You will not find better prices for REAL art and the demonstration is just fantastic. Have your tour guide barter for you and thank me later.

After viewing the pyramids we stopped here as suggested by our tour guide. We were given a brief history of papyrus paper and shortly after we were shown various framed art pieces for sale. I thought they were on the pricey end so I declined the art piece my son really wanted but the guy who worked there said to... More

We stopped here quickly while on a day tour. The information on making of the papyrus is great. The sales pitch and selling of work is over priced and to expensive .

The salesman will show / demonstrate you how to make a papyrus paper. Some of them are glow in the dark with different picture. Pretty nice. The cheapest one is bookmarks (about $1), and the most expensive one is the biggest / the most complicated ones.

After a 2 minutes explanation of how papyrus is made, they'll try to sell to you a piece 10 to 20 times the value you can find a better quality one if you dare to walk around downtown Cairo. It's the classical stop for a tour bus were they use you as a business transaction.

We were given an explanation papyrus manufacture, and that was interesting for about 5 minutes. After that, there really is nothing worth seeing or, in our opinion, worth buying. This was the least satisfying of any location we visited in two full days of touring Cairo.

I'm glad we stopped because we learned a lot about how papyrus is made and how to spot the fake ones. After learning about how papyrus was made and used, it made it more meaningful when we saw them displayed in the Egyptian Museum.

The sales people here are so pushy and rude and keep telling you different prices. I walked out of there really pissed off.
