Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Cairo – Egypt's chaotic capital. Your Lonely Planet Experience begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. Cairo is one of the great ancient cities and its history can be symbolised by two imposing landmarks – the Pyramids of Giza and the Mosque of Mohammed Ali. If you have time, why not jump on a quick felucca ride or head out to explore the markets. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle, the Christian Coptic sector is well worth a visit.

Worked with us and supplier, Intrepid, to coordinate our experience. Clear communication and good suggestions to maximize our costs. Excellent value for money. Other than optional trips and airport transfer, which were overpriced vs doing on own, were reasonable. Totally enjoyed local guide, Mohamed, who was our Leader!

       

Very responsive and timely action on our booking and follow up to questions.
