Description

You start your day tour at 8 am with a visit to the Egyptian Museum. Take a unique journey back in time to the world of the ancient Egyptians and experience history at first hand. The Egyptian Museum is an absolute must for every visit to Egypt The famous museum contains the world's largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts and the unique architecture of the museum alone will amaze you. Inside this fascinating building, 107 halls house magnificent collections of ancient objects dating from prehistoric times to the Roman Empire. However, the largest part of the collection consists of treasures from the time of the pharaohs

Admire remnants of Egyptian history and view finds from the tomb treasure of Tutankhamun, death masks, royal mummies and jewellery In the basement you can view several collections of papyri and ancient coins as well as artifacts such as statues and coffins from the Kingdom of Egypt. On the first floor you can view royal mummies of illustrious pharaohs and queens. Stroll also through the beautiful museum garden where you will find the grave of August Mariette, the famous archaeologist and founder of the museum.

After an optional lunch break you will visit the Old Cairo. Although the quarter is quite small, the place is full of rich history. The old city of Cairo is also known as the Coptic Quarter, Fustat and Masr al-Qadima. Lose yourself in the narrow alleys and explore the many churches such as the Hanging Church.

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.
