Egyptian Museum with a Great storyteller and teacher
Oct 2021
We loved our trip to this museum, so many really fantastic exhibits. Our guide Mahmoud badr made them all come to life with his animated stories. He was really knowledgeable about all the pieces and answered all our questions. Mahmoud and the museum are great for all ages there was so much to see and we really enjoyed learning from such a great storyteller. Some amazing pieces in the museum and the King Tut pieces were really magnificent.

Personal tour of Egyptian Museum with Titto
Titto is very knowledgeable about Egyptian history. We spent about 2 hours at the Egyptian Museum exploring history. Very flexible on what I wanted to see. I booked my tour over the Internet and turned out great. Highly recommend Titto for a local tour guide.

Great museum experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
Our guide was Galal who showed up early for our time and was ready and waiting for us. The van was super clean and sanitized. Galal took us to the museum where he spent a great deal of time explaining the stories behind all of the historical artifacts throughout the museum. We really appreciated all of the details he provided throughout the day! Thanks to Galal for making this a 5 star experience for us today.

An Intimate and Thorough Experience
Sep 2021 • Solo
Galal picked me up from my hotel on time in a very comfortable tour bus, driven by a pleasant driver. It was just me that day, and the solo tour of the museum was really cool. I got to ask him all the questions I wanted to without feeling like he didn't want to take time to answer them fully. Initially, he might seem a little unconcerned but his academic and practical knowledge of Egypt - it's people, religions, and history - shine through incredibly well. He can answer just about any question you ask him, and does so with genuine interest. I would highly recommend going to this museum with a tour guide because it is not very well laid out, but is one of the most incredible collections of well preserved history I have ever seen. The tour lasted about 2.25 hours. You can probably spend longer but that seemed like enough (it's two floors).

Great antiquities and sad present
The Egyptian museum located in downtown cairo looks very elite from the outside. It contains old Egyptian antiquities , huge statues and monuments that are realy breathtaking. The sad thing is that no updating have been done to this museum for ages, the dust is every where, the light is dim and no air conditioning. Our old ancestors deserve a better treatment I'm sure.

Deep dive into the depth of Egyptian history, astounding
Mar 2020
Hello,
I had a few hours before my work agenda starts later tomorrow and decided to pay a visit to the Egyptian Museum. It is not my first trip to Egypt, but before that I was either vacationing with my family in Sharm Eh Sheikh or Hurghada, both being far away and not easily reacheble with kids around, or visited on business with a compressed schedule
This time was different and I picked solo guided tour to the said museum.
Based on reviews I chose Deluxe Travel's option. Despite late booking (the night before the morning when I was supposed to take the tour), order was accepted and Emad was like a Swiss clock waiting for me in the lobby next morning.
Anwar, in his mini van, delivered us carefully yet promptly to the place in less than half an hour.
Submersion into culture began in the van, and I would say, it is an excellent move by Deluxe Travel, as without it I would not be prepared to get into the details right off the bat upon arrival to the museum. Emad gave a brief yet detailed overview of the EG history, starting from 3500 BC to 7th century AD. I was paying attention, as during the story telling Emad was making references to certain artifacts that I was later to see in person. I liked this part very much, and without it (especially if you had not taken any time to open up wikipedia to go through the history yourself), experience would not be full.

Inside the museum the time flew by fast as we were glinding from one gallery to another one, going from the Old Kingdom, to the Mid one, and all the way to the Greek part of EG history. Fascinating ! Hardly too many countries on this planet have the history as rich and, most importantly, as well preserved.
The mask of Tutahkhamon turned out to be a brilliant piece of art, captivating. Emad was patiently waiting for me outside as I was walking thru that chamber on my own, as guides were not allowed in due to whatever reason.
Photos were not a problem pretty much everywhere, except the Tutankhamon room with the 11 kilo solid gold mask.

Overall, very intellectually nourishing, and with the professional help from Emad and careful driving of Anwar it was overall an excellent experience, which makes me think of my next one to a different location but apparently with the same team.

NB: there is plenty of reconstruction work ongoing now. Certain artifacts are packed to be relocated to the new museum, that, as Emad mentioned will be x16 bigger and will open up in one year.
I believe I shall repeat the trip back then in the new setting.
