We went without a tour guide which was just fine, just took us a bit to understand everything you actually have to buy. You have to buy the main entrance ticket, the special tickets to see Tut and I forget the other one (ha) then you have to buy the train tickets that take you up (you can walk if... More

The tombs are closer than I had imagined. Entry price gave you 3 tombs to visit. The first two we visited were not that deep into the valley walls, the third was a steep incline down and not easy for me with walking difficulties. The interiors are very similar as the tomb builders followed a formulaic plan. On entry you... More

If you visited Luxor without going to Valley of the Kings means you never been to Luxor. The wonderful details inside the tombs are stunning. Advises for going there: 1-The guards inside the tombs may try to tell you some information seeking gratuity, don't listen to them, just stick to your guide or web information. 2-don't try to take pictures...

This place is spectacular. Definitely leaves visitors feeling pretty small in the scope of history and humankind. Very affordable and straightforward to visit. Also definitely sad to see that many of the tombs/tunnels have evidence of hundreds of grimy hands and graffiti/scratching on them... please respect the space. It's thousands of years old and still standing, don't be the person... More

Difficult, this one. You pay to get in: you choose which temples you want to see and in you go. There is no photography allowed inside the tombs, except if one of the guides decides that you look an easy touch and demands a tip to allow you to take photos: even if you'd rather not. I understand that they... More

Entrance fee includes three tombs but extra for Tutankhamen tomb. Best time to go is early morning due to the heat of the day.

Here you will find some well-preserved tombs, albeit without any treasures! But the paintings, carvings and colours are worth seeing. You can visit 3 tombs of your choice at this attraction.

I am so pleased that they are taking care of this place as the tombs are so very unique. We bought a pass that allowed us into three tombs and then we payed to go into Tut's tomb (100 Egpytian pounds). The tombs are just exquisite and the engravings incredible especially after a few thousand years. In some of them... More
