Valley Of The Kings - Review
Anywhere you look in Egyptology, you’ll come across the concept of afterlife- the journey of the soul from one world to another! That’s one of the reasons they’re mummification process was so exact and precise. The Valley of the Kings is essentially a burial ground. All the kings and pharaohs of Egypt of the New Kingdom period were buried there with all the possessions they could possibly need in their journey to the afterlife. With over 63 tombs, each tomb is different from the others; the murals lining the walls, the embellishments on the actual coffin/casket couldn’t be any more different.

Valley Of The Kings, Luxor Reviews
A must see. Pretty much all the pharaohs tombs are here. Bring lots of water. You can’t take photos in any of burial chamber/tombs. You can easily enough just give 50 egp to the guard and he’ll let you do it... some tombs are better than others. It’s about 18$ entrance fee. With that ticket you get to go into three tombs of your choosing.
Valley of the Kings was pretty decent, a little bit busy but not packed! we were able to see 3 tombs which were fairly well intact which was nice. If you do however love the tombs here and wish you could see them in more detail they have the Nefertiti tomb in the valley of the queens, it is amazing! do be warned the people at the font of the tomb selling books etc aren't always selling factual information, the valley of the kings book we got was way off!
Valley Of The Kings is one of the best places for all those who loves the world history , history from Before Christ . Too hot if visited between March - August. You will be amazed to see the art they used to do 2000 years before . Take your water . You have to buy tokens to click photo or make video inside !
The Valley of the Kings is truly amazing and a must see! I would advise getting there VERY early, to avoid lots of queues and people but also for the heat. Trust me, you do not want to be there when it gets too hot. You get a ticket for entry into 4 tombs (if I remember correctly) and you can pay slightly more to go into King Tut's tomb. There is a little train that you can buy a ticket for that takes you from the ticket booths to the tombs and I advise spending a few pounds on this as its well worth it, especially for the return journey, as you are likely to be very hot and tired after looking at the tombs. Wear comfy shoes and take water with you! Enjoy
A place must see, there is people, but not crowded in the afternoon. You pay extra for making photos and videos/300 in local currency/ in some of the tombs. The colors inside the tombs are still so vivid and well preserved. It's worth to visit.
