“One of the best a must see”
Review of Tomb of Ay

Tomb of Ay
Ranked #33 of 84 things to do in Luxor

Well what can I say, this tomb is seldom visited and it is such a pitty. You get an extra ticket at the V of the Kings and take a small taxi ride off a road neer the V of the Kings to pick up the caretaker. It has to be one of the best kept secrets, and most of all no turists. I would rather see this tomb than any other if I could only pick one.

Our first but not the last visit to the Tomb of Ay. What a find! We were the only visitors all week. Find a tame TAXI driver who will take on the challenge of the very poor road and be awe inspired.

This is well worth a visit, Not as grand as some of the greats but still very impressive. The tombs construction reflects Ays influence in his time.

This was a fascinating tomb but be warned there are loads of steps to get to the depths of the tomb. Not a selection for the unfit of less mobile

Wow, what an amazing experience.
This was the first tomb we went to at the Valley of the Kings and it was magical.
Being taken by armed guard in our vehicle was exciting and when we arrived it was deserted.
We went down in to the tomb and were told all about the history of Ay and what everything on the walls meant.
I have to say this was a beautiful small tomb and my favourite place and moment in Luxor.
A hidden treasure. :-)
