These tombs are quite a distance up into the 'hills' and a mini train is provided to transport visitors to the tombs.

It is nice to see tombs from the different dynasties if you aren't visiting them all. Try Thutmose III, Horemhab if open (transitional to the 19th dynasty, Merneptah and this tomb, followed by Ramesses IV or VI. You then can see how the tombs developed over time.

there are many Ramses Kings and all are interesting the Tombs here are very well protected and totally agree with policy of no photos allowed, its so much more enjoyable not being elbowed out of the way with camera toting tourists !!

Another must see attraction. We visited again for another Nile cruise and this was in the itinerary. A great English speaking guide and we were lucky with gorgeous warm but not roasting January weather. A highly recommended visit.
