As a lover of ancient culture and Egyptian civilization it is definitely an experience that I recommend. The museum has been reorganized since my last visit, with an even richer and more detailed collection and a very spectacular final hall. The guide took us through the museum, explaining the artifacts and telling us very interesting anecdotes. The experience lasted a little more than the planned two hours, a fantastic experience.

This museum is really magnificent, what emotion when visiting. Our guide was really nice, thanks to him we took a lot of things and we are really happy to have had this visit only for the 2 of us.

Absolutely brilliant tour of the Egyptian Museum. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and he explained things really clearly. Would not hesitate to recommend others for this tour. 5 stars!

Experience to do absolutely. The presence of a guide is recommended to better appreciate the museum. Ours, Francesco, was able to make us relive ancient Egypt.

Carol was knowledgeable, clear and down to earth. She was happy to answer questions and relaxed.
