Start your tour at the Egyptian Museum. Designed by the French architect Marcel Dourgnon, the museum is located in a handsome neo-classical building on Tahrir Square. Its collections exceed 120,000 masterpieces, ranging from the pre-dynastic era, to the Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods. Undoubted highlights are the collection of rare treasures of King Tutankhamen, and the Mummies Room, which you can enter for a small extra charge.

Your guide will describe the story of their monumental construction, and tell you about their mysteries, before you explore inside one of the pyramids.
Proceed to the Great Sphinx, imposingly standing in the desert sand after thousands of years. Admire the colossal structure, before moving to the Valley Temple of the Pyramid of Cephren.
Drive back to central Cairo and end your day at the lively Khan El Khalili Bazaar. Master the art of bargaining for great prices on fine brassware, copper, perfumes, leather, silver, gold, and antiques.
