  • 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.

  • 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.
