Centrally located, the Egyptian Museum is a must see for a first time traveler to Egypt. The often crowded museum has artifacts dating well before BC including the burial masks of King Tut. It is an amazing place. Like most museums you really don't need a guide unless you want to learn the in-depth history of the pieces you are seeing, they of course, will help with any logistical issues which may come up. I visited the museum as part of a city tour, so I had a guide and he was a fountain of knowledge. The mummy museum is an extra charge. While could spend forever learning about all the artifacts we spent a couple of hours and that was fine by me. From the museum it was on to Coptic Cairo an old town area of ancient churches from the minority faiths in Cairo. Egypt was a Coptic Christian country until the Muslim conquest. Here you will learn about those faiths and how they fit in to Egyptian history. A guide is very helpful here. He will get you to the location, through security and into the museums. The houses of worship are nothing spectacular, it is their historical significance which is important. Cairo is a difficult city to get around in because of the traffic. Having a guide and driver removes a lot of stress getting from place to place. This was a half day tour which might be expanded to one other stop to complete the day. Cairo Tower? Just a recommendation for my new friend Omar Mohammad and his team.
