Deir el-Medina (Valley of the Artisans) Tours and Activities

star-5
168 Reviews

Creating the Valley of the Kings was no simple undertaking: a small army of builders, engineers, engravers and other workers was required to carve the dozens of tombs out of sheer rock over the centuries.

Naturally they all had to be housed somewhere, ideally not too far away. But it was only with the discovery of Deir el-Medina (Valley of the Artisans), around the time of the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb, that we learnt more about their living conditions.

The outlines of the “workmen’s village” are still clearly visible, and extant reliefs offer a fascinating portrait of everyday life. All of this makes Deir el-Medina a pleasant change after countless monuments glorifying the pharaohs and their morbid fixation on the afterlife.

In Egypt you should never assume and never presume anything. You are now entering a world where logic seldom prevails. It's up to you to decide - wander and ponder or play it safe? Egypt is a country where you want to talk with someone who knows how everything works, the fastest time to get from A to B, can tell you what you are looking at - and where to find anything special that you are looking for in a temple. It's a country where it really is a good idea to have someone organise your transport and be willing to adapt to your wishes where and when it is possible, but also who is honest enough to tell you when something is not worth your time. That is me! And I have been doing it for so long now that it is totally natural and instinctive in me to understand what you are looking for, even if you can't actually put it into words. Our tour today is magnificent. you will get an emotional, almost teary reaction of being in the presence of something timeless
