towards the inner chamber. Don’t expect to be blinded by a dazzling haul of
treasures. For the tiny room is airless. Because opportunistic robbers had
stripped of their treasures thousands of years ago. Even though you are not
claustrophobic, the experience might feel a little anticlimactic.

hotels while in Egypt Tours.
