I spent about 2 hours here. Your ticket gets you entrance to 3 tombs; there were 6 to choose from. Definitely cool. Like, "These really do exist!" kind of cool. You don't need long, though, and the ticket price is 100 Egyptian pounds for foreigners....More

This has to rate as a must see place. The banning of photography ANYWHERE inside the valley, not just inside the tombs is annoying - unless you are willing to bribe the attendants, if you are they will take your picture and stand by you...More

Although photos & videos are not allowed inside the grave tombs, one can still make a lovely photo from the outside. I suggest buying from the local sellers a complete postcard selection this will also help the economy.

Valley of the Kings was impressive, and even more so that they're still finding new tombs! It's amazing how well-preserved they are considering their age. Note: the entrance fee does not include all tombs -- you could get a package of 3 and buy additional...More

Truly amazing place to see. A few of the tombs cost extra to see, but worth the price. Take your time and enjoy the site.

You really must study a lot before you go to Egypt in general esp when visiting the Pharaonic period sites of Upper Egypt.
