What people are saying about Egyptian Museum of Antiquities

My wife and I had an absolutely incredible time on this tour! Rania was so organized from the beginning and made sure everything went smoothly. Our driver Turik was very kind and we felt safe at all times with him as our driver. And finally there is Amina who was the best tour guide we have had. She was so knowledgeable about Egypt and we learned so much from her about ancient and modern history. You can tell she really knows her stuff and cares about the history. We always had some free time to ourselves at each activity and never felt rushed or pressured. Amina gave the best tips at every location. The free water was awesome and as vegans she made sure the restaurant accommodated us. The stops at the papyrus institute and aromatherapy is to not be missed - they are very warm and helpful and teach you a lot about the history and science behind it. Overall we had a fantastic time and we just loved spending our time with Amina. When we come back to Egypt we will be messaging her!

The excursion was great. Simply mega. I recommend it 100%. We even traveled with 3 children 7, 7 and 10 years old and we had no problem. Everyone was super professional and especially the travel companion Achmet, who explained everything to us in perfect German. We would definitely do it again

The guide Ahmed Amin was very good. Very caring and tried very hard to show and explain everything to us. He also saved us from the street traders at the pyramids. So a very, very good travel guide can only be recommended.

Awesome. Im speechless right now. One of the best trips you can ever had. Had soooo much fun. Views were something out of this world. And guide was so fun to he around. Best agency really recommended
