Meet your private guide at your Cairo hotel, and travel to the heart of the city to visit the Egyptian Museum. Get a 'best-of' tour of the museum’s remarkable antiquities and artifacts, or tailor the visit to your personal interests, seeing animal mummies, golden treasures, hieroglyphs or ancient papyrus. See what archeologists have discovered from the first two dynasties of Egypt, and take in the treasures unearthed in the Valley of the Kings.
Browse a sprawling bazaar to learn the best ways to find, and bargain for, the perfect Egyptian souvenir, then peer through the fence at the eerie Baron Empain Palace, which was built in the early 20th-century to evoke Cambodia’s Angkor Wat. Continue to a Koshari restaurant in the affluent suburb of Heliopolis, where a team of local chefs will greet you with a drink and introduce you to Egypt’s national dish. Learn the humble origins and rich flavors of Koshari, and get tips on how to prepare the classic vegetarian dish at home before sitting down to a Koshari meal. Finish the day with return transfer to your hotel.
