I read the TripAdvisor reviews both pro/con about people saying it wasn't worth it, they were sorry they didn't go in, they were glad they went in...
I decided to enter King tut's Tomb on June 28, 2013 knowing the reviews. I was thrilled and very excited to be standing in King Tut's Tomb! Yes, it is two small rooms. In comparison to the other tombs I entered in the Valley of the Kings this was not an adventure to trek into BUT it IS King Tut's Tomb.
I saw the Mummy of King Tut. I gazed in wonder and briefly daydreamed about the moment that this tomb was opened almost 100 years ago. I imagined all of the artifacts I saw days earlier in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Wow - this is the tomb! I've wasted more money then the cost of admission to enter this tomb and got a whole lot less.
You may not "get" the most fantastic paintings on the wall - although I loved the golden wall with all the baboons! You may not have a long journey deep into this tomb. You aren't allowed to take pictures. This is merely about the location. I don't think it is fair to try to compare this with other tombs.
Before you decide to pass up the opportunity ask yourself...When will I return to this opportunity again?
By the way - certainly pay the additional fee to enter Rameses VI tomb right near King Tut Tomb. The walls and ceiling are very beautiful.
