Enter the Valley of the Kings on the west bank of the Nile River to visit the tombs of some of Egypt's greatest pharaohs, including the famous King Tutankhamun.
It was a long day but well worth the sites.

Excellent tour, very knowledgable guide.

The sights WERE amazing but the tour was not. The tour guide was awful. We were not allowed cameras at all in the Valley of the Kings - inside the tombs or out. The drive from Safaga to Luxor is too long - 4 and a half hours one way - and time at the valley too short (less than 1 1/2 hours). The sights are worth seeing but it should ideally be done from a Nile Cruise, not from Safaga.

At sea days
the hawkers were so bad it really was a turn off to be pestered constantly!

This would have been a 5 if we were in better shape. The stairs prevent one from truly experiencing the incredible tombs.
