Very much worth the extra entrance fee!
Nov 2021
Will highly recommend to visit this tomb (KV 9). This is for Ramses V and VI. The inside of the tomb is spectacular. Instead of paying the very steep entrance fees for Tomb of Seti I, we decided to take our guide's recommendation and visit this extra tomb. It was totally worth it.

Fantastic site in Luxor

So much to see in Luxor, but this site is must see. Amazing craftsmanship and colorful hieroglyphics adorn the walls and ceiling of this tomb. Very impressive.

Worth the extra ticket!
May 2021 • Family
This tomb requires a separate ticket, but we thought the cost was well worth it! It’s larger and better decorated than many of the others, and the enormous ruined sarcophagus in the burial chamber is neat to see. The colors are amazingly bright after so many years.

Very beautiful and very well preserved tomb. You have to pass a long tunnel and then see this beautiful painted wall. Worth visiting

Outstanding

You will walk down a long passageway to the tomb and not know where to look first.
You will see beautiful paintings, carvings, hieroglyphics and depictions. The colors are stunning and so well preserved. Even the ceiling is incredible.
With your entrance ticket you get to visit 3 tombs (King Tut is extra.) My understanding is that this is one you should pick.

Beautiful Tomb, must see!
Mar 2020
You will surely enjoy this tomb, easy to access. Great color, just amazing and huge! We got there in the morning and we had it to ourselves! If somebody wants to take your photo with your camera or guide you, they will expect a tip.

Amazing star chart of ancient Egypt!
Feb 2020
In my opinion, this is one of the top tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The color on the walls is amazing and the star chart aching across the burial chamber is a true wonder! Don't miss this tomb! Your ticket to the Valley of the Kings will allow you entrance into 3 tombs. I recommend Ramses III, Ramses V & VI (one tomb where they buried two pharaohs), and Ramses IV. All of these tombs have incredible color and stunning art work. Recommend that you also pay extra for Sety I, the largest and most beautiful tomb in the Valley. The rules have changed so you can use your cellphone to take photos, so you don't need to buy a photographic pass. If you tour Egypt, you must see the Valley of the Kings, truly a wonder of the ancient world!

Incredible condition considering its age and visitors
Mar 2020
Another one of the tombs that is currently open in the Valley of the Kings with extensive paintings, some in very good shape, primarily because it is so large and they are so high up that people cannot mar them by touching.

Should be one of your three tombs!
Feb 2020
We had hired a guide and the first place he took us to was this tomb. It is gorgeous and one of the most well preserved tombs- you can observe a lot of the original colors. I see a lot of reviews mention an extra charge but honestly it's just one of the three tombs you are allowed to enter (except Tutankhamen)
