    Queen Nefertari Tomb
    One of the most impressive tombs in Luxor, and of all Egyptian tombs, so i have the pleasure to see this year for the first time. It was amazing and well preserved tomb full of colours and meaning, the preservation team have done a very good work, it is expensive, but it values the money, I recommend of course, and if I can insure I will go there again. Do not miss this amazing tomb, for me is the number 1.

    Nefertari means the most beautiful one
    The most vibrant and beautiful of the four tombs open in the Valley of the Queens (and not only in the Valley of the Queens but also in the Valley of the Kings) is the Tomb of Nefertari which requires a very significant extra payment to view and you are only allowed 10 minutes to do so though there might be some lee-way on the timing. If you can afford it and can move fast then it is worth it. The other three tombs are included in the standard entry price. The Valley of the Queens is less visited than the Valley of the Kings so you never feel crowded and it will only take an hour or so to visit the Valley. The Temple of Nefertari is a large tomb. You descend stairs into a chamber with one side room then descend more stairs to the 8 x 10 meter burial chamber with four pillars and three symmetrical side rooms. The pictures of Nefertari and the various gods on the painted plaster are colourful, vibrant and wonderfully preserved. Ceilings have the stars on black pattern. Wooden stairs and floors have been laid but there is no glass between you and the paintings. However, there is a 10 minute time limit in viewing this temple so you have to move fast! Photography is now permitted so I snapped away so I could see it later. Since you have already paid for entry to the other three tombs (Titi, Amunherkhepshef and Khaemwaset) you will have lots of time to see them beforehand or afterwards.

    One of the best travel organizers
    We spent unforgettable time with Komet Private Guide Tours, first we headed to the Egyptian Museum Cairo where we visited the masterpieces there and the Golden treasures of the boy king Tut Anch Amun, then we headed to the pyramids of Giza. We did a camel ride, we visited the Sphinx, and then did some shopping there. Really a great experience we had and will be back soon.

    Magnificent tomb
    This magnificent tomb is worth the extra ticket you need to purchase to enter. Nefertari was the principal wife of Ramesses II. Notice Nefertari's dark skin. She was a Nubian. The tomb is richly decorated and quite impressive. I later found out from my tour guide that Nefertari's tomb closed for renovations the day after we visited. We were among the last tourists to be able to visit it.

Amazing. The detail and history surrounding this Queen is mind blowing. Much of the history of the ancient Egyptian world features this Queen

The tomb is very well preserved and worth seeing. However although this is called the valley of the Queens, Nefertari is the only one of significance and it isn’t included in the price. At time of this review it’s an additional £ 2000 or about €40. However It’s much quieter than valley of the Kings which makes it a much more enjoyable visit. For that fee you will only be allowed 10 minutes but if you throw the “guard” of the tomb a few dollars he’ll let you linger a bit longer. Your admission fee gives you entry to the other 3 tombs.

There were so many colourful designs! I was amazed at how they preserved it so well! I can’t imagine having that big of a grave ! And so much effort!

Vibrant colors inside this tomb. It still boggles my mind that these paintings are thousands of years old. It's a separate fee to enter this tomb but it's worth it.

This tomb was one of my favorites. Thinking back hundreds of centuries that the colour involved in the tomb walls withstood the test of time.
