This tomb is very small, smaller than I had imagined but how can you come to Egypt and not see it? Since he passed away so young they had very little time to build him a proper tomb but it's still beautiful and great to...More
Obviously king tut is the most famous king, as it was the most recently discovered (1922) ontop of an early death. He died around 19 years old and was king from about 10 years old. His body has damage to his chest and legs which...More
Surprisingly small for such a well known pharaoh.He did not live long enough for something bigger and more ostentatious.
No photos allowed.
Whatever was taken to the Cairo museum must have been packed in tightly 😉
Worth a quick visit.
The tomb is surprisingly small, because it was built very quickly when Tutankamun passed away as a young man. It does not look as cool as the other tombs. Yet, it is cool to re-live the excitement that the archeologists must have felt when they...More
I had the most amazing tour guide who was very knowledgeable of this place. It is one thing to read about this in the history books but it’s another to see it in real life. Everywhere we went, I felt like a kid and it...More
One of the main reasons for choosing Egypt was to see Tomb of King Tutankhamen. Your entry ticket does not get you into this tomb, you have to pay extra but it is well worth it. We went at the end ofJuly so it was...More
King Tutankhamen still guards his resting place. A small tomb and very much less grand than other tombs in the valley so was it really built for him ? He was a young King when he died but we will never know if this was...More
After seeing the treasures and especially the gold mask of Tutankhamun at the Cairo museum , I was anxious and eager to see the actual tomb in the Valley of the kings.
We had to pay separately for entering the tomb.
It was a disappointment....More
Yes, this costs extra. Yes, it is tiny compared to the other magnificent tombs. But, if you know what you are going into before you get there, it is totally worth paying extra to see Tut’s actual mummy and stone sarcophagi. We saw many of...More
This tomb costs an additional 200 L.E. to enter. The Boy King is often the most spoken about Pharaoh but his tomb is not worth the price of admission. Seriously, it is one room with his mummy and one of his sarcophagus on display. You...More

It really depends on the arrangements for your trip; we pre-booked and pre-paid for all our visits through a local agent and this included a guide - I went as part of a group of about 30, so the numbers were significantly different, but it was full-on for about 5 whole days - at the end we contributed to whip-rounds for the coach driver, the guide and the two tourist police who had travelled with us extensively in Cairo at all hours of the day and night. At the Valley of the Kings it was fairly free to move around and I don't recall loads of hawkers once you were 'inside the gates' - there is an embargo on cameras and photos here though, but you are free to enter the tombs that are open (not all are open on the same day and you may find only one or two of the 'important' ones open, so it can be pot luck) - but there are good photos of all the tombs in the shop and they are reasonably priced - there are also hawker stalls outside with a wide range of 'products' on offer and available for barter. There was a door man on the tomb entrances with a bowl and some change or a small note (Baksheesh) is always appreciated - it's not long before you realise that the whole economy runs on back-handers and wheel-oiling at many levels -it's a fact of life in Egypt, so go with the flow, but don't over-splash the cash.
