Entrance to the Tomb of Tutakhamun in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Egypt

The Tomb of Tutankhamun (KV 62)

November 26, 1922, Valley of the Kings, Luxor: "Can you see anything?", Lord Carnavon asked. And after a short pause, Howard Carter replied: "Yes, wonderful things." With his short, but all encompassing answer, Howard Carter described the most exciting archeological find in history. And Egyptomania has begun ...

Hundred years later, we are still fascinated by the young King and his burial objects.

My tipps:

The Tomb of Tutankhamun is not included in the general admission! You have to buy and extra ticket for EGP 200,00 (ca. EUR 11,00 or 13.00). The ticket booth is immediately outside of the welcome center on your right hand side.

Your tour guide will only buy the general admission tickets and you have to queue up for the extra tickets on your own.

It is the first thing you should do before getting into the little golf carts that take you into the valley. Once you are in the valley, you won't be able to buy additional tickets. Most of the people are disappointed when they notice that they are not allowed to visit the Tomb of Tutankhamun or some of the "better" tombs.
