One of the most famous Egyptian King, Tutankhamun. Back in the day, he does not have any power, so his tomb is very small. But he is the famous figure!! Why don't you visit his tomb? It is tiny, but I could feel the historic moment.

OK so I mentioned this in another review, but this team is very small and considerably expensive… And pretty much everything that was in it has been taken out. However, it is well worth the visit if you spend a good 10 or 15 minutes before hand reading up on the paintings in the walls. The whole thing takes on... More

A lot of people say not to visit this tomb because it is small and the artwork isn't up to the same standard as some of the other tombs in the Valley of the Kings. However, the size of the place is actually one of the reasons to see it. Most people have been to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo... More

There's no other tomb on earth that is this well known, yet still so mysterious. Even if you've visited countless other Egyptian tombs, visiting King Tut's resting place somehow feels different. You feel privileged to be standing in the chamber- almost as though you've stepped back in time. It's not a long visit, but it's certainly worth it.

Very Interesting history and was worth while the visit even if its only once in your lifetime. However too many touts and locals annoying you in the vicinity trying to get you to pay for services like guides and souvenirs which are not authentic. Place could do with more refreshment stalls and genuine approved souvenir shops by the local tourism... More

It's an impressive tomb, for sure, but in a strange way was a bit of a let down as the vast majority of the interesting things are now in the Cairo museum! I think there are better tombs and sites to see hence wouldn't particularly rate this one if you have limited time. More famous for not being ransacked than... More

When we arrived at the Valley of the Kings, we couldn't imagine that one of the three open tombs to visit was Tut's Tomb. It was fantastic to see the King, as well. I Do recommend this place.
