Cairo: Historical Walking Tour with Local & Dinner

2. Cairo: Historical Walking Tour with Local & Dinner

Get to know the real Cairo on this downtown Cairo walking tour. For the next 4 hours, you’ll experience Cairo the way locals do, and see the city from their perspective. Start your Cairo tour at New Opera Square in Zamalek, winding your way through Cairo’s ancient and recent history, emerging, fittingly, at Old Opera Square near Attaba.  From the city’s most beautiful bridge spanning the Nile, you’ll head towards Liberation Square, which hosted many events during the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, and is a significant landmark in the city’s modern history. In addition to the beautiful 19th and 20th Century architecture featured in downtown Cairo, your walking tour will allow you to check out modern artwork in the form of graffiti. Typically, this graffiti expresses locals’ views towards the Revolution and various political parties. In this area, every corner has its own story to tell, with most intersections featuring a statue of an important historical figure. Not to worry - your local guide will help fill in any gaps to give you better context for what you’re seeing.  To cap off your local Cairo walking tour, indulge in a local dish: Koshary, in an authentic local restaurant. Koshary is a mix of rice, pasta, lentils, fried onions, and chili sauce, and is an absolute favorite. You’ll also have the chance to try Egyptian falafel and ice cream before the night is through, giving you a full taste of local life here, all in just 4 short hours!

Cairo: Private Great Pyramids of Giza Half-Day Adventure

5. Cairo: Private Great Pyramids of Giza Half-Day Adventure

Get ready, get set, for an experience of a lifetime – a half-day trip to the Great Pyramids of Giza!                The Giza Plateau is a formation of three pyramids, where a father, son, and grandson constructed their afterlife tombs and mapped their journeys to the afterlife. It’s still a bit of a mystery as to how the pyramids were constructed and how long they took to complete, but there’s no question that the pyramids still represent the pinnacle of ancient Egyptian architectural accomplishments. The whole area, really, continues to hold many secrets yet to be uncovered, making the pyramids one of the most alluring and inviting places in the world.  Why not tick off that bucket list item, and then some, with a half-day tour to the pyramids that’s going to prove to you why everyone reveres this site so much. What sets this Pyramids tour apart from the others is that you'll beat the tourists and arrive at the Giza Plateau well before the crowds and that ruthless midday sun. You'll also be treated to a local lunch! Pyramids, Sphinx, and lunch? Oh my!  The day starts by seeing the guardian of the necropolis, the Sphinx (you know, the one with the missing nose!), which stands in front of the second Pyramid of Khepren. Enter the Giza Plateau from the Sphinx Gate to beat the crowds to the site, and after seeing the Sphinx, walk to the mysterious great pyramid of King Cheops, where you can marvel at the sheer size of the construction, and try and formulate your own theories as to how it was built.  The Pyramids tour continues to the second Pyramid of Giza, which is the second largest and the only pyramid that still caries part of its original casing. From there, continue to the third and the smallest of the Giza Plateau pyramids. And no visit to the Pyramids of Giza would be complete without stopping at the panoramic view point where you get to see the all the pyramids of Giza in the one spot (and take a photo like the ones you see in travel books – free of tourists! Well, almost…)  Leaving the amazing pyramids behinds, head back out to the streets of Cairo and stop by a local restaurant for lunch. You'll be treated to Koshary, a dish of rice, pasta, lentils, fried onions, and chili sauce, and a favorite amongst young local Egyptians. After lunch, you'll be dropped back off at one of the starting points, where you can carry on your day (although the Pyramids are sure to have already been the highlight!).

Our Egyptologist guide , Mr.Hassan of Imesty Travel was very very knowledgeable and had the ability to bring alive the rich history behind the artifacts in this unique museum . I had visited it over three decades ago and Mr.Hassan had the talent to bring light on many issues which had not been brought to my attention during my previous visit . Mr. Hassan feels and lives this rich history as he describes and explains it .

Cairo was admittedly not my favorite city to visit but this tour and in particular our guide Mohammed was definitely a highlight, he was very friendly and knowledgeable and even continued to offer assistance and information beyond after we went other places - I can’t say I recommend Cairo but if you find yourself there i do recommend this tour

Punctual pick up, very prepared and nice guide, the museum is wonderful, but in a few months (they say October) they will transfer all the finds to the new one, so for those who want to visit the historic one, they must hurry.

Friendly and prepared guide. Unfortunately, some valuable pieces from Tuthankamon's collection were missing. Punctual and precise driver guard

great day with Margaret, very informative and breezy
