Poor service by the guide assigned to us. Our guide was not interesting on showing us anything. He was on such a rush and we fell like he made us run thru the museum. We spend less than 2 hrs inside the museum.
The Egyptian Museum is so full of antiquities that navigating it alone would deprive you of the full experience. In many instances, the signs are very small, not fully informative and often not accessible due to other patrons. Having a guide to fully explain the significance of each piece was critical to our full appreciation and enjoyment of the museum. Highly recommend.
Our guide, Fouad, made sense of a magnificent but disorganized collection of thousands of years of history. I'm sure we would have enjoyed the museum's thousands of artifacts anyway but Fouad added the historical context and led us to some of the lesser known items. A guide for this museum is a must-have. Fouad was fluent in english with very little accent so very easy to understand. He also provided translations of several of the hieroglyphics to make understanding the artfacts much easier.
Incredible guide and fantastic service from South Sinai as always. Would never consider using a different agent, everyone we have dealt with there has become a friend. What more could you take home from a holiday.
If you are lucky enough t have Amged as your guide and Naser as your driver, you will have a superb, professional, tailored experience. I cant say enough good things about either of them. My traveling companion uses a wheelchair and every part of the tour was carefully thought out and made accessible.
