    Both tombs were great
    When you are here you see both the Queen Nefertari and Queen Titi tombs. All are in excellent condition and there are virtually no crowds at these two places compared to the Valley of the Kings. I had already been to the tomb of Hatshepsut on my last trip to Egypt so I only took the golf cart to it and snapped a few photos since it was very crowded. It is unique in how it looks compared to the other tombs here. The colors of everything ancient in Egypt is amazing, it is due to all that low humidity.

    Expensive (relatively speaking) yes, worth it YES!!!
    Valley of the Queens is often overlooked for 2 reasons: time and price. Folks, Queen Nefertari's Tomb may very well be the most vibrant and well preserved tombs, and it is huge! The colors are amazing and it is worth it to see it. You can tell how much she was revered by Ramesses the Great. And if you get to Abu Simbel, yet another temple constructed in honor of her. Go! Don't let a tour guide talk you out of it - they may try because of the extra time but it's right there on that same side of Luxor. Go!!

    Worth the visit - not as many tourists/people and Nefertari's tomb is really a lovely vibrant one to visit. The ticket also includes several other tombs which are quick and easy to visit as well. Also not as many locals bombarding/tricking you into guided tours here.

There are only four tombs open in the Valley of the Queens (which should be called the Valley of the Queens and Princes). The most vibrant and beautiful of them, not only in the Valley of the Queens but also in the Valley of the Kings, is the Tomb of Nefertari which requires a significant extra payment to view and you are only allowed 10 minutes to do so though there is some lee-way on the timing. If you can afford it and can move fast then it is worth it. The other three tombs appear to date from the time of Ramses III and are smaller and less spectacular but still worth-while viewing, particularly as they are included in the 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.

QV 66 Nefertari. When we arrived the Tomb of Nefertari was currently uncrowded so we saw it first and, to some degree, it spoiled us for the other tombs in the Valley of the Queens (though we got over it). It 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 as fast as I could just so I would have time to savour it later.

QV 52 Titi. After seeing Nefertari's tomb the colours of the sunken plaster reliefs in Titi's tomb seemed washed out but we came to appreciate the difference and admire it for itself. Most walls are protected by glass panels and there are places where the plaster has been damaged. The ceilings have a faded but well-preserved star night pattern. There is a corridor with side chambers, a hall and burial chamber.

QV 55 Amen Khopshef / Amunherkhepshef. This tomb consists of an inclined entrance way, two chambers with side rooms (these are currently closed to visitors) and a burial chamber with a sarcophagus. The son of King Ramses III died in his teens and he is shown with his father in some of the paintings. The extensive sunken relief painted plaster has some bright colours. Much of the walls are protected by glass barriers.

QV 44 Kha M Waset or Khaemwaset. Another one of King Ramses III's sons is buried here in this corridor-type tomb consisting of an entrance way, a room with two side rooms then the burial room with two doorways that lead nowhere and a final square chamber. Khaemwaset is pictured with his father and the gods on the walls again in sunken relief painted plaster. These colourful paintings are protected by glass barriers.

I visited the Valley of the Queen's for the first time this year, and i am increasingly falling in love with its grandeur, the tombs are truly incredible, especially the Nefertari tomb, full of colours and well preserved, it was amazing. An unforgettable place not to be missed on a visit to Luxor.

Right next to the Valley of the Kings and mostly this valley of the Queens has just one attraction, that of the tomb of Queen Nefetari, the tomb kept most of its colors inside and it was beautiful. By rule you could not stay for more than 15 min but just pay a tip to the employee sitting inside and he would allow you to stay longer.

Tbh, after visiting Kings, Nobles and workers valleys, we were so done!

But the tomb of Queen Nefertari, the beloved of Ramesses II, is truly worth seeing.

The tombs that were open were great. All of them had some love put into them and I really enjoyed. I wish I could go into the tombs of the princesses( they were the holes in the ground which were covered in nets) Because they looked very interesting.

I recommend going here after you see the Valley of Kings. In particular, pay the extra fee to see the Tomb of Nefertari.

The place where the wives and children of pharaohs were buried. Smaller than the Valley of The Kings but the tombs are just as impressive - with beautiful colors that are still vibrant and wall art that is in some cases even more intact than in pharaohs tombs in the Valley of the Kings
