Mental is the word to describe this. Absolutely jaw dropping. I am not exaggerating when I say this is the most incredible artwork I’ve ever seen.

10/10 a life changing experience

Worth every cent, especially as there were fewer people there.

This is one of the prettiest tombs in the Valley. It requires an extra ticket but worth it since you've traveled all the way to Egypt already.

This tomb has been cleaned and restored using the methods that were perfected during the restoration of Queen Nefertari's tomb. It is an easy one to visit, not strenuous but has strong colors. Be sure to look up as you walk in. There is a long representation of the Goddess Nut on the ceiling before you arrive at the burial chamber. The burial chamber is magnificent - both the walls and ceiling. If you visit only one tomb in the KV, this is the one to visit.

Queen Nefertari's Tomb in the Valley of Queens was the best, Ramses Tomb was the best of the rest. The tomb is very deep and richly adorned.

The best preserved and I believe largest tomb in the Valley of the Kings and best saved til last. It’s a long way down but well worth it.

Ms Ghada with Egypt Tailor Made took care of us over 5 days of tours around Luxor and this was one of them- She is amazing!

The site is amazing - these were some of the most beautifully preserved and colorful tombs artwork. We were just amazed. Do not miss it.

Another great tomb to visit with lots of colourful hieroglyphics to see and photography is allowed. The tomb was originally started for Rameses V but was taken over by Rameses VI. At the bottom of the tomb is an empty sarcophagus which you are able to walk around before returning the way you came in.

When in Luxor one has to visit the Valley of the Kings. The tomb of Ramses VI is a must see and part of the entrance ticket. Great art. Also to see is the tomb of King Tut where he rests in his original grave, but one has to pay additional to visit Tut's grave.

Definitely worth visiting. The colours in the tomb are fabulous! There was no hassle inside or out, crowds moved with consideration of each other.

This is another well restored tomb. The level of detail is amazing. You really felt like you had gone back in time. Definitely worth seeing and braving the crowds.
