The tombs in Valley of the Kings were one of the most interesting places we visited in Egypt. The colored carvings and paintings inside the tombs are amazingly kept for more than 3-4000 years ago! They also allow visitors to take photos and videos inside...More

The Valley of the Kings houses many of Egypt's tombs, so this is a must for the visitor. One ticket lets you view 3 tombs of your choice. So it would be wise to check out the tombs online before deciding which to see. Some...More

Unbelievable expetience n visit to believe n unanswered thoughts. Be ready to walk. Best time to travel is during winter or cold season. Most of the place are tombs.

Avoid paying extra for Tut tomb or taking pics and go to the ones that are included in your basic ticket. Stunning paintwork can still be seen and it is very beautiful and mysterious. Must visit while in Luxor.
