Shirene is one of the best tour guides i have ever encounterd. She is very knowledgeable and made everything quite interesting. Her driver was quite pleasant. The fresh mango juice is to die for!

This museum is amazing, so many antiquities. The treasures from Tutenkaman's grave are themselves enough reason to visit but be sure to hire a private guide, it is not that expensive and you learn so much more as the museum is not that well marked.

They charge you 50 pounds for bringing camera to take photos and it is worth to pay extra on top of entrance fee. There are so many historic artifacts including King Tut in the back of the second floor of museum. In some sense, too...More

This museum has several floors containing statues, tombs and various artifacts. Allow at least half a day, perhaps more than one visit to really appreciate everything that is on display.

Oh my gosh, I was like a kid in this museum. Standing amongst all of the ancient artifacts but the highlight was standing in front of King Tut's artifacts. Wow, what an amazing experience.

An absolutely fantastic museum with a huge array of antiquities. It's simply amazing the amount of items located within. I went around without a guide, and the museum is very lacking on an explanations, so I think for the extra cost it probably is worthwhile...More

This is a very big museum but when the new one is open it will be even bigger. It has so many statues, tombs and things to see, including mummies. The building itself is over 100 years old and hopefully will be used for many...More

Had been awed by the ancient relics in this museum. History at its best! Egyptian art is truly outstanding. A must see.

Putting the noticable military presence aside, perhaps the biggest issue is entering the museum and avoiding the trap of self-proclaimed guides trying to sell their services. I would advise if you want a guide, prebook a reputable one beforehand. Some of these guys are scam...More
