Tutankhamun's tomb open or closed July 2008?

Hi, Anyone know if Tutankhamun's tomb is open or closed at the moment?

We are visiting Luxor from the 2nd-16th of July.

Thanks

It was supposed to close down in may but as of this week it still hasn't happened. Don't know if there anyone has a definite answer but do remember 'it is egypt' and anything can change! Ask when you get there then you know for sure ;-)

I have just got back (yesterday) and managed to visit the tomb. Didn't see any signs or anything saying it was closing though.

Tutankhamun's tomb is closed every day between noon and 2 PM.

From November 1., the price is going to be 100 LE as opposed to the 80 LE it is now.

Chances are you'll be in Valley of the Kings in the morning, so the two hours closing time should have no affect on your trip.

the tomb is open no problem, the best way and most advised is to visit the kings valley the earliest possible, even at 6 am once it is open to avoid the heat, it is so hot that you can not immagine
