The Valley of the Nobles is not really a valley - more of a hillside. As an historic attraction it has not been developed as the Valley of the Kings or the Artisans Village has been. There is a car park and ticket office but...More

Take plenty of water and a head scarf, it is very hot but worth a visit. Always take plenty of 5 or 10Elb notes with you as they do expect tips. (that's only 25 or 50 pence but is appreciated)

It was amazing to know that the nobles and the rich had a place where they get buried. you can see them on the way back and forth to the valley of Kings. There are modern human settlements near the tombs.

Modern structures were built over these tombs and many of the tombs were damaged. You can see where the Government is removing the modern structures to preserve and find more hidden tombs. the area is full of alabaster shops so take some time to shop...More
