If you've gone to the trouble of getting to the Valley of the Kings then you can't not visit Tuts tomb. It's not big. Only one room. Steps are steep. You can't take video cameras in but you can check them in at the top. No photographs same as the other tombs. BUT there is the sarcophagus in there with... More

As others have said, if you are visiting the King Tut collection in the Egyptian Museum, you must visit his tomb. The decorations are superb, although some would baulk at paying an extra 100LE to see this tomb.

King Tuts tomb is alot smaller than most in the Valley of the Kings, and if youv'e ever seen his treasures in The Cairo Museum you wonder how it could have all fitted in. The mummy and sarcofaghus are amazing displays in this beautifully decorated chamber. I've given this a very good rating rather than an excellent one because I... More

Tomb is amazing as Tut's mummy is on display on the left and the carved granite tomb on the right. Seems so small to me and more so when you see the huge volume of treasures from the tomb on display in the Cairo Museum! Beautiful paintings still visible on the walls, yet time is taking its toll as mold... More

This tomb is small but cute! It was probably the only intact tomb of an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh. King Tutankhamun's mummy is on display inside, along with the gilded and painted walls of the Tomb.

You read about King Tut all your life, in school, in books. It never really hits you until you walk into his tomb. It takes your breath away. His body is to the left and his dwelling to the right. A quick bribe will always get you far in Luxor and this tomb is no exception. A few pounds will... More

It is one of the only tombs that is open year round in The Valley of The Kings however like most tombs it is empty. What you will see is his mummy and the hieroglyphs but not much else. You will have to go the Museum of Antiquities in Cairo to see the full collection of King Tut items.

A small tomb, but very impressive. To see king tuts mummy was a extra bonus. Felt very overwhelmed to be in there. A very memorable experience. But be warned, the tomb guard begs for money.

I guess this place is one of the reasons that you visit the Valley of the Kings, it's probably the most well known of the Pharaohs, so please remember that the artefacts that were removed by Howard carter and Lord Caernarvon in 1922 are largely in the Cairo Museum or other location worldwide, so this is just about where the...
