What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Egyptian Museum, Alabaster Mosque, Khan el-Khalili

The Egyptian Museum in Cairo

Your tour kicks off in the halls of the iconic Egyptian Museum. This architectural wonder houses some 165,000 artifacts—including treasures belonging to King Tutankhamun— and attracts millions of visitors each year. Follow your guide through the galleries of this Cairo gem and check out the death mask and six gold coffins that belonged to this famed ruler. 

After you’ve explored the Egyptian Museum, make your way to the Alabaster Mosque at the Citadel of Salah el-Din. Widely recognized as the most important mosques in Cairo, this destination sits atop a limestone hill and welcomes visitors of all faiths to wander the grounds. Your guide will explain the basic tenants of Islam and even translate some of the religion’s most common prayers.

Next, journey into the chaos of Cairo’s Khan el Khalili bazaar. Learn how this famous market may have inspired Christopher Columbus to set sail in search of America and comb through stalls selling handmade crafts, paper products and other local goods while you test your bargaining skills.

Because this is a private tour, you’re free to determine how much time is spent at each of the destinations, making for a truly personalized experience. Travelers can opt to visit the Papyrus Institute to learn more about how this famous artwork is crafted.

Truly an incredible sight and totally amazing place to visit, and one of the best place to visit. Starting off with the Egyptian Museum which gave us an amazing opportunity to witness first hand the wonders of an ancient civilization plus the great highlights emphasized by the young Egyptologist which have amazed us more about the Egyptian Ancient Civilizations. Would highly recommend friends and colleague to take up this tour package before approaching the Pyramids.

REALLY enjoyed this!! I was picked up on time. My guide Hammad was FANTASTIC. He really knew Egyptian history, culture, etc. He could tell me so many interesting facts about the main pieces in the Egyptian Museum. He answered every question I had. I was very impressed with his knowledge and patience. My tour included a stop at a perfume shop and papyrus museum/shop. As the only person in the group, I had the power to say I wanted to skip the trip to the market. The whole tour was worth the price. LOVED IT. Thank you.

All the places were fantastic! Our guide Ramon was so knowledgable and enthusiastic about everything! Don't go to the museum without a guide-there's too much, you'll be lost!
