What people are saying about National Papyrus Museum, Giza

We had the pleasure of embarking on the tour led by Dina. From start to finish, every expect of the tour exceeded our expectations. Dina seamlessly blended historical insights turned the trip into a journey through time. Moreover Dina demonstrated exceptional professionalism and organization, ensuring that the tour ran smoothly. Overall, i cannot recommend Dina and this tour higly enough. Thank you, for a truly unforgettable journey.

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!
