What to Expect
Take an amazing excursion through Cairo's history and culture on this full-day tour of the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Old Cairo ̶ all in the company of an expert Egyptologist guide.

Begin with a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. The museum houses the world's largest and richest collection of Egyptian artifacts, including the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamen.

Afterward, venture into Old Cairo to visit some of Egypt's most ancient churches and places of pilgrimage. Located at the gatehouse of an ancient Roman fortress, the Hanging Church is the most famous of Cairo’s Coptic churches. Bin Ezra Synagogue is one of the most important Jewish sites in the city, and a historic place of pilgrimage for North African Jews. Fourth-century Abu Serga Church stands on the site traditionally believed to be where the Holy Family rested at the end of their journey into Egypt. Al-Azhar Mosque dates from the 10th century and is located in an area teaming with beautiful Islamic monuments. As you explore Old Cairo, your guide will provide you with details of the area's rich and complex history.

Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant, then head to Khan el-Khalili Bazaar. Built in 1382, this historic bazaar remains a vibrant center of trade and communion in Cairo, offering a wide array of antiques and handcrafts, as well as numerous cafes and restaurants.
