    Egypt was amazing in every way. I specially love the Nile river and the Nubian village.
    This is amazing to see. We were lucky enough to have the most fantastic guide. .Hopa Abdul Wahab was amazing and thought of everything. Although he freelances, he also works for exotic tours. Abdul thought of everything and took very good care of us the whole time we were on tour in Egypt. He is absolutely brilliant at his job. The best tour guide ever.

    World Famous Tomb
    How do you go to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and not pay the extra admission to see the most famous tomb in history?!? Yes, it's small, but if it had been huge and he had been famous, someone would have found the tomb and looted it long ago. A very special place for that reason alone.

    You don’t need this review to understand why King Tut is a must see. Well worth your time after seeing the many numerous documentaries. I would never recommend this elsewhere but ask the chamber guard to take a few pictures for you. After spending days, and years inside they have some unique photo shoots. Just ask.

    Lots of steps leading down to the tomb. Many people and quite hot. The king is back in his tomb and his mummified body lies for all to see. Beautiful and colourful paintings adorn the walls. The guard took my camera for some personal photos (for a fee of course). Happy to give a tip for these awesome pictures. A truly wonderful place to visit. One of our bucket list experiences. Definitely a must do for both of us.

    King Tut’s tomb is much smaller than the other tombs but a must see
    King Tut’s tomb is an extra fee in the Valley of the Kings, but it is a must see. It is smaller than the other tombs and was not looted like many of the others. The king’s mummified body is displayed under glass in the tomb. The other objects found by Howard Carter in 1922 are located in museums in Cairo. The King Tut story is fascinating and after seeing his death mask in Cairo, viewing his tomb helps to complete everything.

    The extra ticket for this tomb is worthwhile
    This tomb is an added ticket when you visit the Valley of the Kings but it is worth it. Given the mystery surrounding it and its late discovery, the excitement of actually seeing it was special for us. We loved the paintings in the burial chamber and the history of the discovery was also interesting.

The tomb itself is small and pales in comparison to some of the other tombs in Valley of the Kings. However, it's by far the most famous tomb, given that it's one of the only tombs which wasn't looted. Most of the treasures are in the Cairo museum but the mummy was left here.

While all of the artifacts were taken from the tomb and are now on display in the Cairo Egyptian Museum or on tour around the world, it is noteworthy to visit the tomb where the mummy is preserved under glass. Also, the artwork on the walls is exceptional.

It was discovered by Howard Carter in 1922. It was the only tomb left untouched. The treasures were taken to Cairo but the sarcophagus and mummy are there and visible. It was an incredible experience to see them in real life, not only in history books! It’s worth the extra money. Must-see!
