“Small but still beautiful tomb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

This tomb may be small to the pharaohs standards :D , but it is still really beautiful, and it is the only tomb to hold it's owner inside (Tut is still inside in a glass container). I think it is really beautiful and it is well worth the money.

“Tutankhamun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Wow to see this tomb was a must the colours have kept so bright. Our tour guide told us no photos but we were offered to take one on the quiet, don't do it they want money and if you say no they call police. Our tour guide LAST PHAROAH was everything a tour guide should be he was funny, informative, and his knowledge was great.

“Maybe last chance to visit ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Tutankhamun's tomb is in a bit of a state now and really in need of saving. It's planned that it will close to tourists who will get the chance to visit the replica instead at the Carter house. The additional fee over the years has been to try to limit visits but it's not enough to save it. It's the only known royal tomb to house its owner. It's a tiny tomb by royal standards (Tut's real tomb taken by his successor?), and with limited decoration but it is of historic importance in that most of us have ended up in Egypt as a direct result of its discovery and its phenomenal impact. Be there, see it, feel it, respect it while you can.

my favorite tomb. It is just amazing. If you are in the valley of kings you need to see this tomb. if you have a student international card, the fee is cheaper that adult entrance fee
