After a hotel pickup in Cairo, travel with your private guide to the Egyptian Museum, home to more than 165,000 ancient Egyptian artifacts.

Gaze at the treasures of the boy-king Tutankhamun, including his gold death mask, and check out the museum’s eerie animal mummies. If you wish, visit the Royal Mummy Halls to see the mummies of pharaohs such as Ramses II. Entrance fees are at your own cost.

After a typical Egyptian lunch at a restaurant on El Maadi island in the Nile, continue to the massive Citadel of Saladin—the walled hilltop fortress that was the seat of power in Egypt for over 700 years. Explore some of the 12th-century fort, built by Saladin to defend against the Crusaders, and visit the 19th-century Mohammed Ali Mosque that dominates the citadel and Cairo’s skyline.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The museum was so vast that we could have spent all day there and not seen the best things. Our guide Mahmood Hoka was fantastic and was able to show us the most important displays. His English is excellent and he is very knowledgeable, answering any questions we asked. He allowed us time on our own after showing us what he considered to be the best things to see. He was very pleasant to spend the day with and we were lucky enough to have him for two different tours on two consecutive days. The citadel and mosque was very interesting, the lunch on Nile Island was good and we chose to have a short time looking in the bazaar..The flexibility allowed us to spend more or less time at each site. A thoroughly enjoyable day with an excellent guide. Dianne and Brian Cox
