About Cairo Tourism

The short shoulder seasons from March to April and then from October to November are ideally the best time to visit Cairo. If you are looking for the peak tourist season, then it is the winter. Egypt, being a desert country located too near to the equator, has unbelievably hot weather during the season of summer. However, it is comparatively cooler than its southern neighbours Luxor or Aswan, but it is still hot enough to have a comfortable tour in the sands.

March - April:

This is the best time of the year to visit Cairo. Just after the swarm of tourists from the winter season leaves and the rates plummet quickly, there is a cheaper vacation awaiting. The  temperatures range from 22°C to 34°C on an average. So, if you want a tour of Cairo under blue skies and pleasant weather which is also light on your pockets, this time is perfect.

May - September:

From May to September, Cairo experiences its long and hot summer. Chances are, you will be coming from a place which is comparatively cooler than Egypt in the summer. So, it is not a very good idea to spend the already hot summer in a city known for desert. The temperature does not sound too high. It stays around 30°-35°C on an average. But given that the prime attractions around Cairo, like the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx or activities like camel riding or quad biking are located in the desert, it will feel a lot hotter than what the mercury says.

October - November:

Just before the peak season starts, October to November acts as a good shoulder time for a visit, just like March and April. November is the best time to visit Cairo, Egypt if you are looking for the last of low rates and a lukewarm type of weather. Temperature stays around 17°C-20°C, which is very comfortable for all the outdoor activities.

December - February:

December to February is the prime-time for Cairo tourism. The cold weather paired with refreshing breezes makes it an experience worth cherishing. Day-time temperature rests in 15°-18°C, but at night it can plummet further. Sand cools as fast as it heats. So, you can expect Cairo to be quite cold after nightfall.

      Very well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise

      Devaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!

      We just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
