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
Truly had no real idea what to expect here. I pictured a valley... It's a massive dead end canyon. 56 holes dug deep into the hills of the canyon are the tombs of the kings of Egypt's past. Nothing short of an astonishing achievement. Be sure to go into the tombs - perspective is important..
This is a bucket list item not to be missed. It’s absolutely amazing! We enjoyed our time here immensely and I highly recommend this place to everyone young and old. The history is incredible! I can’t say enough about this gem on earth except hurry up and go!
Fascinating historical sight, when you get there you can never imagine what the mountain hides for you. On the outside it is just a desert but as you go into the gate you will be dazzled how the ancient people built these tunnels and the beautiful artwork on the walls and the size of the tomb rocks and how they got it there. Amazing place to visit do not miss it.
Best experience. To see all these wonderful tombs. 100 meters deep under desert. Colorful painting that lasted more than 4000 years. Magnificent
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.
