Hi, my husband and I will be arriving in Cairo on Oct. 27 and have 2 free days before our tour starts. I was wondering if in Cairo are there taxi's or tour guides for hire that you can pay to take you on day tours? When we were in several parts of Asia this was quite common. We would rent a driver/tour guide for the day. Is this common in Egypt and is it recommended? Thanks!! Also, is anyone else taking the Nile Safari on Oct. 29, would like to chat if you are!!
