As others have said, this is extra cost, but worth it. The colours and the paintings are amazing. The intricate detail in the hieroglyphics is mind-boggling, particularly given the scale of the tomb. Very worthwhile as an addition to the three 'normal' tombs that you are allowed with an entrance ticket.

It's worth the extra fee to enter. This is one of the best tombs in the VoK. The interior is just stunning.

Awesome experience, among the best tombs to visit. Note that we only took 15 minutes inside but people with more knowledge may be spending more.

No one would read a TripAdvisor review before deciding to go inside. Why did you come to Egypt? Jaw dropping and unique on earth.

Mental is the word to describe this. Absolutely jaw dropping. I am not exaggerating when I say this is the most incredible artwork I’ve ever seen.

10/10 a life changing experience

Worth every cent, especially as there were fewer people there.

This is one of the prettiest tombs in the Valley. It requires an extra ticket but worth it since you've traveled all the way to Egypt already.

This tomb has been cleaned and restored using the methods that were perfected during the restoration of Queen Nefertari's tomb. It is an easy one to visit, not strenuous but has strong colors. Be sure to look up as you walk in. There is a long representation of the Goddess Nut on the ceiling before you arrive at the burial chamber. The burial chamber is magnificent - both the walls and ceiling. If you visit only one tomb in the KV, this is the one to visit.

Queen Nefertari's Tomb in the Valley of Queens was the best, Ramses Tomb was the best of the rest. The tomb is very deep and richly adorned.

The best preserved and I believe largest tomb in the Valley of the Kings and best saved til last. It’s a long way down but well worth it.

Ms Ghada with Egypt Tailor Made took care of us over 5 days of tours around Luxor and this was one of them- She is amazing!

The site is amazing - these were some of the most beautifully preserved and colorful tombs artwork. We were just amazed. Do not miss it.
