When I travelled to Luxor to visit my in laws, they sent me to different places there which I love. The weather, the People and specially the Food! But one of the best place and highly I recommend is the Valley of the Kings where the Tomb of King Tut is located. Its a very huge place and lots of... More

If you visit the Valley of The Kings you must go to see this, it does cost more but it is well worth the visit.

A very small and plain tomb for the Kings valley and an extra 100LE ticket, but for me it was a pilgrimage. Standing in the Amin chamber imagining all the treasure it held, gave me goose bumps. Tutankhamun is resting in the tomb in a glass case, but I do feel that he should be in his coffin as he... More

Ok I know it is small and not as impressive as the other tombs, but if you are there it is a must. I have always wanted to see it so I am happy. It was this discovery that ignited, for a lot of the people the interest in Egyptology. The pictures on the walls are easy to see and... More

There are other much more impressive tombs. Tut was a kid who reigned only for a short time and didn't accomplish much. The only reason he is famous today is because his tomb was discovered intact with all its treasures and not robbed. (He just got lucky in other words.)

If you're there you've got to do it - but no where near as impressive as some of the other tombs. Pity most of the artifacts are in Cairo but still worth going. He's tiny!

You've heard the story about finding the tomb entrance and seeing the room stuffed with treasures. Although the sarcophagus is still there, without the treasures, it's just a quite small couple of rooms cut in the rock. No where near as impressive as nearby tombs with long corridors fully decorated. Visit the Cairo museum to see the treasures found in... More

All tombs are great but this one is unique by exhibiting the mummy of king Tut. Usually it is not included in kings valley visits unless mentioned clearly by travel agent. But it's worth the extra money.

It is a very small tomb and there is only a small amount of decoration but it is lovely to see King Tutankhamun still in his final resting place.

Yes, the contents of the tomb (in the Egyptian Antiquities museum in Cairo) are amazing and world class, and the tomb has historical significance, but as a tourist sight, the particular tomb is third rate at best. The boy king died young, and was a puppet for much of the time, and very little effort was put into the tomb... More
