Our Tour Guide from Egypt Tailor Tours asked us if we would like to go the Papyrus Institue and I am so glad we said yes. We throughly enjoyed the free welcome drinks and demonstration on how papyrus is made. The assistant was knowledgable and friendly. He showcased the art available for sale, and was easy going and happy to help us and/or just let us browse. I was thrilled with my purchase (best souvenir of our whole trip) and my girls love their custom papyrus posters bearing their names.
