Very interesting and useful visit to update the knowledge on this fascinating page of history and Thanks to the precious assistance of the guide Sofia, available and careful to provide explanations on historical trends, finds and processing techniques in the various phases of the history of ancient Egypt. The guide was very attentive and patient with the children, making them participate and involved in this extraordinary educational path.

Despite having already visited the Cairo museum, this one in Turin still has a large quantity of finds, even of great value and well preserved. The spaces available for visits, especially the guided ones, should be managed better as the groups often crossed each other creating confusion. However nice experience that I recommend to lovers of the genre.

The Guide was very friendly and helped us a lot with future activities. She even helped us to book a great Restaurant / Store

Andrea cultured and funny person. Tour around Turin interesting and not boring.

Andrea, the guide, very knowledgeable and passionate. A beautiful experience
