amazing tomb, how something like this is still standing after all this time blows me away, some hieroglyphics in parts worn away but the majority are still there and just take time to stand there and appreciate it all, ignore the men as you go in the tomb, they will try to con you saying you can use a camera...

Another tomb in the Valley of the Kings worth visiting, if you are there you might as well do all of them , a good guide can explain the history in detail .

As all the tombs in the Valley of the Kings this tomb is very impressive. This tomb is especially large and very breathtaking.

This was the most impressive of the tombs we visited. I am always amazed at the talent and artistic ability of the ancient Egyptians. The tour guide explained much of what we were seeing and made it "come alive" for us. Bring a camera and some water as it is very hot and little shade.

I visited 6 tombs in the Valley of the Kings, this was easily the best of them. A ticket for visiting 3 tombs can be purchased at the ticket office for 100 Egyptian pounds, Ramses 6 tomb required a separate ticket costing 50 Egyptian pounds. I would advise visitors to Valley of the Kings to buy the Ramses 6 ticket... More

This place was absolutely mind blowing. Located in the desert there are 63 tombs cut into the ground belonging to the pharaohs. This one is amongst them. Photographs are not allowed. Guides are not allowed inside. Look at the explanation outside. The engravings inside dating to 1500 BC are just a sight to behold. This one is well preserved. Visit... More

The walls are all so well decorated with hieroglyphic writings like as if it is children's room. The paintings are so fresh as if they were painted yesterday. Photography is strictly prohibited

Part of the big tour around Valley Of The Kings. Hieroglyphics are clear and stunning. Best if you have an Egyptologist with you for information. Try to go early morning or late afternoon as it is hot in the middle of the day.

If you are going to pay extra for one tomb, skip Tut's and go to Ramses VI. I think you have to pay about $8 or so and it's well worth it. This tomb has one of the most amazing burial chambers and the halls and rooms leading down to it are full of amazing art. Next to Nefertari's and... More
