“good experience”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The tomb is well preserved and it is full of colored painting which telling us about the second life in the ancient Egyptian era. Enjoy every details there, make a system while viewing, take a wall while descending and the opposite while ascending.

“Well worth the E£35 additional entrance fee”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The paintings are the best of any you can see in the Valley of the Kings (only Seti I being better but that tomb is never open).
The texts are so tightly wirtten that it would take a great expert to be able to interpret them all so go inside and just be dazzled at the vibrancy of the colours and detailing.
