You do have to pay a little extra to get in here - but its worth it - and you may only be in Egypt once! The Tomb also has his mummy - its such a strange feeling to think how old this is! Amazing...More

Although possibly the most famous, this is not the best tomb to visit. It is quite small and was obviously finished in a hurry. There is now very little to see inside, since all the treasures that Howard Carter discovered inside have been carted off,...More

Not the biggest tomb, but stunningly beautiful inside. I also did not expect to find him at home ! Yep, lying there to the left of the lower area, covered in a glass case. Amazing. This was the single best highlight of 10 days in...More

It does cost to get in here, but it's worth it. How can you go to Egypt and not visit the most famous tomb in the world? The burial chamber is all you can go into, and Tut's mummy was not in the sarcophagus, but...More

The famous tomb is well taken care of,but the trick to appreciating it is to visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo first where you can see the contents which are all in one room. That will give you a better appreciation of the tomb itself.

I make Howard Carter words mine: I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things.” Although not...More

It has changed since we saw it two years ago. New flooring and Tut's actual mummy have been added. A copy of the funeral mask is now in the sarcophagus. You look down at that and can't walk around it. It is exciting to think...More

That is totally personal and how you feel the service was and how much you can afford. They are hurting now with tourism down so I'd suggest as much as you feel comfortable giving.

It doesn't really make much difference it's not far to the valley, but a must while your there the Temple of Karnak , it's awesome!!!
How much is the ticket for the entry to the tomb. And do people go to the original tomb or they go to the replica one more.
