It was hard to choose a favorite between Seti I and Nefertari. Both are absolutely spectacular! Seti's is very large with spectacular colors. It is mind boggling how something this old could be so well preserved. This tomb is a sight that must be seen....More

It’s almost incomprehensible when you think of the effort and craftsmanship that went into the tombs in the Valley of the Kings given the time they were built. So many amazing tombs , paintings and carvings, it was worth the trip to Egypt alone.

We loved the Valley of the Kings. Your ticket allows you to see three tombs. We chose Tut, Rameses iii and Amenhotep iii. They were all marvellous. The paintings are marvellous and the colours vibrant. Be warned the Valley is very hot.

Situated in the West Bank of the river Nile, the valley is amazing; high in the mountains you need a car to arrive there- easy coz there are a lot of locals willing to take you there for a fee. Once there you pay 160...More

After entering you take a 500+ metre "train ride" where you enter a site which is hard to comprehend. You are taken back many thousands of years as you enter the tombs of various kings. Your ticket allows entry to three but you can choose....More

This place gets very hot, we were told to go early as it is very open. So much to see and do here. We managed to view 5 of the tombs which were open to the public. A must see.

I don't believe pets are allowed in the archeological site. Even if they were, I would not recommend taking a dog to the Valley of the Kings. First, each archeological site (tomb) is being carefully managed to preserve the... More

As said, not all tombs will be accessible. There is also not a lot of shade in the valley (unless you are in a tomb of course!) so make sure you keep them covered. If you look at my profile by clicking on my name to the left... More
