Our guide from Aladin tours left the best for last. This tomb was absolutely jaw dropping. The unbelievable colors that pictures that were still intact was amazing. This is a must!

It is nice to see tombs from the different dynasties if you aren't visiting them all. Try Thutmose III, Horemhab if open (transitional to the 19th dynasty, Merneptah and this tomb, followed by Ramesses IV or VI. You then can see how the tombs developed over time.

there are many Ramses Kings and all are interesting the Tombs here are very well protected and totally agree with policy of no photos allowed, its so much more enjoyable not being elbowed out of the way with camera toting tourists !!

Another must see attraction. We visited again for another Nile cruise and this was in the itinerary. A great English speaking guide and we were lucky with gorgeous warm but not roasting January weather. A highly recommended visit.

It's a very surreal feeling visiting a tomb of a Pharaoh. The walls and ceiling are full of Egyptian Gods, Pharaohs and stories to do with the deceased. We had to leave our cameras on the bus so I was disappointed to not be able to take photos, but you can see some online. Walking up to the tombs you... More

This was one of three tombs we visited. We came away appreciating the discovery and ongoing excavation work in the area.

The Tomb and Burial Chamber of Pharaoh Ramses III is among the over sixty such tombs scattered all over the Valley of the Kings on the west bank of the river Nile. Like several other tombs, this also has stone carvings adorning the passage walls.

This tomb is open for visitors, quite long spread inside the mountain.Don't take photos inside the tomb, some time the guards suggest you for the photo and latter the officers at the exit counter traps you.
