We took a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings early in the day (breathtaking experience if you have the opportunity!). Later in the day, we were in a group tour with an excellent Egyptologist as our guide. We had time to tour 3 different tombs including the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut which was still colorful...

Full of history and you can tell the government is trying to take care of it by only opening a few tombs at a time to ensure they remain accessible for future generations. Unfortunately this care does not extend to the guardians as they will do anything and allow anything for a little money, and they don't hide this fact... More

The different tombs open to the public have a wealth of wall paintings and relief carvings. Mostly the stairs are not a problem - I have chronic fatigue and arthritic knees and I did okay. We saw a variety of tombs and each was unique. I particularly loved the painted ceilings with the Goddess Nut arching overall. The Valley itself... More

There is a lot to see so you have to pick and choose or spend much more time there than we did. We were fortunate to have hired an Egyptologist so he helped tremendously with narrowing down what we should visit and what to skip. Lots of history so try to digest as much as you can along the way.... More

Fascinating and very historical. Lots of tourist. No cameras allowed in the entire area. Had to leave cameras in car. Paid to see 3 tombs and they were very beautiful. Had to pay extra for king tut tomb. Guards on the take for tips in each tomb. Could be very hot in summer.

What more is there to say? A stark, barren valley holds dozens of ancient Egyptian pharoah's tombs, incredibly well-preserved. If you're in Luxor, you *must* go here, preferably with a guide. Cons: no photography is allowed in the valley, so you're forced to buy a pre-packaged bundle of postcards if you want pictures. If you have a private guide, they... More

When you visit be sure to stop and take a close look at the model of the underground tombs in the lobby of the visitors center. Really puts everything into perspective. Pay the extra $$ to visit the special tombs. It it totally worth it! King Tut, Seti etc.

The fabled treasures from the one undisturbed (relatively) Egyptian tomb is awe inspiring. The treasures have been on travelling exhibitions around the world before, and bulk of them are on view at the National Museum in Cairo. But this is where you get to see the actual mummy of the boy king and the preserved paintings in his burial complex.... More
