This was the best of the best for me in our 6 days in Egypt. The tomb of Nefitari has barely been open for the last few years. Daily limit is around 115 people from memory. There is an extra cost of 1000 Egyptian pound to get access but it is totally worth it. Words do not do it justice.... More

This is an expensive tourist visit, but worth the money you pay. This tomb is the only one in Egypt that has been reworked to resemble the original tomb of ancient Egypt with natural colours being worked into the art and the resultant effect is brilliant, one should not miss this as this is what would give one an idea...

After seeing the valley of the kings, the valley of the queens is not as impressive. We also paid the extra money to see queen Nefertari's tomb and although it was nice it was not what I expected and definitely not worth the money ($50 USD per person). We were two of four people at the site. The workers will... More

We paid EG£1000.- each entrance fee for Nefertari tomb plus entrance fee to the Valley. Could only see 2 other visitors in The Valley - very eerie. Went into the tomb being hassled the whole time by a tomb guardian who even tried to persuade us to take photos which we know is not allowed - we declined but even... More

I thought long and hard before booking this trip because it is $$$ extra. Wow! I am so glad I did. This is the most beautiful & well-preserved tomb in all Egypt. It is unusual because, although she was the favourite wife of Ramses III, there is no mention of him in the tomb. I was the only visitor &... More

If you have the chance to visit Neferiar's tomb, it is here in the Valley of the Queens. It's closed to most people, but your tour group may be able to get special permission to go there if you pay the extra $$$. Without doubt, it is the most beautiful tomb in all of Thebes and maybe the most beautiful... More

We Have visited Luxor three times before and have been on all of the well known tours but have never been to the valley of the Queens. There was a tour available but we were the only couple booking it and so we had the Egyptologist and driver to ourselves. The valley is approx 30 mins from the cruise ships... More

We visited in October 2015 and we were honestly the only tourists there that day. We felt sorry for the workers. After the valley of the Kings, this was smaller, but worth stopping at - if you are pressed for time though, choose the Valley of the Kings. We marvelled at the tombs again.

You have to run the gauntlet past the local traders pre entry and trudge your way across the causeway, though it's worth it
