The gigantic Egyptian capital stretches for kilometers. The Alabaster Mosque is one of the visual references of the city, as well as the citadel of Saladino, a medieval Islamic fortification that can be seen from different parts of the city.
One of the great attractions of any trip to Cairo is to get lost in the Jan el-Jalili souk, a network of narrow streets covered with numerous stalls where you can find all kinds of items: from the famous shishas, incense, papyri, spices or poufs made from camel skin, to clothing, antiques and costume jewellery. The Egyptians like to bargain very much, so purchases in any part of the country will be very economical. Another unmissable sight is the famed Egyptian Museum in Cairo, whose cabinets contain precious relics of Ancient Egypt such as vases, sculptures, friezes, paintings, personal belongings and sarcophagi found in the valley of the Kings. In the museum you can also see the treasure of Tutankhamun, and the mummies of some of the most important pharaohs in history. The pyramids of Giza, one of the wonders of the world, are located on the outskirts of Cairo.
Visiting El Cairo
“ ‘Just back from our ‘Land of the Pharaohs’ holiday and we had an awesome time. All of the guides and Reps were superb - very professional and they all spoke excellent English.’
“'We were lucky enough to have the guide, Khalid, to ourselves throughout the trip and found him to be extremely informative and knowledgeable about the country and also very good with time-keeping and ensuring that the tour ran smoothly. The guides were also thoughtful about the heat and also about the best way to see the sites before the crowds. We visited a great variety of Jordan’s most stunning sights, including iconic Petra, which we enjoyed walking around, even climbing up to the vantage point which gave us a great birds-eye view of the ancient city.'
“‘The meet and greet was spot on and the guide and driver were very good and commendable.’
