All I can say about this fascinating tomb is GO. I have visited this tomb 3 times spending at least an hour each time to study the remarkable and unusual scenes. There appears to be a helicopter perching on top of a figure located on the right hand wall of the burial chamber. You have to lean out over the... More

Just the restoration of the hieroglyphics is an amazing and jaw dropping feat to be witnessed and appreciated . Its a deep tomb and unfortunately has been pilfered over the preceding centuries , but none the less its a must see and well worth it going out of the way for if you are into this sort of thing.

Like everything in Luxor, beautiful, We never got up close, we just saw this from the road on bicycles. There is so much to see in Luxor, it's hard to decide what to spend time at.

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.
