Named after it’s owner Abidin Bey, its interiors and contents are considered make it one of the most grand Palaces worldwide. 
On walking around the spacious grounds, many Cannons are strategically places and were donated to the Egyptian Government by the British after the War in Egypt and 2nd World War. 
The most surprising element of the Abdeen Palace, is its vast collection of priceless gifts donated from all over the world from Kings, Princes, Governments, Army Generals and dignitaries. The Palace is now a Museum hosting up to 5 Museums including the Silver Museum, Arms Museum,Royal Family Museum, and the Presidential Gifts Museum with a new edition of the Historical Documents Museum.

The Royal Family Tombs - Cairo
After your first tour, you will be driven with your Guide to see the hidden and surprisingly ornate Royal Tombs from the 1879 to the 1892 Period in Egypt
Heading through Cairo after the Mohamed Ali Citadel, sits a ‘City of the Dead’ where many cemeteries lie with whole family communities living there.The Mausoleum of Mohamed Tawfiq and his Wife was said to be designed in it’s elaborate fashion by the architect who designed the  Khedive Palace Fabricius Bey. 
On entering the main gates of the Mausoleum, it looks surprisingly neglected and uncared for. It is hard to believe that this was the home of Royal Tombs. However, once entering the the Mausoleum, you will be amazed at the sheer size and ornate details of these main 2 Tombs decorate in what was known as ‘Ottoman Baroque’ style. His wife Amine, was known for her generosity to the poor and nick named the ‘ Mother of Charity’, therefore a wel respected royal figure. There are other smaller tombs within this room of other family members also. 
Moving on to a nearby location, you will end your tour to visit the Tomb of Princess Shanika, then you will be transferred back to your Hotel in Cairo.
