What You'll Do
  • Explore the Egyptian Museum with a qualified Egyptologist guide
  • Visit the Salah El Din Citadel, a massive 12th-century fortress
  • Visit Old Cairo and browse the shops of the Khan el-Khalili bazaar
Overview
Experience Egypt’s rich history and culture on a private full-day tour with an Egyptologist as your guide. See the treasures of the Egyptian Museum, visit the Citadel of Salah El Din, and explore the vast array of shops in the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar.
What to Expect
Featuring more than 165,000 artifacts in its collections, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo attracts millions of visitors each year. This is the home of the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun. His gold or gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the must-see item of any visit.

On this full-day private tour your guide will ensure that you see the most important artifacts in the collections before you explore the Museum at your leisure.

Next you’ll proceed to the Cairo Citadel, a massive stone fortress built by Salah El Din beginning in 1176. It was home to Egypt's rulers for 700 years. Your guide will point out elements of Egypt's diverse heritage in the fortifications, palaces, masjid, and museums. The Turkish style Mohammed Ali Mosque, constructed between 1830 and 1848, crowns the Citadel.

Explore Old Cairo at the Khan el-Khalili bazaar, where your guide will provide an introduction to the famous market.

On this private tour you’ll be able to determine the amount of time you spend at each of the sites. In addition you’ll have the opportunity to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how this famous artwork is made and to purchase genuine items if you wish.

At the end of the tour you’ll be transferred back to your Cairo hotel.
