What people are saying about Grand Egyptian Museum, Giza

Punctual and reliable driver... upon entering the ship the table offered was opened by an air conditioner... several times we asked to close it... or to change the table... but it wasn't done... decent dinner... bad show! I wouldn't do it again

Everything was perfect, both the transport and the food, and the show exceeded expectations. If we really want to find a negative note, access to the boat is a little too messy.

Very good visit, the driver arrived half an hour late to pick us up but then everything got better, the guide Doma was the best we have ever had, a crack

Dina was an excellent tour guide, we have seen everything what we planned. We learned a lot about the Coptic culture and history. Thank you!

The guides were amazing and the tour was very very nice! Plus we got to take wonderful pictures ❤️
