The museum also as a number of real mummies on display, but these have to be stored and displayed in a carefully controlled environment in a room known as the Mummies Room. Your Dubai to Egypt Tour Package does not include an admission ticket for the Mummies Room, but one can be purchase onsite on the day you visit.

Finally, you will be taken to Cairo’s famous Khan El Khalili bazaar which has seen vendors trading their wares ever since the bazaar was first created back in the 14th century. This is certainly not your average sort of bazaar or market, and it is often said that no trip to Cairo is complete without a visit to Khan El Khalili.
Sure, you will see plenty of touristy things, but the bazaar covers an immense area, and you can find almost anything imaginable if you look around. Are you looking for certain spices which are impossible to find in your own country? Fear not, you will find them at the bazaar. Even if you don’t intend buying anything, you probably will end up buying something. There is also no shortage of cafes and restaurants, so you can always take a break while you do some people watching.
After enjoying some time at the bazaar, your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel and you will have the evening to yourself.
