What to Expect
Spend a day with an Egyptologist to learn many details about Egypt’s fascinating past. This full-day tour features stops at landmarks important to Egypt’s history.
Your first destination is the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, which houses 165,000 Egyptian artifacts. The museum hosts the treasures of King Tutankhamen, including his gold coffin with the iconic death mask. At the Egyptian Museum, your guide will introduce you to the most important pieces in the museum before allowing you time to explore the museum at your leisure.
From the Egyptian Museum, your guide will bring you to the Alabaster Mosque at the Citadel of Salah el-Din. Still used as a place of worship today, the Alabaster Mosque is the most important mosque in Cairo, and sits at the top of a limestone hill. Your guide will take you inside the mosque and give you an overview on the mosque’s history, a basic introduction to the Islamic faith, and translate some of of the most common Islamic prayers.
Toward the end of your private tour, your guide will take you to the famous Khan el Khalili bazaar. You will have plenty of time to explore the maze of streets, and you can even try your luck bargaining with the shop owners for a souvenir of your trip to Egypt.
