The ticket I bought gave me access to 3 tombs, and Ramses VI was supposed to be the #1 in the valley. Well-preserved wall art in in color. Wish one was allowed to take pics, but all cameras and video is banned even without flash (unless you want to pay hundreds of dollars for a pro license). They want tourists... More

The tomb is one of the best in the valley of the Kings. The artwork is very fine and the tomb large. It may cost a small fee to enter but is well worth it.

I didn't know what to expect but this was absolutely fabulous. It is a must see visit when you're in the area. You must go with a guide. It is incredible beyond belief.

Lovely tomb, nice detail inside, particularly the ceiling. Again take plenty of water and a nice hat to keep the beating sun off your face.

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
