Wonderful experience with our guide Etham Asoud we were fortunate to have an experienced guide from ancient Egypt. person who gives you a maximum of information, who explains very well the history of Egypt. I highly recommend it to you.

Museum is unique

But you do not have to buy tickets online. Goes to the cash register very quickly. Gave problems in Cairo at the handover. Too complicated. Nevertheless, my thanks to the Cairoers who gave me back the money for self-bought tickets.

The museum is apsolutely amazing and worth seeing but we had just a little bit over 2 hours in there which is not even close to what you need. We couldn't take our time to look at anything properly

We had a great day!!! Our guide was amazing. Thank you !!!!!!
