Carol expertly guided us around the Palace and shared so much knowledge with my adult daughter and I without making us feel overwhelmed with dates and facts. She answered all of our questions and even managed to show us some hidden spaces not available for general viewing. Definitely recommend!

Interessante scoperta del mondo Martini, esperienza da consigliare a tutti, appassionati e non! Mi raccomando di terminare la visita con un cocktail e giretto nello shop

Our guide Salvatore was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. One of the best guides we have had. We highly recommend him.

Excellent guide, very knowledgeable. Interesting museum, takes you beyond the Hollywood clichés of ancient Egyptian culture.
