Although King Tutankhamun's mummy is in residence and the limited decoration is amazing for me it did not live up to expectations

If I knew upfront what I'm going to tell you now then I wouldn't have paid extra to see the tomb of Tut. The tomb is small (in hindsight, he died young) and really not something out of the ordinary. There are nicer tombs out there in the Valley of Kings.

The tomb is in the Valley of the kings and easy to find. It is also one of the smallest. Don`t be disappointed by expecting too much. Tutankhamuns body is still there. Looks like a giant prune. If you look close you can see a tooth still and his toes. Watch the guy in there he will want money to... More

I would have to go in this tomb, just to say I had been there, but it is disappointing when you compare it to others. Tutankhamun's mummy is there, but not a lot else. Make sure you see 3 other tombs (you pay extra for Tutankhamun's tomb) while you are there as they are magnificent.

To begin with despite the fact that this is probably the most famous tomb in the Valley of the Kings, it is also one of the smallest. However, it's size cannot diminish it's importance and beauty. As you descent into the tomb you will pass the actual mummy of Tutankhamun inside a glass case. It is just incredible that here... More

Everyone knows that Tut was a very insignificant king, and his tomb reflects this. Nonetheless, because of the importance of the find, you should visit. It will cost an additional 100 Egyptian pounds(about 15 dollars at the time of writing), Two of the chambers are not accessible. And yes, the mummy is really him-it was in such bad condition, they...

I visited Tutankhamen and it was fabulous! It was my favorite tomb that I visited in the West Bank of Luxor. If I come back, I will definitely visit again!

It's very interesting and worth the trip, but all the good stuff is long gone. The boy King has a great tomb, but be sure to check out the Egyptian Museum in Cairo for his things !
