One of my favourite places to visit in Cairo and a great Cairo tour introduction for anyone wanting to understand the monuments of Egypt is the Pharaonic Village http://www.pharaonicvillage.com. I first went in 1986, before the days of digital photography and took reels of photos. It was like watching the tomb paintings come to life. All the scenes from the famous tombs of Luxor but with real people acting them out. Agricultural scenes, fishing, tomb painting, making mud bricks, there was so much to see at the this famous Cairo attraction. A definite top sites to visit in Cairo.
They also have a replica Egyptian temple but painted just as it would have been in ancient times. A noble house and countless exhibits and attractions right in the heart of Cairo. Dr Ragab founded it and had the vision to make it what it is today.
Remember when planning your Cairo tour you can visit Tutankhamen’s tomb without going to the Valley of Kings. That is right, one of Cairo’s attractions is a full replica of the tomb of Tutankhamen in the heart of Cairo, Egypt. Even the treasures found in the Cairo museum can be found as Howard Carter saw them.
I really encourage you to go, there is a competition at the moment where you can win free tickets http://competwition.com/pharaonicvillage
