Highlight of our trip! The 100 LE entry ticket allows you to see 3 tombs, but they are nothing compared to the Seti tomb which cost an additional 1000 LE. The price is steep but definitely worth it!

Visited the valley of the kings whilst visiting the Karnak Temple in Luxor. The visit was a bit anti climax as the expectaion was of a majestic site of antiquity where as in relaity it is a valley in the desert close to Luxor. In the time of Pharohs it was probably inaccessible in the hostile desert to save the... More

A stunning location that conceals the astounding beauty of the tombs here. The tomb of Ramses lv and Tuthmosis lll are amazing. If you are on your own, a little bakeesh to the gentleman running the camera check in will allow you to keep your camera. You are allowed to visit three tombs, and I suggest listening to the advice... More

I must first say that we visited in January, when the weather was nice and warm - not hot. Having such nice weather allowed us to have a lazy walk around the valley, which in it of itself was amazing. I don't know what it was about this valley but I fell in love with my surroundings. All the tombs... More

What a place to to go. So much history! The Valley is a nice place and the mountains are amazing. You get to visit 3 tombs as part of your entrance ticket. The architecture/hieroglyphs within the tombs are so good to see. I imagine what they read and whatever they all say, they are all breathtaking. 100% recommend! No cameras... More

Extremely well maintained and well preserved historical monument. Tour of a lifetime. It also qualifies to be one of the seven wonders of the world along with Giza Pyramids.

The ticket gives you entrance to 3 tombs, you need to pay extra to see the tomb of Tutankhamun, do it at the entrance, it is worth it. Before you go into the tombs, there is a section with a miniature landscape of the area showing all the tombs found to date as well as the depth. This is amazing... More
