We took our 5 and 9 years old to the Pharonic village while on holiday in Egypt. Both kids and us loved it. They have several types of tickets. The ones we chose were the boat trip and guided tour. Kids liked what they saw during the boat trip...how paper was made from papyrus...cooking...boat making...planting, etc. Our 9 years old... More

This was a disappointment and I wish we hadn't wasted time here. It's maybe helpful for people to see in miniature some of the sites they should/will see in reality, but it's, frankly, tacky and phony.

This is one of the must see places in Cairo, really nice and surprising experience, really nice, polite and unlike any other place that I have been in Egypt you would feel safe from people looking at you like a bag of money. First thing you will do after visiting the Cleopatra museum is ride a boat in the Nile... More

You will taken by boat on a journey where the story of the pharaohs will shown on the banks. Not the cleanest of sites, some might find it a bit smelly and dirty, but worth it if you are interested in the history of it. They also have a souvenir shop, which actually has pretty cheap prices.

It's an interactive museum. I enjoyed all simulations of pharaonic daily life activities. I like souvenirs and photos wearing pharaonic clothes.

One Egyptian fried took me to see this place and I was absolutely thrilled. Many tourists dont even know about its existence. We went there by car, so not sure if there is public transport or not. You can dress up in real clothes in Egyptian style and they put your choice of background and produce really nice real photo... More
