Best things to do in Cairo

You can't swing a hookah in Cairo without striking archeological treasure! "The City of a Thousand Minarets" boasts not only stunning Ottoman mosques, but ancient wonders and a clash of modern and traditional cultures. Here's what to see.

Planning Your Visit

  • When to go?

    The best time to visit Cairo is from October through to May, when the weather isn't insufferably hot. Hotels are cheaper during its scorching summer, but don't settle for a place without air conditioning and a pool!

  • How many days?

    Book 3 or 4 days minimum just for sightseeing, but a full week is recommended for archeological day trips, or simply to uncover the many sides of Cairo's vibrant culture.

We spent a very special day with our guide, Maged, and our driver, Mustafa. The pick-up was timely, the car was clean and air conditioned. Maged was very knowledgeable about the monuments and history around that time. He answered all our questions and was clearly very passionate about ancient Egypt. He also took some amazing photos! After visiting the sites, we were taken to the 3 Pyramids Papyrus Institute, where we were left to peruse on our own. We were told that his store was regulated by the government, implying it was trustworthy. The artwork was beautiful and the lady who explained the process of making papyrus was pleasant. When it comes to the pricing, we paid much more than the regular value of the artwork. It seemed like the pricing was fixed, but it was not. At this point, Maged’s guidance would have been helpful. He did however again organize some gifts for us from the shop as a birthday gift, which was very nice of him. A similar situation occurred at a perfume store.

A lot to see in a say but very do-able. Starting in Memphis with some time to meander around pieces and parts and then to Dashur for the Red and Bent Pyramids. Enter both and take a good look. Finally to Saqqara for Step Pyramid and surrounding structures. Also worth a look inside. Our guide was Michael and very informative. He moves fast for old folks but he’s great with questions. Farouk was driver and maneuvered around with ease. A great day and a good value. We finished early and ended up at both essence shop and papyrus shop but really no pressure at either place and I’m sure these add ons could be politely declined. A great educational day.

Breathtaking experience! Our guide, Mohamed Kafafy and our driver were both incredibly efficient, friendly, and kind! We did not have to worry about anything, because Mr. Kafafy took care of everything and we were able to just enjoy the experience. We saw an incredible number of sights and experiences (plus have delicious lunch) along the way. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we appreciate his personal sense of Egyptian history and pride. We bought incredible souvenirs from the carpet school, the papyrus museum and the perfume store. We truly recommend this experience fully! Shukran Jazilan Thank you so much!

Mahmoud was a best tour guide for Pyramid tour! He was fun, we could make joke each other, made us feel comfortable. He could answer our any questions, full of acknowledges, very good at taking pictures that we didn’t need to worry about taking photos at the most famous place in the world. He bought us juice because I asked, introduced good local restaurants, he even cross the street together to go restaurants because crossing could be dangerous. Thanks Mahmoud! You made us a good memory and we felt lucky to meet you :)

This company was great!! I booked 1 day tour from Cairo to Alexandria, family of 4, private tour. Company got in touch with me a day before so I knew what to expect, were in the hotel on time. Adam was my guide, very kind and knowledgeable. Transportation was comfortable with good AC. Lunch was in the Fish Market restaurant which have an awesome view on the Mediterranean sea. Driver was very good and friendly. I will recommend booking here.
