Our Egyptologist guide , Mr.Hassan of Imesty Travel was very very knowledgeable and had the ability to bring alive the rich history behind the artifacts in this unique museum . I had visited it over three decades ago and Mr.Hassan had the talent to bring light on many issues which had not been brought to my attention during my previous visit . Mr. Hassan feels and lives this rich history as he describes and explains it .

Cairo was admittedly not my favorite city to visit but this tour and in particular our guide Mohammed was definitely a highlight, he was very friendly and knowledgeable and even continued to offer assistance and information beyond after we went other places - I can’t say I recommend Cairo but if you find yourself there i do recommend this tour

Punctual pick up, very prepared and nice guide, the museum is wonderful, but in a few months (they say October) they will transfer all the finds to the new one, so for those who want to visit the historic one, they must hurry.

Friendly and prepared guide. Unfortunately, some valuable pieces from Tuthankamon's collection were missing. Punctual and precise driver guard

great day with Margaret, very informative and breezy
