Are you allowed to take pictures inside the Tomb of Ramesses and other underground, painted tombs in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt?


Wikipedia says

Photography is no longer allowed in the tombs.

Searching Frommer's also indicates this being the case.

Another page which even mentions that in Saqqara you can bribe the guards with a few pounds only says

But they all pale compared with Ramses VI, which is 50 EP by itself. RIPOFF ALTER: no photos are allowed inside the tombs. Valley of the Kings is invariably a disappointment because there is very little to see, even less that is truly impressive, lots of tourists and no photography allowed.
