The Valley of The Kong's is definitely worth visiting if you are in Luxor. It is amazing and gives great insight into the ancient Egyptians and the afterlife. So much history! The weather in January was perfect, 70 degrees with a light breeze.

Seeing three tombs with the basic ticket is great, but if you can afford it visiting some of the extra tombs is very much worth it!

The valley of the kings is majestic as it is amazing. There are various tombs and some of them are well preserved considering that they date thousands of years ago. An amazing lesson in History. Just owed by the civilization so many years ago!
