Although the Egyptian Museum is better-known and probably more popular (judging from the crowds), we especially enjoyed our tour of the Royal Palace. It is very well preserved and there are fascinating collections (for instance the weapons and armor collection). Of course, the mummies and other artifacts from Egyptian antiquity are also extremely interesting. Our tour guide was dynamic as well as a captivating presenter who spoke excellent English. Combining a visit of the Royal Palace with the Egyptian Museum is a great idea for those with limited time (this was our case), although people may get a little tired at the end (4 hours of standing or walking).

We did the guided tour of the Royal Palace and the Egyptian museum and we were lucky enough to have Sofia as a guide, that is, an exceptional person for competence, education and great professionalism, we have 2 children one of 7 and one of 13 and she managed to keep them attentive for 4 HOURS ...... VERY GOOD !!!!!!
