In the Valley of the Queens you find the beautiful tomb of Amenherkepshef. Its decoration with colorful scenes are a very pretty sight. THE Queen of the Valley is of course Nefertari, whose tomb is open upon request (an the handing over of a hefty sum of money). If you didn't win the lottery Amenherkepshef is the best stand-in queen.

One of only three tombs open in so called The Valley of the Queens. The decoration is exquisite and vibrant in colour, showing Amonherkhoshef and his father Ramses II. Worthy of a visit

Walking into the Valley of the Kings on a sticking on windless day is a treat. Take plenty of water though. They had a limited number of tombs open the day we visited. This one was majestic in its grandure and size. The painting and detailed stunning. You can't describe it unless you've been there.

My first visit to an Egyptian tomb was this one. And it was amazing. When I entered the tomb and saw the images of the young princes and princess buried here it was as if history came alive again. The Valley of the Queens is not often included in tours, but take a trip of your own to make this... More

Amazing. Must see. Far better preserved than the Kings Valley Tombs. The tomb hieroglyphics & images are completely colored and seem so fresh!! Very refined etching and sharp features. Beautiful. PROs; Off the beaten path - won't see many tourists - can explore at your leisure - unhurried - no harassing sales people or guards - can easily finish all... More

This tomb is in the Valley of the Queens and it is worth the time and effort to visit. He was the son of Ramses II and the quality of the wall paintings is very good. You can see his white sarcophagus in the burial chamber. Bring water as the prices are high in the sales area just before you... More

This tomb will not disappoint. Situated in the Valley of the Queens this tomb belongs to on of the sons of Ramesses III. The quality of the artwork in this tomb is to a high standard, although some areas have been blacked by smoke due to it once being the residence of a local family. In the areas where the... More
