After a short drive, reaching the Baron Empain's Palace reflects the giant status of its owner Edward Louis Joseph Empain, a Belgian businessman. He was awarded the title "Baron" by the King of Belgium based on his economic contributions and marked a significant milestone in the urban landscape Heliopolis.
It is a distinctive and historic Hindu temple-inspired mansion that stands out in the desert landscape Heliopolis, a suburb northeast of central Cairo.
The interior design of the palace consists of three floors topped by a roof. A large garden from all sides surrounds the palace. The basement contained a residence for the palace's servants and consisted of rooms connected by corridors and doors. In contrast, the palace's roof comes as an open space on one of the towers' sides, characteristic of the Baron Palace.
Finally, the bus will be waiting to drop your return at your hotel in Cairo.

FAQs

A. When and where does the tour start/end?
Your tour will start/conclude in your hotel as its private daily tour for approximately 04 hours from 08.00 AM till 01.00 PM.
B. Do you arrange the camera photography?
Yes, this tour visits the Baron Empain's Palace. However, for some clients who wish to use their camera inside the palace (against charges), many monuments have signs that say, "No Flash Photography," please obey these signs (you can be ejected from the site if you ignore the warning!). The very bright flash can cause severe damage to some of the ancient paintwork!
C. Do you arrange airport transfers?
Private airport transfers are when you and your travel companions order pre-booked transportation to your destination. Airport transfer fees usually start at about $10 per person one way. In other words, it's not in this tour fare; you can expect to pay at least an additional $20 per person for transportation to and from the airport. Typically, you are met at Cairo airport by a Geoota Travel driver & Guide holding signs with names outside of the arrival hall's baggage claim.
