It has two parts. The tour by river is amazing and the river area has many birds with good green landscape a palace to relax while on boat; I like it It is amazing . It is also good for kids. The second part which are supposed to be museums are really nothing and wasting time and money, most of them are just photos with some words from Wikipedia.Do not waste your time searching for those many fake museums.

The village is an excellent idea to show the tourists a taste of the great history of the pharaones in Egypt. The one good thing is the boat ride where you see a small model of the great kingdom, however the rest of the program need major change and improvements such as : - the 5 museums - the various igift shops - the 9D movie - the maze. Specially the last 2, the 9D movie very old small room not air-conditioned poor movie resulation and the most important is the subject of the movie (Terrified lady being slotterd by an electrical saw) can you believe showing such a movie to families and kids???? The so called maze is a very poor wood structure.

It could be improved by applying these changes since the idea of the village is outstanding.

When you buy a ticket you have to choose between various different options, we chose the tour plus three museums as we were interested in visiting the tomb of Tutankhamum, the mummification museum and the Nubian life museum. Unfortunately at this point they didn't tell us that most of the museum's are currently closed and the only ones you can visit are: Daily life, Heritage, Islamic, Mohamad Ali and President Nassar museums. These are mostly very heavy on written information and not very interesting for young children.
Children under 5 are charged 60LE despite it not being on the list of prices. The river cruise was interesting, and we learnt some things from the village tour but it was a bit spoiled by constantly being taken into shopping areas and encouraged to purchase various things.

History lovers dream!

You can walk through a life size replica of Karnak Temple with its original paint job. The original temple is now the color of the desert sand and has many broken and missing objects. The replica has exterior and interior paint, colored hieroglyphics, sculptures, and rows of undamaged ram sphinxes.

You can also walk through the home of both an ancient nobleman and a peasant, complete with costumed actors.

The Nile River boat ride around the island is a must see!!! Employees dressed in costume literally re-enact scenes from ancient Egyptian life. For example, farming (with live oxen), boat building, honey making, fishing, brick making, pottery making, sculpting, perfume making, etc.

I was mesmerized watching a recreation of the Biblical scene of Pharoah's daughter retrieving baby Moses from the actual Nile River.

You can walk through a recreation of King Tut's tomb, with the items in their exact original location. I have been to King Tut's tomb in the Valley of the Kings and seen his tomb items at the Egyptian Museum. But walking down the infamous stairs to the tomb and seeing it just like Howard Carter did was exhilarating.

There are 22 mini-museums: King Tut's Tomb, Cleopatra, Islamic, Coptic, Nasser, Napoleon, Nubian, etc

I don't see any need to book an online guided tour. All of the museum exhibits have signs in English. And you can Google anything you want to know more about. Except for the fact that you will then have a safe ride back to your hotel.

If you have never been to Egypt and wnat to understand some of the history, then this could be worth a visit. We were three English people on a break who have lived in the country for a minimum of 15 years.

We all said we had got something out of the time here, but those coming to Egypt for the first or maybe second time would get more.

The time and investment in creating the attraction has provided something that is very commendible and there is a good chance to learn about many, many different aspects of the country, it's history, and it's people through the ages.

A number of ticket options are availabe offering a choice of museums and collections to visit so there is something for all tastes. Guides were all very friendly and passed information to us in a good way - easy to understand and listen to.

Give yourself 3-4 hours if you do want to make a visit.

A nice recreation of village life in ancient egypt. A pleasant and informative way to spend an afternoon. Much bigger than I expected and quite well done. It's not like going to the pymairds or the Egyptian museum, but it is educational. Great if you have kids.
