Good to go with kids n very knowledgeable..They have real papyrus growing .Also the short role plays about ancient Egyptian happenings n their daily life is really worth visiting. A very good photo opportunity..The boat ride n visit to the royal n peasants house holds are awesome.The replica of the child King Thukthankhamen also very very good..

The village is a knockoff of many of the real Egyptian historical sites all mushed together in one place. You'll find a "typical" temple and a "typical" noble mans house, poor replicas of king tuts treasures, a plastic mummy and many other items that you can find for real if you visit the actual sites in Egypt or the Egyptian...

There is plenty of parking, a dubious ticketing system and a ferry boat to bring you to the island. Despite it's just 50m to go, the ferry is waiting until full which can take ages. I found this annoying.... More
