Tour Egypt’s Amazing Palaces

Egypt Historical Tours

Cairo's palaces and mansions, featured prominently in our Cairo travel guide, are an extraordinary day trip destination and offer a fantastic opportunity to learn about the history of places once inhabited by royalty or aristocrats, where the city's high society used to convene.

Only on our Around Egypt in 14 days (14 Days in Egypt Tour) do we offer our exclusive Palaces of Cairo tour: a 1-day add-on for the standard arrival day (day 1). On this Egypt history tour, you get a head start on your Egypt experience by beginning with a visit to two of the most lavish palaces in Cairo, that have a world of fascinating stories to tell.

You will begin our Egypt historical tours with a visit to the posh Heliopolis district of Cairo to see the Baron Empain Palace. The palace was constructed in 1911 by Belgian architect Alexandre Marcel, whose works include the French Embassy in Tokyo and several projects for King Leopold II of Belgium. Inspired by Hindu temples, the impressive mansion was built at the behest of Baron Édouard Empain, a wealthy Belgian entrepreneur and amateur Egyptologist. The estate was occupied by the Baron's family until the early 1950s, after which it was abandoned and fell into disrepair. After an extensive restoration project by the Egyptian government, the palace has been returned to its former glory. Venture inside, and you may feel echoes of the ghosts of the Baron and his family that are rumored to wander the halls.

Next on our Egypt history tour you will tour El Manial, the site of the Prince Muhammad Ali Palace and Museum. The palace is an architectural showcase and is surrounded by verdant historical gardens and a forested nature park. Step inside and find yourself transported back in time to the 19th-century Alawiyya Dynasty, where the dazzling collection of manuscripts, textiles and masterpieces of brass and crystal surround you.

Lose Yourself in Egypt’s Culture

This is done by visiting not only various Egypt historical landmarks and objects of religious worship and museums, but also by participating in Egyptian festivals and celebrations, cultural events, as well as in everyday life.

On our Egypt classic tours you will visit the local markets and the oldest bazaar in Cairo - Khan el Khalili Bazaar. It will be an opportunity to talk with the Egyptian people and learn the art of haggling, while shopping for oriental souvenirs there.

The regional cuisine is also strongly related to the tradition and culture of Egypt. You will be able to sample the delicious Egyptian cuisine in local restaurants on our tour, as we will eat lunches in typical Egyptian restaurants famous for their tasty food.
