Worth the additional reasonably priced ticket. It is not expensive as Seti and Nefertary tombs. It is for two kings Ramses V and VI. The paintings and colors are wonderful. Not very crowded. We hired the local guard to explain to us and he was...More

Definitely worth the small extra fee and save one of your camera punches (3 punches/pass) for this tomb. Hieroglifics are better defined, with much better color than others. Of course the mummy and artifacts are long gone to museums around the world.

so much history, incredible architecture and craftsmanship, another stop on your egypt trip you shouldn’t miss. an eye opening journey to an area that just reading about doesn’t compare to seeing it in person.

Valley of the Kings was our favorite site in Egypt, even more than the Pyramids, and one of the best tombs is Ramses VI.

We were the only visitors inside and were shown some spooky details. There is definitely a 'strange' atmosphere.

Colors are bright and the images are all clear. You pay extra for this tomb, but we basically had it to ourselves as well which mad the experience all that much better. You do need to also buy the photo ticket to take pictures.

You had to pay Egyptian $100 extra to see but well worth the price. The ceiling on the sarcophagus room was amazing and worth the price of the ticket alone. Walls were bright white, compared to some others that were more dusty beige, with beautifully...More

It was very fascinating to see the paintings along the way to the grave where the pharaoh was buried , but it’s quite disappointing at the end to see an empty hole where the mummy used to lie. Tip: Be sure to ask your guide...More
