My family knows Egypt and its history quite well, we missed the Egyptian museum in Turin, so we booked a visit with a private guide. I must say that the guide (a young man in his thirties), as well as being kind, was very prepared, clearly passionate about the subject and from what we understand he studied Egyptology. The visit was supposed to last two hours, but without letting us notice or rushing us (we had a lot of questions), the guide completed the entire route in 2.5 hours. One of the most pleasant experiences with guided tours.

Siamo capitati con una brillante professoressa bionda di una certa età. È riuscita in due ore a darci un’ottima panoramica del museo e della civiltà egizia, nonostante il grande affollamento di persone. Spiegazioni chiare con aneddoti divertenti. Unica pecca il prezzo (55€ a persona, secondo noi un pò troppo). Grazie di tutto

Abbiamo visitato il museo egizio il 24 ottobre mattina. Esperienza eccezionale di per se (il museo merita tutta la fama che lo precede) si è trasformata in qualcosa di davvero unico grazie alla nostra impareggiabile guida Nars; un bravissimo egittologo egiziano che vissuto nei luoghi che racconta e che ha studiato la civiltà egizia per gran parte della sua vita. Nasr ci ha accompagnato, ben oltre i suoi obblighi di tempo, in un viaggio dentro il mondo degli antichi egizi. Auguro a tutti la possibilità di vistate il muso con Nasr! Difficile immaginare una guida, anzi un vero compagno di viaggio, migliore!
