The tomb of Ramesses V/VI is the second only in size to the closed tomb of Seti I in Kings Valley. Hugely important to the development of funeral texts in the New Kingdom, Ramesses VI is visually stunning. Beautifully carved and painted corridors lead to a huge white barrel-vaulted ceilinged burial chamber. Texts and images glow in the electric lights.... More

Well preserved and a great tomb to get a feel of how it must have been for the Pharaohs and the Kings and what they intend to built.

We had to buy extra tickets (only 50 or so Egyptian pounds) to visit this tomb and it was absolutely worth it. This tomb is large and completely painted from top to bottom. This is one of the best tombs to visit. A lot of tourists go to the Tomb of King Tut next door, hence this tomb is relatively... More

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...
