Our cruise tour brought us to the Valley of the Kings and no visit would be right without dropping in on the sarcophagus of King Tut Egyptian Pharoah. His tomb is probably less ornate than those of many oh his predecessors like Ramses VI, III, and IX. Those had significantly more colorful and larger tombs, and substantially more hieroglyphics than... More

Just being here gives the feeling of times long ago that was preserved forever. If you are one of the lucky few to have the opportunity to go here, you will not be disappointed. Being able to experience this geographical location that was once populated by an ancient civilization is awe, inspiring, something to greatly cherish. My trip was pretty... More

The best part of this is the stories told on the walls of the tombs. I saw this area in 1994 and recently returned to see more and was still in awe of the colour and complexity of the hieroglyphics on the walls. Visiting here is a must to make ones visit to Egypt complete.

Truly amazing when you see the vibrant colors and artwork and then think of the age. We were given a choice of three tombs with our admission and personally, I'd skip Tut's tomb and look at others with more art works. I was afraid it would be claustrophobic, but it was not at all.

Wow...how lucky...virtually had the valley to ourselves. The tombs are amazing...they were truly a highlight to our trip. We purchased additional tickets for Ramses tomb, it was well worth it and very inexpensive.

You really need a book a tour to visit here as it is out on the west bank of the Nile and not easy to get to. Impressive enough.

The tombs are incredible, and the time to visit is now as there are few tourists about. It gives you time to study the paintings without being jostled.

The ticket to this valley allows you to enter 3 tombs. Some are decorated perfectly and in bright colors, some are unfinished as the Pharaoh died before the (spacious) rooms had been finished. Buy the extra ticket to visit Tut-anch Amon, the only Pharaoh still in his own tomb.......

This was definitely of of the highlights for me of my visit to Egypt. I did not purchase additional tickets for example Tutankhamen's tomb, however thought that the three or four that I did visit were great! No photography allowed once you enter the site where the actual tombs were located.
