Itinerary

Tour Program

Regardless if you are passing through the city or plan a longer stay in Cairo, don't miss the chance to join Sempre Travel Egypt for an unforgettable excursion. After picking you up from your accommodation in Cairo, we will take you, together with our experienced Egyptologist, to the   

Egyptian Museum, the famous Cairo Museum 


Egyptian Museum, you will notice that a visit to this Cairo Museum is everything else but boring. In a small group, we lead you into the fascinating Egyptian Museum, where you will be greeted by massive monumental statues that are already waiting for their visitors. One of the highlights in the Museum is the golden Mask and the grave goods of the child King Tutankhamun. You will be surprised by the filigree art of goldsmithing. The artists created some true masterpieces with the tools available at the time of the Pharaohs of Egypt.   

Another highlight are the countless mummies of various pharaohs of Egypt that show the impressive art of mummification. The mummies in the Cairo Museum are in a separate room protected from possible temperature fluctuations and once again reflect the presence of true masters in their working field thousands and thousands of years ago.   

In the Egyptian Museum, you will have enough time to inspect the interesting artefacts. It would take days to see the complete collection, but we are sure that this won’t be your last visit to one of the most famous museums worldwide.   

After the Cairo Museum, we drive to Cairos inner city, the pulsing heart of Egypt to the 

Saladin Citadel – Alabaster Mosque 


One of the best-preserved fortresses, the Saladin Citadel, built on Mokattam Plateau, offers you a good view over a large part of the city. If the visibility is clear, you can even see the Pyramids of Giza. Below the fortress is the Sultan Hassan Mosque and Ibn Tulun Mosque, part of Cairo Islamic quarter 

Mosque of Muhammad Ali (Alabaster Mosque) 


After an explosion in the ammunition dump destroyed part of the citadel in 1824, Muhammad Ali had a large mosque built in the destroyed area of the citadel. His son Said Pasha completed the construction until completion in 1857.   

Close to the Saladin Citadel is something that no one in the metropolis of Cairo would expect here, the "Green Lung" of Cairo, the Al Azhar Park, which the residents of Cairo often visit at the weekend to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.   

After enjoying the beautiful view over Cairo, we leave the Mokattam Plateau for a lunchbreak in a local restaurant in Cairo before we continue our excursion by driving to   

Khan el Khalili Cairo 


Located in the Islamic part of Old Cairo is one of the oldest and largest bazaars in Africa, the famous Khan el Khalili Cairo. With its big market (souq), you visit an oriental bazaar from the 14th century, built on a former mausoleum site as a caravanserai (Arabic = khan) and trading centre. Its name consists of the name and place of origin of its founder, Emir Dajaharks Al-Khalili.   

Nowadays, you enter Khan el Khalili Cairo through a gate that is left of the original three entrances to Khan el Khalili Cairo. The market has a turbulent past that you can still feel today as it became not just famous as a trading center for valuable stones in the 15th century but also as a place for the slave trade.   

Today the bazaar is the perfect place to find souvenirs from the wide range of fragrances, oils, teas and oriental handicrafts.   

After a stroll through the alleys of Khan el Khalili Cairo, we prepare for the drive back to your accommodation in Cairo with the best wishes for a pleasant Cairo vacation in this fascinating city.
