Very interesting and useful visit to update the knowledge on this fascinating page of history and Thanks to the precious assistance of the guide Sofia, available and careful to provide explanations on historical trends, finds and processing techniques in the various phases of the history of ancient Egypt. The guide was very attentive and patient with the children, making them participate and involved in this extraordinary educational path.

wonderful day, our guide Sofia was fantastic, despite the busy day she didn't make us bored for a second, engaging, prepared, nice. We are so fond of Sofia that we will miss her. As for the tour we have seen everything that can be seen in Turin, the times are perfectly marked. Thanks to this tour Turin has a different flavor now. Highly recommended, believe us you will not regret it!

Despite having already visited the Cairo museum, this one in Turin still has a large quantity of finds, even of great value and well preserved. The spaces available for visits, especially the guided ones, should be managed better as the groups often crossed each other creating confusion. However nice experience that I recommend to lovers of the genre.

Day dedicated to the Royal Palace and Egyptian museum with a guide, Sofia, truly competent and engaging. Despite the time available (about 5 hours), not much for what we had to visit Miss Sofia allowed us to grasp the essence of the palace and the museum. I'm sure I'll use this service again next time

La guide était excellente connaissant bien le musée et la civilisation égyptienne Son français était très bon Elle était très gentille
