Just like most things in Luxor, this is a must see. Whether you find it amazing or find it disappointing, to say you have been is well worth the £10 entry fee. The tomb is smaller than the other 3 you see, and you go down steps instead of a ramp. His body is on the left and the room... More

Naturally this was the most expensive of the tombs to visit, but in my opinion was disappointing. It was the smallest and least impressive of the 3 tombs we visited and there was no wow factor apart from whose tomb it was.

If you're there it is a must see. But I will say IMHO I was disappointed. I thought it would be an amazing experience but I just didn't get the vibes I expected. Walk in, look at this little shelf on the left where his mummy was, look at a large empty room where the treasures were; that's about it.... More

I was disappointed. For the cost of 100 EGP to enter I expected to see more. It was a small room. Save the entry cost it was over rated. The display to see is at the Cairo museum

It is just one of those things you have to do even though there is an extra charge to see this tomb. Why come this far and skip it? It is wonderful!

So the Tomb of King Tut isn't anything more to look at then all the rest of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings - in reality, some of the other tombs have far better walls and decoration to look at. Please note that all the treasure and mummy are elsewhere. If you are in the Valley of the... More
