Some of the tombs are rather disappointing; ravaged by time and the dirty finger of tourists who can't keep their mitts to themselves. For a look a tomb that unique and off the beaten path however, check out Ramses mountainside burial site -- dug high upon the slope and burrowed into the mountain. Harder to find and get to (step...

The ceilings in this Tomb are some of the highest in Kings Valley. Luckily this Tomb was open (for a small supplement) and the colouring and hieroglyphics are truly impressive. The sarcophagus sadly had been smashed to pieces and attempts have been made to restore it to the original state but a large proportion has been lost to eternity.

This is one of the best tombs in the Valley of the Kings, with beautiful wall paintings and startlingly vibrant colors. Watch out for the snakes (cobras on the walls)!

The visit is short and the walls in the entrance are full of stories, you need to wear a walking shoes to feel comfortable as all historic areas needs lots of movements. the tour guide offers good information in all languages and you can buy books and maps too.

This was one of the better preserved tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The colours are vivid and its gives you an impression of how beautiful the tomb must have been back in the day.

The ticket I bought gave me access to 3 tombs, and Ramses VI was supposed to be the #1 in the valley. Well-preserved wall art in in color. Wish one was allowed to take pics, but all cameras and video is banned even without flash (unless you want to pay hundreds of dollars for a pro license). They want tourists... More

The tomb is one of the best in the valley of the Kings. The artwork is very fine and the tomb large. It may cost a small fee to enter but is well worth it.

I didn't know what to expect but this was absolutely fabulous. It is a must see visit when you're in the area. You must go with a guide. It is incredible beyond belief.
