This is the essence of ancient Egypt. Tickets are required for individual tombs and some are very deep with steep inclines. Photography ticket is necessary.

I always dreamt of visiting Egypt and this trip was the biggest tick on my bucket list. Having sailed up the Nile on my river boat we ended our tour with the Valley of the Kings. Having seen the pyramids, Karnak temple and hatsepshuts temple,...More

We got up really early to visit the Valley before the main body of tourists arrived and so glad we did. This is a top tourist attraction in the area and it gets very busy quite quickly. We arrived around 0745/0800 and we weren't the...More

A major highlight of our visit to Egypt, so much more than I expected. A guide is a must when you visit. Many tombs to visit and many more still under restoration and being located

This was amazing. The colors preserved in the tombs are very impressive. I loved seeing all the artwork inside. You pay extra to take pics but it's worth it. If you don't pay up front, you have to check your camera once you get off...More

This area is full of so much history. The actual valley itself where the tombs are only takes about half a day or less. You can see the 3 tombs with your base ticket or pay extra to see the other tombs. It gets really...More

If you are already in Egypt, Luxor is a must see and the highlight for us is the Balley of the Kings in West Bank and is also known as Thebes in the ancient times. It was a great experience to explore the Valley of...More

The tombs themselves are amazing and well worth the visit. However, the cost of entry and the extra cost to get into the 'famous' tombs is a bit of a rip off. The organisation of the place needs some attention. My overall take away memory...More

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
