If you are visiting Deir el-Medina, this tomb should be definitely on your list! One of the most well-preserved decorations and it is quite spacious compared to the others. When you are at Deir el-Medina, the local "guides" will suggest you in which sequence visit the tombs. They usually leave this one at the end :)

This is a tiny tomb in the Workers'/Artisans' Village near Valley of the Queens. It is so small that only a few people can enter at a time, and you will probably get a private tour. entrance is included in the 40 EGP you pay to get into the site (NB you buy tickets off site, about 500m away). The... More

The Valley of the Workers is definitely worth a visit but not too many do. It has smaller but more intricate tombs where Egypt's labourers and artisans were buried. The tombs are in good condition and are obviously less crowded.

This tomb is included with your ticket to Deir el-Medina. Not as large, elaborate, ir carved as the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, but the color is amazingly vibrant. Photos are not allowed inside the tomb, but if you buy the photo DVD from the vendor in the Valley of the Kings, it includes 20 photos of this... More

Small tomb in the Workers Village of Deir el Medina but it is worth it. It comes with you ticket to visit the site so take advantage of it when you get it. It is a little difficult to get to if you have back or leg problems because they are steep stairs with low ceilings. I am over six... More

Deir el medina (Workers' village) has some very fine tombs of the tomb workers. these are smaller in size than the tombs of the Kings in VoK, but they are very well preserved, the colours look like as if they were painted just yesterday. Notable scenes on the wall are: 1. Right Wall - The solar cat slashing the Apophis... More

If you decide to pay a visit to the Valley of the Artisans and lacks a little time, you should visit the tomb of Sennedjem. He was a foreman of the artists who decorated the many royal tombes during the New Kingdom. Your whole life you will remember the vivid colours used in the different scenes depicting life in the...

It is very interesting to se how the finer citizens were buried in ancient Egypt. Wonderful paintings on the walls of the tombs.

This actually beat some of the tombs in VOK, the detail and colour was just fantastic. I would definitely go to these tombs and also see the village which is fascinating.

I highly advise you take the time to go to Deir el Medina, which was the tomb workers' village. Not only will you see where they lived, but you will be able to go into a couple of tombs, one of which is the Tomb of Sennedjem. Beautiful carvings and paintings are all over the tomb. It is a wonder... More
