CAIRO – 26 March 2018: Ever wanted to take a selfie with Queen Nefertiti? That's just one of the many unique experiences offered up at the groundbreaking "Night At the Museum!", a virtual reality guided tour event at the Egyptian Museum, taking place on Thursday, March 29.
Hosted by the "Walk Like an Egyptian" tourist initiative, this limited number event breathes life into Egyptian tourism like nothing else, allowing visitors a chance to experience Ancient Egypt as if they were really there. Apart from basking in Nefertiti's beauty, visitors will also have a chance to meet Ramses face to face and learn more about the Pharaoh Akhenaton, who introduced the idea of monotheism (worship of one God) to Egypt.
This event surely marks the incredible ways technology can be used to recreate life from Ancient Egypt, allowing tourists a chance to live and experience Egypt's rich ancient past as if they were there, and proves how technology can truly revitalize Egyptian tourism.
The "Walk Like an Egyptian" Initiative was founded in 2013 by an experienced tour guide who had been working since 2006. Its aim is to provide a whole new dimension to Egyptian Tourism, serving to make it memorable and authentic. Made up of a growing network of tourist and Egyptologists with well over a decade of experience, the initiative has been instrumental in helping to uncover the beauty of 20 different ancient places in the Cairo region alone since 2015, and many more outside of it.
