Full description
Avoid long ticket lines with skip-the-line entrance and spend more time inside the Egyptian Museum. Embark on a journey through the ancient Egyptian world in a museum boasting more than 120,000 objects and artifacts, some more than 5,000 years old. Upgrade your ticket to include a guided tour to get the most out of your visit. Upon arrival at the museum, skip the line and meet the local partner's representative at the entrance. Then, after receiving your ticket, either relish a day in the museum on your own or set off with your guide who will take you through every aspect of the museum and explain more about the place, as well as its valuable antiquities and artifacts. Don't miss the chance to admire King Tutankhamun’s famous death mask or the solid-gold mask. Get to see the mummies of Ramesses II and other items such as papyri, reliefs, funerary art, jewelry, and much more. By the end of your museum visit, you'll have made a close acquaintance with and grasped the essence of Egyptian history.

I had so much fun on this tour with Abdul! He was very kind and informative and knew SO much about the unique history of Egypt. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to explore the museum all on my own without his help! I would highly recommend this tour when visiting Cairo

We waited outside the gates of the museum but the rep with the tickets was waiting inside, this could have been made clearer to us on the information provided. We didn't have a guide just used 'Skip the Line' which as it happened there was no queue (due to the lack of tourists because of the Coronavirus) but when there is a queue it would be well worth doing.

An all-round great experience! As a woman alone in Cairo, I was looking for a pleasant way to visit the museum and not be ripped off while driving there. Everything went smoothly! The driver was at the hotel on time to the minute, the vehicle (in contrast to some Egyptian taxis) was clean and very well-kept, the driver spoke good English and had a lot to say about Cairo. Ahmad met me at the museum. He spoke fluent German and has a fantastic knowledge of Egyptian cultural history. Bit by bit he brought me closer to the greatest treasures of the museum, he had an answer to every question, it was a terrific experience. The return trip was also completely uncomplicated - perfect!
