One of the main reasons for choosing Egypt was to see Tomb of King Tutankhamen. Your entry ticket does not get you into this tomb, you have to pay extra but it is well worth it. We went at the end ofJuly so it was...More

King Tutankhamen still guards his resting place. A small tomb and very much less grand than other tombs in the valley so was it really built for him ? He was a young King when he died but we will never know if this was...More

After seeing the treasures and especially the gold mask of Tutankhamun at the Cairo museum , I was anxious and eager to see the actual tomb in the Valley of the kings. We had to pay separately for entering the tomb. It was a disappointment....More

Yes, this costs extra. Yes, it is tiny compared to the other magnificent tombs. But, if you know what you are going into before you get there, it is totally worth paying extra to see Tut’s actual mummy and stone sarcophagi. We saw many of...More

This tomb costs an additional 200 L.E. to enter. The Boy King is often the most spoken about Pharaoh but his tomb is not worth the price of admission. Seriously, it is one room with his mummy and one of his sarcophagus on display. You...More

A true insight into the fascinating eruption history. Although photography was not allowed within his tomb it was incredible to see how they decorated his tomb that then remained untouched for decades. I would love to visit the Cairo museum and see the extracted artefacts...More

It was interesting to learn and see everything that related to King Tut. The movie wasn't as interesting as seeing some of the artifacts.

As tombs go this is a little one. But everyone knows of King Tut. And, honestly, the colors are more vivid and preserved than in many of the other tombs here. Like in the other tombs the guard is more than happy to no only...More
