How can you visit the Valley of the Kings without seeing the most important site ever discovered. Answer: You can't. There's an additional fee to see King Tut's final resting place but in terms of Egyptian pounds and historical significance... it's nothing to fret over--go see it; you'll brag to all your friends that you did.

King Tut's tomb was the only tomb found in tact. I really didn't get really excited about any other part of the Valley of the Kings except for this. You have to pay extra to go see it which I think is most definitely worth it. Most of his valuables have been relocated to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (which... More

Save your money and breath. This place is underwhelming and overhyped. To make it worse, the guard inside will want a tip.

It costs an extra 100 EL, which is not all that much (about $14), but there is almost nothing to see in the two rooms below. There is one of the sarcophagi of King Tut, but everything that Howard Carter discovered is now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

King Tut's tomb is much smaller than the others we visited in the Valley of the Kings, and there is an additional charge of around $15 to see it. Although by far most of the artifacts and treasure are now in museums, three things stood out. One was the granite sarcophagus, which is incredibly beautiful. Second were the stunning paintings...

poor tomb, as all know king tut died young and his tomb wasnt completed and that is clearly visible . as all the treasures found in his tomb are in the cairo museum , its worth giving this a miss. also ridiculously priced on the back of the hype the treasures have created and not included in the standard 3...

clearly, when you have 62 tombs to look at, tut would not rank on top. But / its the story that unfolded exactly there, and this story is BIG so you better have a look.

It costs 100 Egyptian pounds to see the tomb of Tutankhamun but its only his mummified body and the tomb, it takes 5 minutes to see and isn't suitable for anyone with walking disabilities.

Do ensure that you are physically fit for the climb down and up into the tomb. There say no pictures yet there are a lot of people taking pictures. Try to visit early in the morning or late afternoon as then the sun will not be as hot. Ignore the touts and sellers bugging you like flies trying to sell... More
