A small tomb, but very impressive. To see king tuts mummy was a extra bonus. Felt very overwhelmed to be in there. A very memorable experience. But be warned, the tomb guard begs for money.

I guess this place is one of the reasons that you visit the Valley of the Kings, it's probably the most well known of the Pharaohs, so please remember that the artefacts that were removed by Howard carter and Lord Caernarvon in 1922 are largely in the Cairo Museum or other location worldwide, so this is just about where the...

To enter the Tomb itself, they let in about 7 people at a time, to avoid overcrowding in an enclosed area. We were lucky that day as the 'Boy King' was there... BUT MY WIFE WOULD NOT LEAVE, first group left & the next group entered... But she still insisted that she would stay a little longer and TAKE IN... More

Still inside his tiny, compared to others, tomb. His gold furnishings may have been to make due for his tiny tomb. The paintings are the most impressive of those I've seen in the Valley. A take away memory was the King's oh so delicate toes, after All these century's

You go down a small shaft into a small room with the mummy to your left and are shown his legs ( one is longer than the other). On the right is another small room with the kings sarcophagus. Decoration can be seen on the wall but it is a small tomb compared to the others

Very little tomb with very little decoration - but what decoration! Vivid and clear in colours and as all other Egyptian art heavy in symbolism - in this tomb with a tender tone to it. The beautiful sarcophagus with one of the caskets are there and the mummy of the pharao as well. Nice touch that he is back in... More

A must see. You still get the feeling of the Carter team when they first broke through. The body is where it should be and makes you stop and think. Small tomb, but one of the best.

We all know of the name King Tutenkhamen better than all the other pharaohs so its a thing we must visit . The holders at the gate also know of its appeal so charge an extra 14 $ to see it. The tomb is not as big as some of the others and today the treasures found inside are in... More

Considering the greatest treasure of all was out of this tomb is a shock when you see inside ,it's small and not much drawn inside but remember he died only 19yrs old hence the tomb .but it's still the mighty tomb of a great young famous pharaoh ,must be seen

This is a must see, we all know of King Tut, when we visited The Valley of the Kings it was our priority tomb to see. There are I would say more interesting larger tombs to see, but with all King Tut,s publicity you have to be able to say "I was there". There is an extra cost to see... More
