Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, Tutankamun & Tahrir Square
If you can only afford a half-day tour in Cairo as your time is tight, take a tour of the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities and learn ALL about the ancient Egyptian civilization. Your visit to the museum will undoubtedly give you an insight into the Egyptian history, culture and civilization.
At the museum you will see the breath-taking collection of the famous infant-king Tut-ankh-amon, including the king's golden mask. You will also see masterpieces devoted to other kings and queens such as the figures of the pyramid builders, Cheops, Chefren and Mycerinus. You will also see the incredible mummies of the ancient Egyptians which still have tissue, hair and fingernails. I have good news for you; now you can take as many pictures as you like when you go around the Museum.
After your visit to the Museum, go around Tahrir Square. It's at this square that the Egyptian Revolution started on January, 25th, 2011.

Our private tour of the Cairo museum with Tarek was a highlight of our stay in Cairo. Tarek is a Cairo university professor with a wealth of knowledge and was able to provide a detailed timeline and background to the many highlights of the museum. I would recommend Tarek to anyone wanting a private tour of the museum or any of the attractions at Giza or Saqqara
