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!

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
