Cairo, Egypt

City of a Thousand Minarets

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
On the 17th (Thu), explore the activities along Nile River, then delve into the distant past at Pyramids of Giza, and then stroll around Al-Azhar Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and then take an exotic tour of a safari tour.
