Tomb of Nefertari
Oct 2021
If you intend to visit the Tomb of Nefertari you may consider buying the Luxor Pass as the entry ticket for this tomb alone is around $90. I went there twice. The first time after my extensive visit to the Valley of the Kings where I took so many pictures that my phone battery died. So I decided to go and just see it and to return the next day with a fully charged phone plus a back-up battery.

The tomb is not as large as it may seem when you look at pictures or videos but the colors are really spectacular. And pictures don't do it justice. You really have to see it to appreciate it.
You have to register your Pass with a supervisor before you go inside the tomb. The attendants hint that for a small token of appreciation they would allow you to stay there 15 minutes instead of the allowed 10. One of them probably figured that he would get a nice tip from me so he didn't bother me with timing and let me into every room and pointed to every significant and insignificant detail on the frescoes. A 50-pound bill LE was well received and we became friends.

The Valley of the Queens has only 4 toms open to the public and on the day of my visit one of them was closed .

Best tomb but most expensive and most aggressive touts/guards
Jan 2021
I was the only one to visit the Nefertari tomb. It is great to have it to yourself, but you aren't alone. The guard/guide/beggers focus 100% of their attention on just you to show you where to look or take a photo, take your phone to take a photo of you "for you", and then insist on a tip. They'll even tell complain when you don't tip enough. For such an expensive tomb, I'd say it's not worth the price, but I suppose if you have the premium Luxor pass, it's not as bad.

It's one of the most beautiful tombs I've ever seen.
And it's enjoying its bright colors so far after thousands of years

Best tomb anywhere in Egypt !
Jan 2020
Get the special extra cost ticket! It's worth it. You will only be allowed in this excellent tomb for 10 minutes at a time. So go back with the same ticket!

And you never have to stand in line

Well preserved tomb, must see!
Mar 2020
Amazing tomb, well worth the visit! Huge with so much color! We got there early in the morning and had the tomb to ourselves, great photos! Really easy to access. If somebody wants to take your photo with your camera or guide you, they will expect a tip, you can kindly say no thanks, be firm.

Brillantly preserved paintings
Jan 2020
The paintings inside the tomb look like they were just done. A beautiful and amazing place. Be careful of helpful locals offering to take your photo with your camera. They are looking for a small handout. Overall the tomb is one of my favorite places I visited in Egypt.

Love letters at Nefertari Tomb
Feb 2020 • Friends
It is one of the most beautiful places I saw in Egypt. Even better than Abu Simbel. Painted more than 3,000 years ago it looks like freshly painted on some of the walls. Love letter to Ramses and to Divinity. There’s a happy playfulness to this impressive artistic place.

Unbelievably amazing if you are lucky enough to go there
Mar 2020
This 5000 year old tomb in the Valley of the Queens, is hard to find and has only recently been opened to a very few visitors each day.
The color is as though it was just painted, or just restored, and yet it hasn't been touched since they found it and closed it away until just recently. There will be local inside who can help you understand what you are seeing, since your tour guide cannot go in. Extensive in size, you go down the ramp into the main room, and you will find about 6 rooms off that.
Definitely worth going into.

A must see!
Mar 2020 • Couples
The tomb is by the far among the most remarkable regarding its overall conditions. An absolute must see. My biggest problem are the workers of the sites in general, specifically this one. They are harassing and annoying. The tip greed in this country is highly disturbing. I’m in total “tip” fatigue and these vultures ruined this particular tomb for us.

Sistine Chapel of ancient Egypt!!!
Feb 2020
The tomb of Queen Nefertari, wife of Rames II, has been closed for the longest time for restoration work. It just recently opened to the public but the price is steep, E1000 per person (about US$66) and you only get to spend 10 minutes in the tomb, but it is well worth it! This tomb is stunning with vibrant colors and beautiful art. This is by far the most beautiful tomb in the Valley of the Queens and the Valley of the Kings! And they now allow the public to take photos with your cell phone! This is a new first. Don't let the short amount of time deter you from going to this tomb. Unbelievable stunning. One of the great wonders in all of Egypt.
