The Valley Of The Queens is located on the Western Bank with the Mountain Of Thebes providing a natural pyramid in the background. It is located on the southern edge of the Theban necropolis.

It is about 1 1/2 KM SouthWest of The Valley Of The Kings. Ancient Egyptians called it "Set Neferu" meaning Seat Of Beauty.

Only a few of the eighty tombs are open to the public. During the 18th Dynasty princes and queens were buried in the valley, while in the 19th Dynasty only queens were buried here.

We Were Not Permitted To Use Flash Photography Inside The Tombs And The Tombs Are Kept Dark To Avoid Damage To The Paintings.

The Cairo International Airport (IATA: CAI, ICAO: HECA) is the busiest airport in Egypt and is located to the north-east of the city around 15 km from the business area of the city.

Cairo International is the second busiest airport in Africa with over 65 airlines using the Cairo airport (including charter airlines) and 9 cargo airlines. With the assimilation of EgyptAir into Star Alliance in July 2008 the airport has the potential to be a major hub with its positioning between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. In 2008, the airport served 14,360,175 passengers and it is one of the top 100 airports in the world.

The airport handles both domestic and international flights, and is open 24 hours a day.

We suggest flying into Cairo and staying in one of their many fine hotels when touring Cairo and the ruins in the surrounding areas.

We have links on this page that will connect you with flights into Cairo and several of the best hotels in Cairo.

A second option is to fly directly to Aswan.

The Aswan International Airport (IATA: ASW, ICAO: HESN), also known as Daraw Airport, is the airport located in Aswan, Egypt. You can arrange flights directly to Aswan, If you wish.

A third option is to fly directly to Luxor.

Luxor International Airport (IATA: LXR, ICAO: HELX) is the main airport serving the city of Luxor, Egypt. It is located about four miles (6km) east of the city.

Many charter airlines use the airport, as it is a popular tourist destination for those visiting the River Nile and the Valley of the Kings.

After getting a flight and a hotel we suggest asking your hotel concierge to arrange either a car or a tour of the Valley Of The Queens, Valley of the Kings, Karnak, Luxor, Aswan, or the Cairo area. If you call their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this when traveling in Egypt. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem, doing it this way!
