tomb... More

There is lots to see at this site. We did not have enough time to see all the treasures of the valley of the kings. Be prepared to walk a lot and have lots of water with you. Very fascinating place. A MUST to visit site in Luxor

The 100 EGP admission ticket is good for visiting any three tombs. The tomb of Tutankhamun is an extra 100 EGP. Ensure that you don’t lose your admission ticket since it is needed to be hole-punched when visiting a tomb. From the parking lot, you pass by vendors before entering the Visitor’s Centre. Soft drinks and ice cream can be... More

You can't photograph these tombs anymore, so you need to see them in person. The colors remaining are wonderful. The artwork of the hieroglyphs is truly remarkable. There are several tombs to see. I saw Rameses IV, VI, and IX. Each was a treasure.

We went without a tour guide which was just fine, just took us a bit to understand everything you actually have to buy. You have to buy the main entrance ticket, the special tickets to see Tut and I forget the other one (ha) then you have to buy the train tickets that take you up (you can walk if... More

The tombs are closer than I had imagined. Entry price gave you 3 tombs to visit. The first two we visited were not that deep into the valley walls, the third was a steep incline down and not easy for me with walking difficulties. The interiors are very similar as the tomb builders followed a formulaic plan. On entry you... More
