Basically you are paying 100ep to see a very small tomb with 3 rooms in it and one is painted and has a sarcophagus in it. The only other thing to see is the king's mummy. If you really love tut, you should see it, but in my opinion, there are much better things to see in the valley of... More

I have been fortunate enough to visit this place twice. Once in the 80's (when it was a bun run with 100's of others to que up and get in). The last time I went it was a pre booked tour so no pushing and shoving. I would defiantly recommend going very early in the morning especially in the summer.... More

There was an additional charge of 100 EGP to visit Tut's tomb, KV62. The visit satisfied my curiosity about the appearance of his burial site as I had seen his grave goods, gold death mask, jewels, and gold nested sarcophagi in the Egyptian Museum. A short corridor led to his burial chamber in which a rusty colored stone sarcophagus lay,... More

It's the real deal. Worth the extra charge. We were amazed by the colours and how well everything is preserved. And there, under glass, is the young man himself. It was incredible.

To pay and extra $6 USD to see King Tut's tomb and his mummy was totally worth it. Maybe we were lucky, but it was uncrowded when we were there so we really got a good look at everything. It was great to have the perspective of where his things came from before seeing his exhibit at the museum in... More

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.
