Sure, everyone who comes here is going to visit this tomb, but it's one of the smallest and least impressive. If you do visit, stick your head around the side of the burial chamber, the most impressive art-work is there and most people won't ever notice it!

The young King is still preserved down here and it is surreal seeing him. Well worth the visit to see the youth that brought Eygptian history to the worlds attention for all the right reasons.

good trip and good sights but be careful very exposed desert with soaring heat ,train ride in little open carriages from coach drop point to the region of the tomb as coach wheels would never make it all that sand ,take a hat ,sun lotion and water ++ exhausting day but wouldn't have missed it

Small tomb,Tutankhamun is in his sarcophagus.You can look at his body, and all the paintings on the walls. You have to pay extra to see this tomb.Well worth a visit.

As we have been to Luxor 5 times & been to the Valley we did not go in May, We did go to Howard Carters house and they have built a replica of Tutankhamuns Tomb which is well worth the visit

if you take it for what it is and how long ago all this was done it is fantastic, but again you have to pay extra to see it on top of the tour.

We would not have left without seeing it. Paid the extra to go in - there is a musty smell - told it was mould but no problem. Tutankhamen's tomb is much smaller and different in layout to the other tombs and not as ornate but we were in awe. We had seen his mask and tomb contents in Cairo... More

I never thought I would see the King himself; it is good he has been returned to his rightful place. The tomb is fantastic, with s much detail. I definitely recommend a visit. Just a friendly warning: do not take anything from the people at the tomb entrance (e.g. a torch) as you will be expected to pay for it.... More

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!
