Know More about this tour

First built in Boulak, in 1891 it was moved to the Giza Palace of "Ismail Pasha" which housed the antiquities that were later moved to the present building.

Housing 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, The egyptian museum in Cairo attracts millions of visitors each year. The highlight for most are the rooms containing the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun. His 6 gold gilded coffins, each one smaller and more intricately decorated than the last, dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the must-see item of the day.

The Royal Mummies Room (additional cost) is another highlight of The egyptian museum. Here you can see the mummies of many great Egyptian rulers, including Ramses II, the builder of the temples at Abu Simbel. Throughout the rest of the museum you will find countless Egyptian artifacts dating back thousands of years. Your guide will introduce you to the most important pieces before allowing you free time to explore at leisure.

This is a private tour allowing you to determine the amount of time spent at the museum. In addition you will have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how this famous artwork is made and have the chance to purchase genuine items if you wish. If you do not want to include this visit, just inform your guide on the day.

    Our guide was incredible and the museum is amazing!

    Poor service by the guide assigned to us. Our guide was not interesting on showing us anything. He was on such a rush and we fell like he made us run thru the museum. We spend less than 2 hrs inside the museum.

    We had a good time on this tour. Mohammed was very knowledgeable about the artifacts in the meusem.

    The Egyptian Museum is so full of antiquities that navigating it alone would deprive you of the full experience. In many instances, the signs are very small, not fully informative and often not accessible due to other patrons. Having a guide to fully explain the significance of each piece was critical to our full appreciation and enjoyment of the museum. Highly recommend.

    Our guide, Fouad, made sense of a magnificent but disorganized collection of thousands of years of history. I'm sure we would have enjoyed the museum's thousands of artifacts anyway but Fouad added the historical context and led us to some of the lesser known items. A guide for this museum is a must-have. Fouad was fluent in english with very little accent so very easy to understand. He also provided translations of several of the hieroglyphics to make understanding the artfacts much easier.

    Incredible guide and fantastic service from South Sinai as always. Would never consider using a different agent, everyone we have dealt with there has become a friend. What more could you take home from a holiday.

    If you are lucky enough t have Amged as your guide and Naser as your driver, you will have a superb, professional, tailored experience. I cant say enough good things about either of them. My traveling companion uses a wheelchair and every part of the tour was carefully thought out and made accessible.

    The guide was friendly but was hurrying things. Although the tour was for 3 hours, the guide finished it in 1.5 hours excluding travel which was about 15 min
