About
Papyrus Institute Papyrus is an important part of Egypt’s history. The raw material used to make this ancient paper comes from the stalk of the Cyperus papyrus plant,which has a brittle interior and a tough exterior and grows in damp regions of the Nile Delta. Its method of production was a well­-kept secret for many years, allowing the ancient Egyptians to have a monopoly over its production and distribution. The Papyrus Institute is a government-­approved museum and shop not far from the Pyramids in Giza, where visitors can browse and buy a huge selection of hand­-painted papyrus prints. Prices range from the cheap to the very expensive, but bear in mind that these prints are the authentic article and make for some quality souvenirs. Staff at the Papyrus Institute talk visitors through the entire process of manufacturing papyrus, including a demonstration of exactly how it is made.

Tonsi never fails us. My friends and I had a ladies day off shopping, and as usual we booked with the best - Tonsi. The tour was very informative and entertaining. We had a great day of shopping followed by lunch.

Thanks again Tonsi.

My friends and I did a shopping trip and lunch tour with Tonsi. As always he provided us with a other great day exploring Egypt. He made sure we were getting good deals on our purchases, attentive to what we wanted/needed, and made sure we weren’t being harassed by people selling things on the street. I have already booked my next tour with To so a d will continue to use his services.
