Cairo

Home to the Great Pyramids of Giza and the must-see Egyptian Museum, Cairo is where you usually start a tour of Egypt. Bustling and often frenetic, Cairo gives you both a cultural fix, but also a chance to soak up local Egyptian life. The Nile snakes through this vast city, and on either side, you find mosques, churches and synagogues aplenty. Take an immersive walk through Islamic Cairo, climbing up minarets to see the skyline. Delve into the souqs for a coffee or a local lunch. The Pyramids are of course the main draw, and this is complemented by a visit to the Egyptian Museum. Here, marvel at the Tutankhamen’s treasures and be sure to visit the Mummies Room. For those with a particular interest in Egyptology, head south to explore Memphis, Sakkara and the Doshur Pyramids. There is also a host in interesting small museums such as the Gayer Anderson Museum and Manial Palace. Needless to say, we private the finest guides to ensure your tour of Egypt is truly unforgettable.
