We just wrapped up our cairo itinerary 5 days, and I can’t say enough about how amazing this trip was. Cairo is a treasure trove of history and culture, and this itinerary did justice to it all. Our guide, Ahmed, was fantastic – her passion for Egypt’s history was infectious. The visit to the Great Pyramid was a dream come true, and the sunset camel ride was a magical experience. The itinerary was well thought out, covering all the major attractions and even some hidden gems. This trip left our family with memories to last a lifetime.
