  • Everything was great but I felt a hard sale push which is ok if you are not a bit tired and not mastered the exchange rate The sales lady was very good in her job though
  • Our guide brought us here and we are so glad he did! Hospitality at its finest. No pressure to buy. Lovely demonstration of papyrus making. We did find two pieces that we couldn't live without, and now they will include a wonderful memory of this place too. I highly recommend coming here whether you are buying or just looking.
  • Excellent collection, very well orchestrated briefing how to make papyrus. Must visit place for tourist.
  • Really enjoyed visiting here as part of my trip. The prices are very expensive, but the quality is good. I ended up getting five pieces for the initial first price I was given for one. As a foreigner, I understand it's par for the course - people complaining about it being expensive, tell them what you are willing to pay and come up with a price you're happy with. The person giving the papyrus demonstration was lovrly - great saleswoman.
  • Very interesting. Not pushy. Clean. Air conditioned.
