It's small, cramped, hot and compared to any other tomb, underwhelming. But you have to go to say you have been, but otherwise save your time and money for other tombs.

You have to pay extra to get into this tomb, it is small, it is cramped and usually a lot of people there. The colors are there but many other tombs have more colors. His mummy is there in the sarcophagus and that is kind of cool, but that is the only thing that kept me from giving it a... More

The tomb of Tutankhamun is rightly famous but it is small and overcrowded. That overcrowding is damaging it. Visit instead the replica -which you can photograph - which is included with the ticket to Howard Carter's house.

If you go to Valley of the Kings and buy the main ticket you can visit three tombs, but they don't include the tomb of Tutankhamun. the ticket to the tomb of King Tut is available there for 100 EGP per person, I would not recommend it because it is very poor in details since this tomb was not finished...

It’s an extra 100 EGP to visit the Tomb of King Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings. The tomb is similar to the other tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The bonus is that the unwrapped mummy of King Tutankhamun in its gilded wooden coffin is on display.

To be able to go inside the tomb and see the king lied in his eternal sleep is a must for anyone, Luxor is the world capital of antiquities and king tut is the jewel of Luxor.

...especially when compared to some of the other tombs in the Valley of the Kings. But then I'm sure that most of the guide books tell you that: and like me, you will feel you have to go anyway....

I've only given this an average only because there really isn't a great deal to see and after all the publicity this tomb receives it was slightly disappointing. Due to his short rein the tomb is very small and basic compared to the other tombs which are heavily decorated. All the wonderful artifacts are in the Luxor and Cairo museums.... More

Once again a visit to Egypt would not be complete without going to the Valley of the Kings. The magnificence of this tomb is breathtaking

A tiny tomb by royal standards with substandard art. You go here for the pilgrimage, this the place where all that stuff in the Cairo Museum came from.The clown car of tombs! Tut rests here still.
