Impressive sight to see

While at the Valley of the Kings Ramses VI was one of the tombs we were able to see. The detail on the walls is very impressive.

The tomb of Ramses VI in the Valley of the Kings is one of the most prominent in the Valley and features several large and intricate carvings on the walls. Though R VI was not one of the better known pharaohs in Egypt, this is still one tomb that you could consider visiting.

First look at the model in the visitor center to see the extraordinary number of tombs so far discovered and how deep they they plunge into the earth. Then, you must visit as many of these tombs as possible while here in the Valley of the Kings to fully appreciate the magnitude of the expansive area. How on earth they... More

As awesome as it is to be in the tomb, it is too bad you are not allowed to take pictures... They will try and sell you a CD but those are not your memories...

This tomb is simply magnificent. Enter with reverence and respect. Disturb not the peace and tranquility - please follow instructions and don't take photo's inside. Most annoying when they ask you not to and tourists just seem not to care. Have a small notebook with you and a pencil to sketch for yourself images of interest. Look for the story... More

The Tomb of Ramses VI in the Valley of the Kings is among over sixty tombs and burial chambers on the west bank of the Nile. Inside there are no valuables. There are stone carvings on walls of the long passage leading to the burial chamber deep inside the mountain cliff.

This was one of the best tombs - worth the extra price for the ticket. There are huge bright paintings all over the tomb and the descent is not too strenuous. Try and read about it or have a guide who can explain who Ramses VI was etc

One of three tombs that must be visited reflecting styles of the three dynasties, beautiful work. Visiting the valley quite early, I was alone for some time, moving.

This tomb looks like it hasn't aged a day, and it's thousands of years old. The color and hieroglyphics on the walls are still in incredible shape. As always, watch the guards trying to make a buck, and please don't take pictures, even if they offer

All of the tombs in the Valley of Kings are worth every drop of sweat that you shed while there. Don't miss them
