Itinerary

Tour Program

Pharaoh Village Egypt  


For the trip with your tour guide towards the Nile Banks, we start our tour Pharaoh Village Egypt and Al Azhar Park directly from your accommodation in Cairo.  

Boat trip  


A motorboat is already awaiting you at the Cairo promenade for crossing the Nile River to the Pharaohs Village Egypt located on the West Bank. 

Tour through the Village 


The Pharaoh Village Egypt, located in Cairo, hosts a variety of different exhibitions, such as Pyramids and Sphinx, Mummification and Medicine, Art and Religion, Cleopatra, Napoleon, Coptic and Islamic, a boat exhibit and a papyrus exhibition. Upon arrival in the village, you will meet actors in traditional costumes portraying everyday life in ancient Egypt as lifelike as possible. 

A walk through the village takes you back in time! At the same time, you will be impressed by the appearance of the old houses from the Pharaohs you see from time to time and don’t forget to take a look over the shoulder of the “residents” while they make some papyrus. 

Replica of Tutankhamun's treasures 


The village is also home to several museum, one of which shows Replica of Tutankhamun's treasures.

Amusement Park "Tut Land" 


Our tour to Al Azhar Park and Pharaos Village Egypt in Cairo is perfect for families with children. One of the attractions in Pharaos Village Egypt is the amusement Park “Tut Land” and another the “Art Center”. Here, children can learn more about the art of pottery, how to paint on papyrus, making papyrus boats, sculpting and making accessories.   

Bird exhibition 


Bird lovers will find an impressive number of birds in the village, such as the great egret, rock dove Columba, seagull, barn swallow, wagtail, white-throated kingfisher, Ceryle rudis, bluethroat Luscinia and many more. After the visit to the Pharaoh Village Egypt, we make our way to the beautiful   

Al Azhar Park 


The Al Azhar Park, now one of the most beautiful places of relaxation in Cairo, was communal garbage dumb for a very long time (about 500 years) and was only converted into one of the 60 largest parks worldwide with the help of Aga Khan and Trust for Culture in 1984 with coasts of around 33 million. This is how the so-called “green lung” of Cairo was created.   

While 80.000 truckloads of rubble have been removed for the construction of Al Azhar Park in Cairo, an Ayyubid city wall was discovered, dating from the time of Saladin in the 12th century.  

Al Azhar Park has become a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the big city and Cairo’s residents spend their free time in the park dining in one of the restaurants or enjoying traditional coffee.   

Enjoy the view from this beautiful park located on a hill in Cairo (Mokattam Mountain) and don’t forget to take some photos of the metropolis of Cairo, the Citadel and the Alabaster Mosque.   

With the visit of the Al Azhar Park, our Cairo excursion to Al Azhar Park and Pharaoh Village Egypt ends, and we take you back to your Cairo accommodation.
