You have to pay an extra £10 to visit this tomb but it is well worth it! The tomb is small but brilliant and his body is there. I wouldn't of left without going inside... Well worth every penny!

Several times our guide told us that some people find this tomb disappointing, because you have to pay extra to visit and the famous death mask and coffins aren't there! How they can feel like this is beyond me, the boy kings body is laying there for you to see, as well as one of his coffins laying in state,... More

On entering the Valley of the Kings and obtaining your ticket you will be charged extra to see the Tuts tomb. Easy access and easy to view. Small compared to the others. His body is there. No photos allowed. Not much to see and definitely no comparison to the other tombs

Nice setting, historical piece of Egyptology, however those wanting to see king Tut face-to-mask should remember that the famous mask and his treasure are on show in Cairo, Midan Tharir...

Beware folks, this, one of the greatest attractions in Egypt, may soon be out of bounds. A replica, and it is an excellent one, is ready, and the original Tutenkhamun’s tomb, the only royal tomb from ancient Egypt to be found intact, will have restricted expensive entry. Actually, it is not a bad thing, for the rate at which visitors... More

Dont make the mistake of going all the way to the Valley of the Kings and not paying the extra to go into Tut's tomb! It was the smallest one of the all the ones we got to see, but all the colours and drawings on the walls are by far the best and obviously you get to see Tut... More

When Howard Carter found these tombs, he must have been more than a little excited, and you can se why. There is possibly more information gleaned from this one tomb than from any of the others and you can see why. Our guide gave us much info which corralated to the books about this young king and his death. The... More

Don't let anyone ever tell you it's not worth it to pay the extra ~$10USD to see King Tut's tomb. Yes, it is very small in comparison to other tombs. But IT'S KING TUT'S TOMB! And it's the only tomb with an actual mummy inside. King Tut's sarcophagus is inside, too. Rumor has it authorities are considering locking up Tut's... More

We paid the extra to see the tomb because we flew half way around the world to go to Egypt...it was worth it. It's a small tomb but there is a mummy inside and that made it worth it to me. While Tut died young and there isn't a lot of history there...the tomb is the most significant because it... More
