We visited three tombs in the Valley of the Queens. While the tombs may not be as extensive as some in the Valley of the Kings, the quality of the paintings and hieroglyphics is very similar...in short, amazing! We saw fewer than ten other tourists...More

The Valley of the Queens is located not far from the Valley of the Kings in a wadi (valley) called Wadi el-Melikat. There are several secondary valleys associated with the Valley of the Queens, namely the Valley of Prince Ahmose, the Valley of the Rope,...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

I was one of about 3 tourists on site. They are great to see but the restored Tomb costs a whopping 1000EGP extra. If you Visit the valley of the Kings Tombs first you might be a bit disappointed because the Kings were hugely important...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

We had a ticket to allow us into two tombs, and would have to pay extra to go into the tomb of Nefertari. So, we went into a tomb that was originally intended for a different son of Rameses III, but was used for his...More

This complex is full of history. Its is really impressive as some of the most important queens were burried here. However, after visiting the Valley of the Kings, this one is just one more place that visitors can live witout visiting it. The entrance fee...More

Even if only for the Tomb of Nefertari the valley is worth visiting. I agree an entrance fee of 50 euro or dollar is high but you get value for money. We were there in the quiet month of January and had a bit more...More

I enjoyed the Valley of the Queens more than the Valley of the Kings, less people and reasonably priced at 80 LE as of December 2017 for three tombs. I remember seeing the tombs of Prince Khaemwaset (QV44) and Queen Titi (QV52), which were both...More
