A very knowledgeable and interesting young man gave us an excellent tour. He arranged pick up and escorted us throughout. Much fun and highly recommended.
A perfect afternoon (after flying 30 hours!). Our the guide was very helpful.
Prompt pick up at hotel, and the Egyptologist was very good, she was wonderful at steering us through the museum in order to see the specific things we wanted to see, and in her excellent delivery of the relevent history, we would not have managed without her.
This is just the the same as the previous one I can't be more pleased. This was a fabulous tour. Our guide Hannan was so good nothing was too much trouble. I hope that you will tell her how pleased we were with ever thing she did. Please also tell other people that she is the best guide you have. thank you for the lovely day
Excellent guide knowledgable and answered any questiions we had.
Punctual collection from hotel. Good, knowledgeable English Speaking guide accompanied us around the Museum. Level of detail just right.
Very crowded but worth visiting. Not allowed to take pictures inside, which was only regret. However, advantage of going in a small group is you can hear your guide explain about the individual pieces. I recommend spending the extra money and visiting the mummies. We were able to see Ramses II.
A memorable experience - to be able to see artefacts that are so many thousands of years old is truly awsome and King Tut's exhibition is really fantastic! The extra ticket to see the mummy room is worth doing, but be careful at the ticket desk It was very busy when we were buying our tickets and we were shortchanged.
Excellent tour, great tour guide. We visited on a holiday. The museum was extremely crowded for a "slow" day. I wish we had a little more time in the Museum to just wander.
Egyptian Museum was very interesting. Mummies room is great!
Tons of artifacts to see here. Again, our guide, was fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable. The visit here may be a bit short though. But, I bet you could spent a full 8 hours here and not see EVERYTHING. The guide did a good job of making sure we saw all of the most important pieces from each era though.
Another "must see" if you're in Cairo. The museum is a perfect follow-up trip to the pyramids, showcasing the artifacts previously housed within and adorning the exterior of the pyramids we'd visited the previous day. The mummy room exhibit is well worth the additional charge. It is the ONLY opportunity in the museum or in Cairo that we had to view actual mummies. With SO many thousands of items, we'd have traveled around the world, and left disappointed, never having seen the most important highlights had we NOT booked a personal guide. Our Egyptologist guide, a Cairo native, was fabulous! He was not only a never-ending encyclopedia on EVERY aspect of Egyptian culture, past and present, he was one of the most personable individuals I've had the pleasure to meet! Few people who are THAT intellectual have a capacity to relate to PEOPLE, let alone a gift for it! It was with tremendous respect and a lump in our throat that we bid farewell to him. Our dream of experiencing Egypt had come true in a most enchanting manner. Our deepest thanks to him, and to Viator!
