One of the representative of valley of the kings. My guide put his emphasis on Ramses VI. You should take bottles of water too. Some of the tombs smell bad, but not as bad as the pyramids in Giza.

It's not the biggest nor the best known tomb within the King's valley, but it did strike me as awesome. I did not have the chance to visit the tombs of Seti I or Ramses II. So far, this is my favorite.

the tombs were all-round fantastic. as a kid, one of the places i had always dreamed of visiting was egypt, and the place certainly lived up to its hype. the only irritation - as with all popular tourist destinations - were the sheer numbers of hawkers, like horse-carriage drivers that hounded us. fun experience though!

the tomb itself is nice but we found inside a working site (they are probably doing something with the lights, we don't know) so all the magic was gone.... Too bad, if we had known about it, we'd have probably skipped it for next time...

It,s a must to see the tomb, all tombs are different and it is interesting to hear the history of RamsesV1 from the guide.

Visited here at the beginning of June as part of a private tour. We were allowed in three tombs, i would have liked more but they need to close some of them to protect the designs inside (so our tour guide says!) Our guide explained alot about the history of the tombs but wasnt allowed to come inside with us.... More
