No reviews, be the first!

The Valley of the Kings in Egypt is one of the most important and dated historical landmarks in the world. Containing several tombs belonging to ancient Egyptian pharaohs, nobles and their families from the New Kingdom dynasties from the 16th to 11th century B.C., the valley includes the tombs of Ramesses I, Ramesses III and Merenptah.

Buying tickets to the valley gets you access to any three tombs of your choice, with extra visitations costing a bit extra, but once inside, there are metal inscriptions detailing the history of each tomb.
