Valley of the Kings
Become Indiana Jones in the Valley of the Kings
A short ride from Luxor is one of the most incredible places on the planet, the Valley of the Kings. Home to more than 60 tombs of royals and other important personages, it is here where you will find Ramses and Tut, their tombs still decorated so many millennia later. I couldn’t help but think what those first archaeologists felt as they first reopened these tombs, bringing to life pharaohs that previously had been lost to the sands of time. Photos aren’t allowed anywhere in the Valley, but that’s okay. The images of your special visit here will be etched in your memory forever.
