Cairo is Egypt’s frenetic capital – perfect for exploring and soaking up Egyptian life. Rising from the desert are the famous Pyramids of Giza, whilst the labyrinth souks pulse with energy. The Nile cuts through the city like a giant river snake; once an ancient transport route, it’s now a haven of activity for visitors. Cairo is a great luxury travel destination for both couples and families.
Head to the Khan-el-Khalili bazaar, home to a jumble of artifacts sold by seasoned merchants in a maze of tiny streets. Afterwards, visit the Egyptian Museum, where ancient treasures are piled up against the walls. Allow us to arrange a guide for you. They’ll bring history to life and lead you to Tutankhamen’s golden mask. Overlooking the city is the medieval Citadel, which we recommend visiting for panoramic views. One of our favorite things to do in Egypt is sitting and enjoying a drink with the Cairenes – the city is dotted with fabulous little teahouses.
