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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Oum El Dounia Gallery. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza Plateau (in Giza). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, steep yourself in history at Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay, and stroll around Al-Azhar Park.
