“He can't be that old”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

all that I can say is he looks real good for his age. The walls in the tomb are so well preserved. They try and keep you moving so they can get every one through, but if you smile nice to the guards it helps to linger a little longer

“The Boy King”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Not to be missed as his ceremonial sarcophagus is something to see in all it's magnificence. It makes you realise how wondrous yet dangerous the times were.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

During the summer months and especially mid day visits most dainty toursits are indoor ;-) take your time and say hello to the boy king. His actual body was in the tomb when we were there in 2008. Let your kids soak this in slowly. Give it plenty of time. Carry lots water...or buy expensive one there. Always haggle.
