What people are saying about Egyptian Museum of Turin

Sylvia is an excellent guide and so knowledgeable. So worth doing this guided tour with her as you get so much more insight and history of the Egyptians. She is so personable and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour - Thank you Sylvia.

Excellent excursion by a professional knowledgeable Egyptologist. This is the 2nd largest collection of Egyptian artifacts after Cairo. My kids of 12 and 15 were fascinated by the story. We highly recommend this excursion.

Everything worked like clockwork. The explainations were very complete. However, I thought the importance of Drovetti in assembling and selling the collection in 1824 (?) was not explained at all

Thanks a lot to our super guide, with his enormous passion in telling us events, moments, well he catapulted us back in time, really talented, precise and very open to further questions.

No way we would have understood the history and significance of the royal palace and Egyptian museum without a tour guide! Worth every penny!
