Stakeholders in the Valley of the Kings include visitors, tour guides, site staff, and local communities. The views of all of these constituents were examined in a survey conducted in 2004. The study design, the survey instrument, and the data collected are described. The first stage of the survey was conducted on site. The respondents are described in terms of age, sex, nationality, frequency of visits to the Valley of the Kings, and specific tombs visited, and their opinions of the site management and the available services are reported. Their responses suggest a number of possible improvements to the visitor experience. Staff members and local residents similarly reported on their own experiences and problems. A second stage of the survey, conducted later in 2004, consisted of an online questionnaire directed to recent visitors to the Valley of the Kings.
