Amazing tombs and all so different. They have a unique feature to all of them. There is a ton of color preserved. They take some time to get through. Make sure to leave you your camera.

The art work, sarcophagi etc is amazing. Every step of the way down offers beautiful sights. Be sure to look at the ceilings.

Wonderful tomb! Extra ticket, for 80 LE is needed beside the normal, KV ticket (160 LE). We spent good 45 min. inside the tomb, and made almost 180 photos. Photo ticket is 300 LE and for that price one can take pictures in 3 tombs....More

Worth the extra ticket. The colors are amazing you can just imagine what it would have been like when they first entered.

Maybe the best tomb of them all for quality hieroglyphics and color paintings. Quite extensive. I could have spent an hour rather than the recommended 10 minutes per person. Not to be missed!!

The Tomb of Ramesses VI was one of the tombs we wanted to see with our general admission ticket of 160 LE for three tombs. There are some beautiful paintings on the tomb walls and ceiling, one of the best tombs that we saw.

This tomb is very beautiful. The colours and painting are still nice. The ceiling remaining is very nice to look at. But if you have to chose, the Rameses IV tomb is much more beautiful though you have to pay an extra 80 egyptian pounds.

I found the Tomb of Ramses VI the most impressive among the tombs that we visited in the Valley of the Kings. This is one of the most colorful tombs with vibrant colors, beautiful walls and an amazing ceiling. You will pay an extra charge...More
