This is truly a great historical landmark that should be visited. For a family if you would like to visit most of the Tombs the entrance fees could quite be hefty but well worth the money. It is a pity thought that one cannot take any photo's inside.

This is a hard review for me to write. The Valley of the Kings isn't breathtakingly beautiful or blow your hair back exciting. It just silently makes you feel the weight of history in a way that few places I've been have managed to do. It's impressive in the same way the Coliseum in Rome is, like it just couldn't... More

What to say if not to mention that you are here in the purest atmosphere of what the greatest kings of Egypt at their time realized.. so much details into each of the graves. Be warned that no picture will be allowed into the whole site (which includes iphone pictures too). Guards in each grave will catch your phone to... More

Full and rich in history. There is no need to view them all, they generally hve the same layout and similar feel to them. Take water with you as there are no stalls there and it can get very hot.

Many sites don't need research, but the tombs in Valley of the Kings do. Read up on what you want to see and understand the significance of the various pharaohs, otherwise a lot of the experience is lost. You can only chose three tombs on a ticket and some are tricky climbs (Thutmois III) while others are so easy to... More

The valley requires a lot of up hill walking and stairs but it is amazing. The tomb of Metenptah, Ramses 4 and Ramses II are free, the rest are extra. I was tired after 3 so I did not do any more. The path under ground to Metenptah is very long with lots of stairs. I really wish that I... More
