Start with a hotel pickup, and travel by air-conditioned minivan to the Egyptian Museum in central Cairo. On route, hear an informed introduction to the museum from your private, qualified Egyptologist guide. If there’s anything you want to see more or less of, let your guide know. Your tour itinerary can be tailored to your preference.

Home to more than 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, the museum’s main treasures lie in its Tutankhamun collection, an array of antiquities from the reign of the boy pharaoh, including his gold death mask and six gilded coffins. The museum also houses near-countless other treasures including everyday objects, tombs, jewelry and mummies from the prehistoric Egyptian period through to the Roman era.

Knowing where to start can be daunting, so let your guide introduce you to the highlights. View the Tutankhamun exhibits, including his spectacular, solid gold death mask; chariot and other funerary riches. And admire other prize exhibits, such as pharaonic sarcophagi and everyday objects, Roman-era funerary paintings and more.

If you wish, visit the Royal Mummies Room (additional cost), another museum showpiece. Enter this climate-controlled room to view the mummies of Egyptian rulers such as Ramses II, builder of Luxor’s Karnak Temple.

After introducing you to the main attractions, your guide will give you free time to explore further, at your leisure.

If you wish, following your time at the museum, take the opportunity to visit a Papyrus Institute to learn about this ancient form of writing and art, painted onto papyrus canvases. Perhaps buy some papyrus scenes as souvenirs (own expense), before your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

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.

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.

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.
