Valley Of Queens - Review
Like the kings of the land, the leading ladies of Egypt too had their own burial ground, just as if not more spectacular than their male counterparts. Around 75 Queens of the 19th and 20th dynasties were buried here for their peaceful transition to the afterlife. Not all of them are open to tourists. In fact, till date only three tombs have been open to tourists, the tickets to which were sold faster than hot cakes. The notable burials here are of course the tombs of Nefertari, Amunherkhepshef, Khaemwaset and Titi.

Valley Of Queens, Luxor Reviews
This really blew my mind! I enjoyed this immensely! The building is stunning the history is amazing! If you go to Egypt please go on the excursion you will not be disappointed. This is a once in a lifetime bucket list item. I can’t say enough wonderful things. I was truly memorized.
This its the place were all queen were buried. But not happy how tourists are treated, no matter if you paid for taking pictures they are not allowed you to take .. General entry EGP 80 with 3 tumbs Photography ticket EGP 300
More preserved and consequently more beautiful tumbs than valley of the kings. Tumb of Nofertari costs extra. Keep im mind having some change with you for the guards in the tumbs.
Like many places in Egypt these graves are very interesting culturally. Like many other places in Egypt, however, this also has the same downsides: Annoying merchants, beggars and sometimes guards who request a bribe. Also it is often a shame how little protection some of the most precious antiquities of the world receive. Nevertheless this is a breathtaking country if you are interested in human history.
If you're to go to a valley I'd recommend the valley of the kings. However if you have some extra cash you can spend then I totally recommend the special tomb at valley of the queens (cannot recall the name of it) but it's probably the only one worth visiting, where you can see all the colors like they truly are, it was preserved like no other tomb.
