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.

The tomb for Ramses V and VI is in a very good shape and deserves the visit. You'll be able to see the perfect details of painting over wall sculptures, what almost vanished in Egypt. Also, there are 2 coffins in place. Mummies are not...More
