We booked this tour with a German-speaking guide. You can also book this tour without a guide with preferential admission. Our guide Farag was very competent and explained everything to us very well. When it got to be too much for us, he broke off and showed understanding. He got involved with us excellently and also gave us the freedom to explore something independently. About the tour: The old Egyptian museum makes an impressive impression from the outside thanks to the colonial style. Inside it is a bit more sober, which is mainly due to the outsourcing of works of art to the new national museum. The part of Tutankhamun is very good but also heavily frequented. The National Museum afterwards was better for us. The digital show in the courtyard of the hall is great and the mummy gallery is also great. It's just a pity that you are not allowed to take photos in the gallery. In the age of digital photography without a flash, the operators should rethink something.
