Cairo – Al Kahira – brings to mind visions of ancient temples, exotic markets and millennia of history. We will take you on a private tour with an egyptologist tour guide who speaks your language. You leave the hustle and bustle of the mega city with its horrendous traffic and noise from a million voices, horns, vendors, and enjoy the tour to the Pyramids and the Sphinx in a horse-drawn carriage or on camelback.
Explore Old Cairo and walk through the streets that Nagib Mafouz made famous in his Cairo Trilogy. Browse through Khal el Khalili, an ancient market with restaurants (Fishawy’s) and coffee shops that are mentioned in literature. Visit the palaces and get an impression of the architecture and the lifestyle of 100 years ago.
The Egyptian Museum with its wealth of displays should be on the list of every traveller with an interest in Egyptology. You stroll through 6000 years of history and see the best known finds of Tutankhamen’s tomb.
Enjoy the magic of Egypt’s capital with us, before (or after) following us to Luxor or Aswan for a Nile cruise on our traditional dahabiya ABUNDANCE!
