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.

The guide was very professional and helpful. Without her we would have enjoyed the visit much less. The quality / price ratio is excellent because we had the guide for just the two of us.

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
