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.

We had the pleaser of having Mohamed Osama as our guide on this tour. He discussed in great detail the history of Egypt, their culture, and their religion. He welcomed discussions and questions on the differenced between our culture and religion. He has a well versed knowledge base and I highly enourage booking this tour and requestion Mohamed as your guide.

Museum is absolutely fascinating, and citadel is impressive. Could do without the bazaar they're the same everywhere but glad we went!

Mohammed Atef was an outstanding guide and is highly recommended. He was extremely polite, knowledgeable and communicated the right amount of information. Ideal for those that want to skip the large groups found on the big tour buses.

our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. My husband being a history buff, had a great time chatting with the guide about Egypt's history.

This is absolutely the way to see three of the biggest attractions in Cairo and be home in time for dinner. We do not usually book private tours, but were so grateful we did in Cairo as the city is so packed and busy, it would be difficult to navigate on our own or to keep up with a larger group. Our guide was kind and knowledgable, picked us up at Katameya which is outside the city center, and even translated so we could haggle in the bazaar. I didn't deduct a star for this, but would recommend you not get the lunch that comes with this tour. It is clearly a restaurant catering to tour groups and was poor buffet quality.

Another amazing experience. Was so impressed by the team that Viator set me up with. I am eager to book another adventure with them when I visit Athens later in the year. The guide was very knowledgeable when it came to the Egyptian Museum. I learned a lot from him about the history of Egypt. Enjoyed the Mosque and learning more about the history of it. The market was also a lot of fun. My guide even bought me a cup of tea at one of the local spots. A great experience that I would recommend to anybody! Thanks to all for making this such a wonderful trip!

We went with a qualified Egyptologist Mr Ahmed, and it was my sister and nephew and #39;s first visit to Cairo. The tour was amazing and Mr Ahmed had extensive knowledge of the history of the sites. He was also super patient with my young nephew. I highly recommend this to anyonr going to Cairo. Five stars!

Egyptian museum was amazing and really enjoyed and took advantage of the private time offered to walk around on my own. The Alabaster Mosque was interesting to walk through but a short visit. The market was typical, but interesting to see. The stop at the perfume shop was unnecessary and focused on a sale...but they made it somewhat interesting. The lunch was Ok/good...but overpriced. Definitely recommend using a private transfer and guide, it was a great and safe way to get around. Transfers were safe, air-conditioned and excellent. Pickup was about 30 min late due to heavy traffic getting into the city.
