A handful of tombs but the colours and the somewhat adventurous layout of the tombs is what's impressive here. I saw almost every tomb open that was open on the days that I visited those locations (Nobles, Queens, Kings, Workers) and I can rate them...More

The Tomb of Sennedjem was a real find here on tripadvisor. This hidden gem is not to be missed if if you want to see a tomb with amazing clarity and bright rainbow of colors. I can't believe nobody hardly talks about this workers tomb....More

Deir el-Medina should not be missed and here are the reasons why. The artisans that excavated and decorated royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings were amongst the best craftsmen in Ancient Egypt. During their days off the workmen could work on their own...More

This off-the-beaten path destination is truly remarkable. Hire a taxi to take you to the ticket office and then to the site. View the foundations of the former workers' village and climb down into their amazingly preserved tombs. It's a really great contrast in terms...More

It is also called the Valley of the Worker and you can see a large village area with a complex of many houses built in ancient times. A short walk up the mountain will lead you to other caves that were tombs. Some caves have...More

While returning from the Valley Of Kings, we stopped briefly at this gallery where expert artisans demonstrated the fine craft of alabaster carving ... a translucent alabaster lampshade is a worthwhile keepsake to have.

This is less crowded, and the colours are so much brighter and colourful than the Valley of the kings. If you are on West bank, make sure to visit this!
