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.

  • 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.

  • A visit to the beautiful tomb of the favourite wife of Rameses II is worth the very expensive entry fee. You need a group and a pre-booking arrangement. The paintings have been beautifully conserved, the colours are so vibrant, you can't believe how many 1000's of years it has been here. The vendors outside the tomb will pester you to buy the book about the conservation process. Buy it! And no, I don't get baksheesh for this.

  • 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.

  • Must see place in Luxor, Egypt. Very captivating, inspiring and full historical features of an ancient civilisation

  • If you're going to the valley of the Kings you definitely have to go to the valley of the queen's! Queen Nefertiti's tomb was just amazing, the most well kept tomb you can ever see! The cost of entry is quite expensive around £1000 egyptian the other tombs are ol but somewhat the same as the valley of the Kings.
