During the summer months and especially mid day visits most dainty toursits are indoor ;-) take your time and say hello to the boy king. His actual body was in the tomb when we were there in 2008. Let your kids soak this in slowly. Give it plenty of time. Carry lots water...or buy expensive one there. Always haggle.

So exciting to visit the tomb of Tutankhamun we all are familiar with its discovery and history. If you go on an coach excursion this is usually extra but well worth paying for. His mummy is there in a glass case on display, it may not be the bigget or grandest tomb in the valley of the Kings but you certainly feel that you have been somewhere special.

“When will you return?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I read the TripAdvisor reviews both pro/con about people saying it wasn't worth it, they were sorry they didn't go in, they were glad they went in...

I decided to enter King tut's Tomb on June 28, 2013 knowing the reviews. I was thrilled and very excited to be standing in King Tut's Tomb! Yes, it is two small rooms. In comparison to the other tombs I entered in the Valley of the Kings this was not an adventure to trek into BUT it IS King Tut's Tomb.

I saw the Mummy of King Tut. I gazed in wonder and briefly daydreamed about the moment that this tomb was opened almost 100 years ago. I imagined all of the artifacts I saw days earlier in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Wow - this is the tomb! I've wasted more money then the cost of admission to enter this tomb and got a whole lot less.

You may not "get" the most fantastic paintings on the wall - although I loved the golden wall with all the baboons! You may not have a long journey deep into this tomb. You aren't allowed to take pictures. This is merely about the location. I don't think it is fair to try to compare this with other tombs.

Before you decide to pass up the opportunity ask yourself...When will I return to this opportunity again?

By the way - certainly pay the additional fee to enter Rameses VI tomb right near King Tut Tomb. The walls and ceiling are very beautiful.

“Not that impressive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

The egyptians started building tombs at the moment the new king set foot upon the throne and stopped building the moment he died.

Tut died rather young so he left the smallest tomb with the least internal decorations in the whole valley of kings. If you are on a time or money budget there is no need to spend either on this tomb, there are much better places to see.

The content of the tomb is all in Cairo so enjoy it there. The only special thing about is that the mummy of Tut is actually lying in the tomb so if you want to see it go for it.

Oh btw as well as in all tombs you will meet some egyptians who will show you something and then demand a tip for it.

its nice to say you have been in the tomb but there isn't much to see as it is all in the museum in Cairo. If you have been to the Museum then it means more seeing the tomb
