Explore millenia of Egyptian history as your historian guide leads you through the National Museum. You will admire Tutanhkamon’s gold mask, the animal statues that guarded his tomb, and a myriad other beautiful and mysterious objects from ages past.
Then, the Islamic quarter. Pass through the massive, thousand-year-old towers of the Gate of Conquest, and discover mosques, schools, fortresses and caravanserais. Admire wooden “mashrabiyya” windows and painted tiles in a 17th-century museum-house, and buy local craft at the Khan El Khalili Bazaar.
You will crown your day with a 5-star oriental dinner at Cairo’s best restaurant. With one day in Cairo an Egyptologist guide can show you more than the sights. You will travel through 4000 years of living history.
