Most of our group were on the fence about paying the extra E£300 to visit King Tut’s tomb, as we felt burned at paying E£400 to go into the Great Pyramid at Giza. However, I’m pleased to say that we were all glad we did, mainly because we got to see the King himself (in mummified form, of course). The tomb is smaller than most others in the Valley of Kings, since Tut died around the age of 19, so there was so much less time to finish the full tomb, but it’s still ornately decorated and one can take pictures of his majesty.

All but the granite sarcophagus and the mummy remain as all the contents have been removed and mostly as in Cairo. Regardless, pay the fee and see the beautiful Tomb of Tutankhamun. The wall paintings are bright and extremely well preserved.

As of June 2021, most of the King Tut treasures are upstairs at the Egyptian Museum (to be moved to the Grand Egyptian Museum when it is completed). But this tomb is a great addition to your Tut experience—you’ll see how small it was to still be crammed with so much treasure, and you’ll see the actual mummy and one of the sarcophagi is still there. There’s also some vivid painting on the walls. It’s a quick visit, but for us it was worth the price. And if you want MORE Tut, the new Hurghada Museum also has a case of incredibly pristine Tut artifacts.

You need to pay extra 300 LE Egyptian Pound (20 USD) to enter and meet Mr. Tut. But trust me it is totally worthy. This is a chance of a life time to meet a King 3500 years old.

You have to pay 300 EGP entry fee extra. This is small tomb but very beautiful and well preserved. You can see mummy of kind Tuts and some other objects of him.

This is a must see! Not very large, but very well kept. Colors on it are unreal, because you know it went through so much time...

This is an absolute must see! There is an extra charge to see this tomb as it is not among the ones that you can choose for your three choices. Cell phone photos are allowed. This tomb was the last tomb that was discovered, in the year 1922. It contained all the fabulous treasures which are now housed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and a few in the Luxor Museum. His mummy is in the tomb in its gilded wooden coffin and you are allowed to take cell phone photos of the mummy. The burial chamber walls are highly decorated but small in comparison to the other tombs in the valley.

Not the most interesting of tombs in terms of its walls but who doesn’t want to see King Tut even if you have to pay extra?
