Most of our group were on the fence about paying the extra E£300 to visit King Tut’s tomb, as we felt burned at paying E£400 to go into the Great Pyramid at Giza. However, I’m pleased to say that we were all glad we did, mainly because we got to see the King himself (in mummified form, of course). The tomb is smaller than most others in the Valley of Kings, since Tut died around the age of 19, so there was so much less time to finish the full tomb, but it’s still ornately decorated and one can take pictures of his majesty.

The boy-king Tutankhamun died in 1324 BC at the age of 19, after ruling for about 10 years. Entrance to Tut’s tomb is not included in the admission price. You must purchase a separate ticket at the Visitors Center. Most of the tomb’s treasures are on display in the Cairo Museum, which I’d seen a few days earlier. What’s special here is that the tomb contains the mummy of King Tut! His red quartzite sarcophagus is also on display. The yellow-gold colored walls of the burial chamber contain images of King Tut before the gods. One end wall is decorated with scenes of the pharaoh’s funeral. The opposite wall contains the 12 squatting apes from the Book of Amduat, representing the 12 hours of the night. There was only one other person in the tomb with me. The tomb itself is small and other tombs are more elaborate, and yes, admission is pricey. But for me, it was a highlight of my trip. No way would I travel so far and miss the tomb of the most well-known pharaoh of current times!

This is an absolute must see! There is an extra charge to see this tomb as it is not among the ones that you can choose for your three choices. Cell phone photos are allowed. This tomb was the last tomb that was discovered, in the year 1922. It contained all the fabulous treasures which are now housed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and a few in the Luxor Museum. His mummy is in the tomb in its gilded wooden coffin and you are allowed to take cell phone photos of the mummy. The burial chamber walls are highly decorated but small in comparison to the other tombs in the valley.

If you want to see King Tut's tomb you will have to pay extra, E100 or about US$6. Compared to the other tombs, Tut's is shockingly small, only two small chambers. His mummy, without any gold finery, is still here in a glass case as it is too fragile to move to Cairo. The paintings on the burial chamber walls are beautiful, but compared to the other tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Tut's tomb is shockingly small. But for US$6, I am glad we saw it. Worth seeing it as an extra tomb, but see the others first, as they are much more impressive and beautiful. The rules just changed, so you are allowed to take photos with your cellphone.

As of June 2021, most of the King Tut treasures are upstairs at the Egyptian Museum (to be moved to the Grand Egyptian Museum when it is completed). But this tomb is a great addition to your Tut experience—you’ll see how small it was to still be crammed with so much treasure, and you’ll see the actual mummy and one of the sarcophagi is still there. There’s also some vivid painting on the walls. It’s a quick visit, but for us it was worth the price. And if you want MORE Tut, the new Hurghada Museum also has a case of incredibly pristine Tut artifacts.

You need to pay extra 300 LE Egyptian Pound (20 USD) to enter and meet Mr. Tut. But trust me it is totally worthy. This is a chance of a life time to meet a King 3500 years old.

To come all the way to Egypt, visit the exhibition in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and then get to the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and not see his tomb and mummy would have been a shame. You must pay an extra fee for admission to this tomb but, let's face it, Tut is one of the most famous Pharaohs.
It is a small tomb with impressive paintings and colors.
Also got great photos.

All but the granite sarcophagus and the mummy remain as all the contents have been removed and mostly as in Cairo. Regardless, pay the fee and see the beautiful Tomb of Tutankhamun. The wall paintings are bright and extremely well preserved.

This one is famous and everybody wants to see King Tuts MUMMY. But the crowds really diminish the experience. It was so crowded and hot with so many people in the tomb, it was hard to see everything. They even have a team to take you up to VK, just like Disneyland...

Everyone has heard of King Tut and seen his treasures, so it would be sad to miss the tomb. Yes, it;s very small with little ar work. But you see his mummy and see where it all happened. The artwork is lovely.
