Journey back in time by visiting Valley of the Kings, one of the world's most significant archaeological sites, dating back to the Egyptian New Kingdom. The area contains about 63 tombs and chambers, final resting places of pharaohs and nobles. A handful of tombs, including that of Tutankhamen, have been opened to the public--with its artwork and layout, it remains indicative of ancient Egyptian ingenuity.

wow and wow. the area is known as the valley of the kings. there are 68 tombs here. those that are best known are sometimes the most desecrated. strongly recommend you go with a guide. the talks are great and @ tour has a security guard. why do you need a guard .. to save you from the vendors. Mexico has nothing on these vendors. There is a lot of cool stuff there though. still, my husband had to be rescued by our guard from the vendors that surrounded him. there was no physical harm but they just would not take no for an answer.. have fun.
Incredible history brilliant colors still show everyone should visit. I only wish more tombs were open to the public. We went inside 4 different including three tomb of King Tut.
