No, this isn’t some pyramid scheme to lure you to Giza. If you can afford it, it’s probably the tour of a lifetime. For $250 (INR 18,000), the Grand Egyptian Museum near Cairo is offering guided, crowdless tours of its 100,00-strong collection on Ancient Egypt, as well as its artifact restoration lab. We mention crowdless, as the complex expects to draw a massive eight million visitors on opening in 2020. With tight security—and absolutely no touching—this exclusive, four-hour preview also covers what's expected to be the main draw: the full contents of King Tut's tomb, laid out as Howard Carter first discovered it in 1922. Consider packing in the experience with a tour of Cairo's best: the Great Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure lie just two kilometres away from this archaeological marvel.
