“Is it worth it?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

It's hard to say really. You pay LE80 for entry into the Valley of the Kings which allows you in three tombs. The LE100 extra for Tutankhamun alone. As far as the tomb goes it's fairly small, two rooms are all that you get access to. The decoration is still visible, but there are many other tombs in the Valley of the Kings that are larger and more impressive to view. It's up to you really, you pay extra, to see not a lot, but you CAN say you've been in Tutankhamun's tombs. It's a personal choice.

“Not sure if worth the extra 100LE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I'm ambivalent. Historically significant. You see a mummy which is something different but there are much better and more interesting tombs included in the. 60 LE basic admission. as I say on my full review of VOK which should be rated excellent, my error, if on a budget give it a miss. That said, we paid to take the kids down.

“Dont bother - there are much better tombs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

You need an extra ticket for entry into this tomb and even without this I am not sure I would bother. I seriously doubt if this was ever designed as a royal tomb. Its small,nothing special and its always fill with adherents of the Mummy Films waiting to be cursed by something more heinous than an antiquities policeman demanding 'baksheesh; as he smokes an Egyptian cigarette in one hand and picks his nose with another. The valleys has some incredible tombs but this isn't one of them

“Wonderful Things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

You will be told, by well-meaning people, to skip this tomb. "It's small," they say, "and all the gold is at the museum in Cairo." Having been enthralled by the story of the discovery of the tomb of the "boy king" from an early age, I knew this was something I wanted to do anyway. The tomb is tiny, but the painting are beautifully preserved. It's also sadly fascinating that of all the discovered Pharaohs, Tutankhamun is the only one in his original resting place. We'd already been to the Egyptian Museum, and marveled at all that treasure fitting in the small rooms. Worth the extra money, if you are at all interested in archaeology and stories such as Howard Carter's.

“Tomb of King Tutankhamun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Amazing to see the original mummified remains. Although the basic entrance ticket to the site, will not get one into see it. So if your interested buy the ticket before you go in.
