Very well preserved, beautiful and curious place. Besides the ticket to enter in the valley, you need to buy an extra ticket to see this tomb. Worth every pound.

The hieroglyphs are the most amazing aspect of the tomb with their stories. It is surreal as the ancient Egyptians loved to write and set out their narratives. The tomb itself where I believe the smallest of the sarcophagus's remains is best visited after you first tour the King Tut exhibit in the Cairo Egyptian Museum of Antiquities. Then and... More

The tomb is very small, it is cool to see the little guy but no pictures allowed, and you have to go to Cairo to see the treasures..

If you have time and it's on your bucket list, then by all means, check it out. King Tut is the celebrity pharoah! Kids might like the novelty of seeing the mummy. And if you won't get a chance to visit the Egyptian museum (which has two of his three nesting coffins), you can see his coffin here. But if... More

The tomb is very small, with the remains under glass and the sarcophagus split to allow a view into the inners of the coffin. Definitely worth a visit for the beautiful decorations in the burial chamber which were being restored by archaeologists during our visit, and also to realise how small the boy king was when he died at 19.

You'll need to pay extra but the tomb still has his mummy on show, rather than it being carted off to Cairo Museum.

You really should see this. Tomb is small and as they said insignificant.It is worth the visit just to say you have seen it. Poor Tutankhamun lies there for all to see. Try to pay your respects as you leave, it seems to be the decent thing to do.

Some people say it is not worth it, because it is smaller that other tombs with less carving. I am so happy I did not pay attention to this and paid the EGP 200 to visit. Once you enter the mummy is there and the sarcophagus. They were working on the wall that they are analising to determine if it... More

The read tomb is going to be closed soon to the public. Our guide said probably in the next year or so.

How can you not stop in to see Tut? From all of the tombs that they have discovered, his is the only one that still has his mummy in it. The artwork is gorgeous, and it's an easy tomb to get down into, with very few stairs, so good for less active people. Photos are not allowed, and they do... More
