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.
Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours has been added to your itinerary. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Musee de la Barque Solaire and Safaris. Visit Step Pyramid of Djoser and Tomb of Shah of Iran for their historical value. Go for a jaunt from Cairo to Giza to see Pyramids of Dahshour about 1h 5 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, view the masterpieces at Oum El Dounia Gallery, admire the masterpieces at The Coptic Museum, and browse the exhibits of Sondos Papyrus.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Cairo trip planner.

A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
Get some historical perspective at Temple of Horus and Dendera Temple Complex. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Medinet Habu and Tomb of Ramses VI. Step out of Luxor to go to Edfu and see Gibel Silsila, which is approximately 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Avenue of Sphinxes, make a trip to Deir el-Shelwit Temple, explore the ancient world of Valley of the Nobles, and get advice or help at ACE - Animal Care in Egypt.
