Whether you're interested in Egyptian history or not, you can't visit Luxor without taking some time out to visit the Valley of the Kings. All the tombs are works of art but this one takes the biscuit as the most famous. However it's not the grandest of tombs and I was really surprised at the miniature size of it compared... More

After all the hype I was very surprised to see there is so little to see! I felt for all the trouble and expense you may Abe better off viewing the exact same thing at Cater House at the reproduction of the inner chamber of the Kings Tomb.

Ok, the thought is: as I came all the way to the Valley of Kings, how could I skip this tomb??? Exaclty our thought, so we paid the extra 100 Egyptian pounds (ridicolously expensive, IMHO) and visited it. There you'll find his mummy (the only one in the Valley), a boy-sized blackened body, a sarcophagus (quite nice) and these real-size... More

I was in awe of this tomb, it was so small as it was made in a short time, I felt very sad that a King should die so young, there is definitely a feeling in this tomb of greatness for a boy King. We visited the museum to see his mask, coffins etc......it,s a must see.

A very small tomb. everything is now in the musueam, but the mummy is still there. it doesnt look as good as the other tombs, and the tour guide always advises against going in. but it is definitely worth it.

It costs an extra 100LE just to see Tutankhamun's tomb but for me it was money well spent. It isn't a very big tomb and definitely not the prettiest but just to stand in the same room as the body of the most famous ancient egyptian king made me feel really priviledged. If you're the sort of person that thinks... More
