This is by far the most beautiful of all tombs at the valley of the kings, you can keep gazing at the ceiling for hours, colours are simply amazing and you can stay in awe for long hours

Simply stunning tomb- entry is not included in the entry ticket for the valley of the Kings. This was, however, the best one we saw- glad we paid extra.

Well worth a visit to the Valley of the Kings just to see this, probably one of the best tombs which has some amazing massive rooms with well-preserved vibrant colour and detail from thousands of years ago. A must see.

The most amazing colors and details in this large tomb. The ceiling is the legend of Nut giving birth to the sun every morning. I was hyperventilating. A dream come true!

This is the best tomb that we saw in the Valley of the Kings. It is very big and each room is fully painted with paint from thousands of years ago and it was still vibrant.

Yes, spectacular wall and roof painting/carvings but many other tombs are almost as good and the 50% extra charge to visit this single tomb cannot really be justified.

A great tomb in the valley of the kings, remember that you aren't allowed to take pictures in the tombs- you will get caught

Amazing colour's still in tact and all the carvings also. Again no queues - so good time to go. Again no photo's allowed which is a crying shame, but understand why the rule has to be in place.
