Full description
Head a few miles from the center of Cairo to where Egypt's history and art come alive. At the Pharaonic Village, you'll see faithful reproductions of buildings, clothing, and lifestyles, together with a complete replica of the tomb of Tutankhamen as well as museums relating to different periods in Egyptian history. The Pharaonic Village is an experience like no other. The instant you begin sailing down the canals that crisscross the island, you will be fully immersed in the Egyptian legend. Everywhere you look, you will find more of the sights and sounds of ancient Egypt. Travel back in time to a distant and glorious past.

The pickup was not as punctual as usual. But the journey itself went very quickly through Cairo. The driver was very friendly and tried very hard to put us in good hands on the spot. The canal cruise is really beautiful and the scenes shown were very well designed and interesting. At the end of the canal we were welcomed by a young woman who, to our chagrin, spoke no German but only English. We were guided through the small buildings and of course into various shops. She then left us with the information that we could only drive back in 3 hours. The whole tour should only take 3 hours! We then stood there alone, no idea what to do there for 3 hours... Of course we assumed that our driver would only be there again then. When we somehow wasted the time sitting around, we were able to return to the safe shore. Only the driver was missing.

Difficult to put a bad note because the shuttle was perfectly on time, the driver took us to very interesting places to make quality purchases and the visit to the site was with a very nice person as well. Unfortunately, the village does not deserve such praise. The small sketches at the beginning are interesting, but we have the feeling of bothering people… On the spot, what the guide shows is very interesting, but everything is wrong! We finished visiting the museums alone, and headed to the restaurant, what an adventure!!! Nobody in the restaurant during our first visit, and during the second, we couldn't be more disappointed with the food… Save your money to eat in a restaurant afterwards and discover Egyptian history in Cairo's museums!
