Owner description: The tomb of King Tut was discovered in the Valley of the Kings in 1922 by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.
Reviewed 5 March 2018 via mobile

Who has not heard and wonder about Tutankhamen tomb? Certainly anyone interested in history and archeology has fantasised with Howard Carter and the discovery of its tomb. To have an opportunity to see it was amazing but unfortunately the reality is that it is the smaller and least impressive tomb of any Pharaoh by a large margin and it is very overpriced and crowded. So a tic in the to do things but disappointing

Being very informed about this tomb and about the boy king, I couldn't wait to see this for myself. The area is much smaller than imagined but there is another hidden tomb off this room, another exciting discovery for the area. We were lucky enough to see this without a hoard of tourists so one can really stand and quietly take in all this tomb has to offer. That poor young man suffered greatly in his short life due to his ailments and inherited conditions. It is very beautiful and marvellous to look at the heiroglyphics

There are so many stories and beliefs sorrounding this tomb that one feels really excited when arriving to the place. One starts wondering about the curses and other weird ideas when stepping into the tomb.

Once crossing the main entrance, a journey to a magical world just begins. Walls are full of colourful hieroglyphics, retelling the greatness of this young king. Just taking a peep at all the details and letting one's mind to fly away is worth paying the entrance fee.

The tomb itself is simply but really beautiful.

A must-visit place in Egypt.

A revisit. It is quite a phenomonal site plus the replica at Howards Carters house. No visit to Luxor is complete without a visit

Have to say one of the least impressive tombs here. Small and walls are not interesting. Not missing much if you skip this other than to say you've been in his tomb.

Has his mummy and sarcophagus but really I doubt anyone would go if they weren't there. Famous due to it not being looted when the found the tomb but all the treasures are in the museums now.

Extra to go in and photography not legitimately allowed even with a photo pass.
