Cairo

— 3 nights

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.
You've now added Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours to your itinerary. Take a break from Cairo with a short trip to Great Sphinx in Giza, about 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, and contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Cairo fast, fun, and easy.
