Though the tombs are mostly smaller, with shorter passageways than those at Valley of the Kings, many are also beautifully painted. The ones we visited were largely behind plexiglass, but the colors were still vivid. The tombs include those for queens and other family members....More

The Valley of the Queens is not as popular or talked about as the valley of the Queens, but it has the best preserved and most impressively decorated tomb of them all. We were allowed to go into 3 or 4 tombs, but Queen Nefertari's...More

The tombs have been made very access able by the Egyptian tourist industry, the floor is boarded and the outside areas levelled where possible, interestingly it is not just Queens buried here, it is also princes, the sons and daughters of the Pharoes. The toms...More

The 3 tombs at Valley of the Queens were the most muted, paintings are behind plexiglass. All these tombs are much smaller than the ones at Valley of the Kings. Then there's an extra ticket for Queen Nefertari tomb that set you back 1200 Egyptian...More

It's not so impressive as Valley of Kings, so better see this first. There are less tombs, and the tombs are significantly smaller and less impressive. Although less people and cheaper entrance fee. It's worth only if you have enough time, if not, just go...More

The Valley of the Queens was a big let down. If you have already visited the Valley of the Kings you will be sorely disappointed with this location. When we arrived at 10am we were literally the only tourists at the site. The vendors were...More
