The architect of the building was selected through an international competition in 1895, which was the first of its kind, and was won by the French architect, Marcel Dourgnon.

Museum and market tour with a nice lunch on the Nile.
Matthew E, 24-04-2022
This was a really nice tour. Our guide Ehab picked us up from the hotel and drove us to the museum. He took an hour to walk us round the museum explaining the different ages and dynasties of Egypt's history.
We saw everything from arrow heads from millions of years ago to ancient building tools to modern day art.
He then left us for 30 minutes to go through the royal mummies area of the museum which was pretty interesting and a little gory.

We then headed to an open top boat for lunch which was very nice. BBQ kebabs and chicken with bread and dips.

Then we headed to the market where he guided us around the safer parts and actively engaged with vendors to drive down prices by promising them he would bring more tourists if they give decent prices.

Once we had bought all the perfume we could ever use we headed back to the hotel to get ready for the Nile dinner cruise. But that's a different review.

All in all a very organised day. We felt relaxed, informed and safe throughout. I would book again.

Nothing but excellence : presentation, knowledge, command of English . Thank you Ahmet . We will recommend you to anyone in need of a passionate and knowledgeable guide to the Egyptian history and culture. Mate u are seriously undervalued and underpaid for what you deliver with passion and eternal love of your people and your country.I mean it wholeheartedly.
You have established THE standard to which most off the guides we have met so far should aim for. Once again thank you and see u soon.

Alba was a fantastic tour guide. She educated me on everything we saw in the museum and took great pictures. She also made me feel safe with her at the bazaar when the environment was a little overwhelming.

This tour was a perfect way to spend the day in Cairo!! Hussein, our tour guide was very friendly and knew all the secret/ top shops in Khan el Khalili Market. He kept us safe at all times and took some amazing photos. Highly recommend this tour and Hussein as your guide. You will learn about Egyptian history and will ensure locals won’t take advantage of you.
