Description

You will start your day tour at 8:00 am with a visit of the Egyptian Museum. While walking around the intriguing museum, you will embark on an adventure through time. No visit to Egypt is complete without a trip to the Egyptian museum of Cairo which contains the world's largest collection of pharaonic artifacts. The architecture of the museum is designed in Neoclassical style. Inside the fascinating building, you will find 107 halls filled with magnificent collections of antique objects dating from the prehistoric to the Roman period. However, the vast majority of the collection focusses on the pharaonic era.

Admire important pieces of ancient Egyptian history, for example you can explore the treasures of Tutankhamun, see models of daily life, statues and extraordinary masks. On the ground floor you can expect an extensive collection of papyrus and coins used in the Ancient world. There you will also find artifacts such as statues, tables, and coffins from the New Kingdom, the time period between 1550 and 1069 BC. On the first floor, you can visit the rooms of the Royal Mummies with remains of some of Egypt’s most illustrious pharaohs and queens. Do not miss to walk through the beautiful garden of the museum. There you will find the tomb of August Mariette, the famous archeologist and founder of the museum.

After an optional stop for lunch, you will visit Old Cairo. Although it is a relatively small area, it is filled with a rich history. Old Cairo is also known as Coptic Cairo, Fustat and Masr al-Qadima.In its narrow streets you will find a lot of churches, such as the Hanging Church. Take a walk through the beautiful quarter and discover the remains of the Babylon fortress, the Church of Abu Serga and Ben Ezra Synagogue, the oldest Jewish synagogue. Finally you can enjoy a comfortable transfer to you hotel.

The guided tour through the Egyptian Museum was very competent.

Rating by for

It began that the guide did not come alone, but with an extra driver. Of course, he wanted a bunch of tips in the end. I think that's bold for once. We agreed on a 30 euro tip. But even that was not enough for the tour guide at the end. He left us after the tour with a feeling that he had not fulfilled his expectations for the tip. That's pretty disrespectful. Once and never again! Rip-off! He explained a lot to us, whereby the 8 hour tour mentioned here was over after 5 hours (including a visit to a mosque --> 15 Euro extra). Wouldn't do it again

Reply of the supplier on 11. October 2017

Das ist nicht fair über das mosuqe hat er kein Geld von dir bekommen du hast ihm nur 15 euro bezahlt als Tipp für die Führung von deinem Herzen er nahm nicht 3o Euro, wie Sie erwähnen Bitte respektieren Sie uns, da wir unser Bestes für Sie getan haben.
