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.

  • I found both the Valley of the Queens and the Valley of the Kings to be incredible but the tomb walls in the Valley of the Queens were being protected by thick, somewhat dirty glass so the experience of being inside the tombs was a bit less enjoyable for me. They are still worth seeing though and are extremely beautiful. I don't recommend buying a photo ticket for the Valley of the Queens, but I do for the Valley of the Kings. The two photos below show the difference between the glassless tombs in the Valley of the Kings vs the protected tombs here.

  • This is an amazing place rarely visited by the majority of tourist. QUEEN Nefertari's tomb is remarkable and highly recommended. Perfection in the tomb business.

  • 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.

  • Amazing and astounding, a ' must see ' place to go 📆

  • The Valley of the Queens is a site in Egypt, where wives of Pharaohs were buried in ancient times. In ancient times, it was known as Ta-Set-Neferu, meaning –"the place of beauty"
