Crazy how a nature made and a man made structures can fit together so well. Crazy how and what the ancient Egyptians did.

10 minute car ride from the river. Many tombs dug into the side of the hills including Tut An Kaman and his family. Recommend to do!

What a fantastic site! Just loved this whole experience. Walking through the tombs and seeing all the hieroglyphics in each tomb...just magnificent. We went in May and it was hot, 45 degrees C but not humid. We drank lots of water.

The Valley of the Kings - and the 62 known tombs there, were built because the Pharaohs found that the Pyramids did not serve to deter raiders after they were built. The Valley was supposed to be a peaceful, secretive place for the journey to...More

I used Mara House Luxor and highly recommend it! Probably the only tour company in Egypt that does not take you on side trips to commission stores, wasting hours of valuable time. No sudden extra expensive surprises either... More
