Couple Traveller

Our journey through Cairo’s treasures on the “Cairo City Tour to Egyptian Museum & Citadel and Old Cairo” was a remarkable experience for us as a couple. The Egyptian Museum was a treasure trove of history, and our guide’s explanations made it all the more captivating. The Citadel’s grandeur and the breathtaking view from the top were mesmerizing. Old Cairo’s narrow lanes and ancient mosques felt like a step back in time. This tour allowed us to embrace the rich history and culture of Cairo in a single day. Highly recommended!
