We entered the tomb (Additional tickets needed at an extra cost) and there is definitely other tombs more worth a visit. For me the Tut hype is more because most of the treasures wasn't looted and discovered in tact. But if you are on a tight budget not necessary to visit

This tomb is really small actually and not as I had imagined. This is because he died so young and had no time to decorate his tomb to the same degree as his ancestors. Rameses IV is amazing but he lived to be 93. It's worth a visit but don't say didn't warn you.

Everything that we expected, after reading about King Tut, the boy king, for many years. We went with Memphis Tours, who were fantastic and they picked us up from our cruise ship in Safaga. One of those really special days, that we'll remember for ever

We went in just to have been in the tomb of Tutankhamen, but if you're looking for an interesting, beautiful tomb, don't waste time on this one.

You get to see the Mummy of the king and the intact drawings. All the artifacts are in the museum of antioquities in Cairo so the tomb is pretty much empty. Not the most impressive but worth the extra fee just for the Mummy

You get to see the Mummy of the king and the walls have beautiful drawings and still intact. Unfortunately you are not allowed to take pictures. Also your tour guide not allowed to come in with you in the tombs

There are few tombs as fascinating as Tut's. His mummy and sarcophagus are here too. All of the colors are brilliant. I highly recommend paying the minimum entrance fee to see it.

When you go to the valley of kings, this place cost an extra fee, in case you decide later on, it is a bit annoying to go back to the front door since it is a bit far, you will need to take transportation and back, So decide this when you arrive to eliminate delays. Tut's body is here, the... More

Visited as part of our Emo tour. Coupled with the exhibit in Cairo museum this provides an interesting glimpse into the ancient past. Be prepared with some 5 Egyptian Pound notes, in all the tombs there will be people waiting to "show you something" and expect a tip.
