small tomb good colours on the walls, everyone visits this tomb, it is near the entrance to the vally of the kings.The tombs are very hot and there is not much air in them so you cannot spend a lot time in them.

We saw quite a few and this was definitely one of the best. Bit of a trek to get too but well worth well. Walls and ceiling covered in hieroglyphs - colours visible. Rameses III & Tutankhamen's tombs were also a must see.

Stepping back into history. It takes your breath away. The colours are still vivid after all the centuries. Much better then King Tuts tomb. Not to be missed

We had to pay a little more money to enter - E£50 (about £5 each) to get into this tomb. Absolutely worth it. The colour on the walls are magnificent and the detail put in incredible.

This is the best tomb in all of Luxor, and I believe it's the overall best tomb ever discovered in Egypt. The size of it, the vivid colors, the time it took to build it, just everything here gives you an overall picture of how amazing ancient Egypt was. This was the best landmark of my Luxor visit.

This tomb is a must see in the Valley of the Kings. The detail in the carvings and reliefs in all of the chambers is mind boggling.

This is one of the best tombs in the VOK. It is also a very typical example of the tombs from the pharaohs of this time and therefore, in my opinion, one of the tombs to go and visit when you are here. Nicely located on the main route between the buses and the small "center" outside Tut's tomb.

Words cannot describe how wonderful it is to step back in history and see the things most of us have been taught at school or seen on TV.
