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.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE OVERALL! Esraa Ahmed did an excellent job with the whole tour. She made it a very welcoming environment, helped and collaborated with us in anything we asked for . The driver Mr Sayed, also provided us with a safe, and welcoming car ride. My family and I are so grateful for their kindness and humbleness in helping us have a Super experience. Our second driver Sobhy was really nice as well with our services and tour guide through the desert. He also cooked very good lunch for us. My baby enjoyed it. Thank you I’m grateful for it all. I recommend you them 100%.

O tour foi incrível graças ao excelente trabalho do Guia Mohsen e do Motorista Mohamed. Eles foram sensacionais, super prestativos e muito gentis durante todo o tour. Mohsen explicou detalhes de tudo com muita atenção para saber se estávamos realmente entendo. Eles conseguiram nos deixar muito à vontade, confortáveis e seguro por todo o tour. Muito obrigado!
