The Pharaonic Village is located on Jacob Island, about six miles from the center of Cairo (see our map, below), and not far from many of the hotels in the area. The Village is open for visiting from 9 AM to 9 PM from July to September, and 9 AM to 5 PM the rest of the year. A guided tour of the village lasts about two hours.
The tour fee is $11.75 per person, and children under four years of age tour free.
The Ragab Papyrus Museum
An optional additional tour will take you to the famed Ragab Papyrus Museum, the largest floating museum in the world and one of the Seven Wonders of Modern Egypt, to see at first hand the ancient Egyptian art of papyrus paper making. This tour is provided at no extra cost.
