It has been known since antiquity,the wonderful decorations include colourful painted sunken reliefs featuring the traditional ritual texts (Litany of Ra, Book of Gates etc) and Ramses before the gods. Unusual here are the secular scenes, in the small side rooms of the entrance corridor, showing foreign tributes, such as highly detailed pottery imported from the Aegean, the royal armoury, boats and, in the last of these side chambers, the blind harpists that gave the tomb one of its alternative names: ‘Tomb of the Harpers’

Tomb of Ramses IV
The tomb of Ramses IV (KV 2) in the Valley of the Kings is rather different than most other tombs built here. This tomb is by far the most spectacular of the other tombs you will see. The hieroglyphics on the wall depict scenes from the Litany of Ra, Book of the Dead, Book of Caverns, the Book of the Heavens, Book of Amduat, and the Book of the Night. The blue and white colors on the walls inside the burial chamber are very vibrant and you can see the king's sarcophagus made of rose-colored granite. There is also a beautiful scene of goddess Nut on the ceiling, where she is depicted swallowing the sun, and it traveling through her stomach, for Nut to give birth to it.

The tomb has so much colour and detail even the ceiling above the sarcophagi with its goddess Nut stretching across the space. The sarcophagus is one of the largest in the valley, even though some of the paintings have deteriorated this is one of the most decorated

Reviews

Khalid is extremely knowledgeable. He is an Egyptologist that has so many details about the sites. Car had very cold AC
Lara W, 12-06-2022
Khalid is very knowledgeable and knows so many facts. He is an Egyptologist that is obviously very proud of his heritage. We learned so much today. The driver, also Khalid was very good, always right there waiting with the brand new car that had awesome AC. Lunch was plentiful and delicious. Khalid knew exactly when the timing was good for entrance to each site, minimizing crowd exposure. I actually toured Nefertari’s tomb ALL alone. It was surreal. No other tourists. Very good experience. Recommend to everyone!
Visit to the Valley of the King's and Queen's
Straussfamilytravels, 10-04-2022
Nefertari's tomb was the highlight. Our guide Ahmed Eziz was great at changing the itinerary to avoid the crowds so we didn't have to wait too long in line at the tombs. Ahmed was also very good at providing a lot of information but keeping a good pace so the kids didn't get bored. Lunch was included and it was the best meal we have had in our 10 days in Egypt.
Outstanding

Sarah S, 02-09-2021
This tour was amazing! I feel like I saw most of the highlights of Luxor. I really wanted to see Nefertari’s tomb, which did not disappoint — it was so well preserved that it looks like it was painted just yesterday. My guide Ash was great; he very informative and answered all my questions. And lunch was pretty good. I’d suggest this tour to anyone, particularly if you want to see Nefertari’s tomb!
Fantastic Tour

We were lucky to have Ahmed as our guide, as he was incredibly knowledgeable. As a trained guide with nearly twenty years experience, he was able to explain all of the sites, with very interesting stories, and easily answered all of our questions. Everything was made easy, as we were picked up from the train station, and dropped off at our hotel afterwards. Lunch was also included, and very delicious. I highly recommend this tour!
