What people are saying:

Located in Luxor, the Valley of the Kings is the main tomb area for the pharaohs and nobles built during the eighteenth to twentieth dynasties (1539 BC-1075 BC) of ancient Egypt during the new dynasty. The cemetery is located in a desert valley 7 kilometers away from the west bank of the Nile River, not far from the ancient capital of Thebes. 64 Pharaohs of the Three Dynasties are buried. The largest tomb is the tomb of the 19th Dynasty Seti I, and the more famous tomb is Tut The tombs of Moss III, Amenhotep II, Seti I, Ramses II, etc. The Valley of the Kings was discovered by archaeological excavations after the 18th century. Now most of the tombs have been developed as tourist attractions. Generally, tourists who travel in groups can only walk around and see a few tombs in half a day. In the deep place, the burial objects have been swept away by the tomb robbers. Only the frescoes and a few empty sarcophagi can be seen.
