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.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Wed): examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, explore the ancient world of Pyramids of Giza, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary). On the 11th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, then contemplate the long history of Great Sphinx, and then look for gifts at Fair Trade Egypt.

Hurghada

Originally a small fishing town on the Red Sea coast, Hurghada developed into Egypt's premier beach destination thanks to its year-round sunny weather and world-class dive sites.
Kids will enjoy Na'ama Bay and Makadi Water World. Explore Hurghada's surroundings by going to Sharm El Sheikh (Scuba & Snorkeling & The Heavenly Cathedral). Spend the 14th (Sun) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. There's still lots to do: glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
