Do NOT purchase here. We paid almost 10x what it would have cost us in Hurghada. Enjoy the show and walk out of there without anything. Guides companies will take 50% of the sale for "referring you" and the guide receives 10% of that 50%,...More
A visit to this "Museum " is on the agenda for all of the tours to Luxor. To be fair there is no hard sell here, visitors get an interesting demonstration of how Papyrus is made and once that is over there is of course...More
