Create an itinerary including Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Tut)
One of the most famous Ancient Egyptian sites, Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Tut) has inspired myth and legend in the modern era, and now forms part of the World Heritage-listed Theban Necropolis. The boy king's tomb was discovered in 1922 by Egyptologist Howard Carter, and its wealth of gold and riches--meant to travel with King Tut into the afterlife--are now on display in a museum in Cairo. Step into the burial chamber to examine wall decorations depicting King Tut's passage into the underworld, where he is welcomed by Osiris. Unlike many other tombs in the Valley of the Kings, this one remained largely intact, and the subsequent deaths of those who excavated it gained widespread media attention for the "curse of the pharaohs."

  • I remained speechless visiting the tomb of King Tut. The walls still have the majority of the paintings and signs, very beautifully lighted and the presence of the mummy put this place on top of others, also the presence of one of the sarcophagi raise more the interest for this place. May the mummy rest in peace!
  • After reading so many articles and watching TV series inspired from original events, finally I saw the most intact tomb ever found, KV 62. You need to buy an extra ticket to visit this tomb : EGP 250.The artwork on the walls is gorgeous and still in excellent condition. The sarcophagus and the mummy are both there and in climate controlled glass. Photography is not allowed inside this tomb.
  • Big surprise, to be honest! Didn't expect much of this tomb bit it is small and beautiful, and so important Im glad we visited on the end. Basically this is a rip off tomb (300 EGP) but a nice thing to visit for Luxor Pass bearers.
  • Met a guy here who called himself “King Tut”, not sure what he was referencing. Anyways, he was a young guy, pretty nice fellow that limped and knew every inch of this place, almost like it was his tomb. Will definitely visit again!
  • I was lucky enough to have seen Tut up close (like right next to him) before they closed off much of the immediate area to foot traffic. On my previous trip to Egypt, I saw Tut in the old museum in downtown Cairo (right next to the burned-out buildings in Tahrir Square). If you are at all interested in history, archaeology, and/or ancient Egypt, do not pass up a chance to visit the Valley of the Kings and Tut Ankh Amun's mummy and tomb. It is a once-in-a-lifetime (twice or more if you're lucky) experience, and one that you will never forget.
