The tomb is a bit off the beaten path but our driver was happy to take us there. We were the only couple there at the end of the day so the caretaker had to unlock the gate to let us in. It’s a bit...More

Although the tomb is high up in the West Valley, it gives you an insight to what the Valley of The Kings must have once looked like. There were archeologists digging for new tombs which was fascinating although we were asked not to take photos....More

This is one of those tombs that are quite a hike, almost to a different valley from valley of the Kings. It is interesting to imagine that there might be even MORE of these tombs in this new valley though. If you have been to...More

Ay's tomb is in the Western Valley, up a side canyon from the main Valley of the Kings. You'll need a car to get up here and you'll have to wake the guard in his little hut. Then he will unlock the door and you'll...More

This tomb was enlarged by Aye after the death of Tut for his own use. Aye's successor had major issues with him and smashed his sarcaphagus (restored now) and attacked his images in the tomb.

Using our Luxor Pass, we decided to visit Ay. His tomb is in the Valley of the Monkeys. This valley is not commercialised for visitors, and it's easy to imagine the way the Valley of the Kings was 100 years ago. The tomb is visited...More

This tomb is in the western valley, which is called the valley of Monkeys also. This needs a separate ticket. When I visited it, I was the only visitor there. We picked up the site guardian on our way, who was asleep in his hut....More

Ay was Tutankhamun successor and only reigned for about 4 years and the small tomb reflects this short reign. The decoration in this tomb is very similar to KV62 (Tutankhamum) including the unique drawings of Baboons. One therory is that this tomb may have been...More

The tomb is not enormous, nor very lavish, however it is really worth a visit. You have to find a taxi driver who is prepared to take you up there. Some don't want the hassle, and it might be that you have to offer a...More
