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.

    Shubhankar's 7 days trip to Cairo

    First the good things: 1. Customized trip planning by Lalith - all questions answered, and offered many suggestions. Very helpful. 2. The Visa processing part was smooth 3. The trip guides/drivers were absolutely on time. I was floored by this - very very commendable 4. Guides were pretty know
    ledgeable and non-pushy 5. Well-behaved guides and drivers and the co-ordination was near perfect Things that need to change/improve: 1. The requirements for travel were either COVID-19 vaccination certificate or COVID-19- testing for non-vaccinated people. This IS NOT REQUIRED according to the VFS site and should not have been there on the list. This was a waste of money and added hassle. 2. TIPS: It was mentioned tips are mandatory and $5 per person/day was to be collected. But when we landed no one mentioned or collected it. When we left Cairo for other cities and the cruise - everyone asked for tips, which we paid. Found out the on-ground people had not communicated about it and the end vendor wasn't aware or wasn't receiving it. So we ended up paying more than what was necessary. My suggestion is to let customers know that tipping is a part of Egyptian tourism culture and what the normal/general tips are let them handle it so that at least the deserving people receive it. 3. The cabin for the cruise was a bit small for 3 people. I wish during planning I was offered a few choices about different sized rooms with each costing so that I could make an informed decision.

    Dasdeya's 7 days trip to Cairo

    We had a great time with our family in Egypt. Many thanks to Travel Traingle for their management. We had a smooth trip. We went with two senior members and one toddler. They made sure to execute the plans as per schedule. The agent from India, Aman was very polite and answered whenever we had any q
    uestion prior and in the middle of the trip. The agent from Egypt, Ali was polite and well mannered as well. At the day of Eid, when we were supposed to visit one place in Luxor in the evening, the guide was not available and we got to know that once we were ready and waiting for him. We contacted Aman since Ali was unavailable. Aman contacted and let us know about the plan being postponed to next day. We had a great trip next day and we covered all the places. I think, due to Eid, we had this minor issue. otherwise, everything went great! We would definitely recommend this travel planner for your next Egypt trip.

    Devendra's 11 days trip to Cairo

    Our overall tour was really good. The agency Travel Lykke in great detail explained the itinerary and were at hand to answer any questions about POC in Egypt, visa and other things to keep in mind while in Egypt. The local coordinator, Hossam was really kind & helpful. He even waited with us on stat
    ion for 4 hours for the train. Each guide in each city - Muhammad, Mona Lisa & Dua - were really knowledgeable as well as friendly. Travel Lykke recommended us a tour to the Baheriya Oasis which became the highlight of our trip. The White & black desert, camping under the stars, eating with the local Bedouins was simply mesmerising. The cons on this tour were primarily regrading the trains. We'd specifically & repeatedly asked to book trains that ensured we reached the other city between 10-10:30 am. It was so that, we could maximize our sightseeing before boarding the train & arrive at a decent time to check-in at the hotel. That wasn't followed. That was really unpleasant, as we'd to wait in the hotel lobby for long hours. Also, even after requesting beforehand in the train vegetarian food wasn't booked - one traveller was vegetarian. We weren't even told about that, otherwise we'd have made alternate arrangements. Proper communication about these things would have made the experience great

    Thanks to Travel Lykke team to make our travel to Egypt safe and a memorable experience. The team was quite supportive from the planning stage of the trip up until the end. However, there are a few gaps we found and some unpleasant experiences during the trip which should be improved upon for futur
    e travelers. Especially to countries like Egypt where communication is a big issue and safety is not always to be taken for granted. I can elaborate on this with the right contact person from Travel Lykke or Triangle Tours anytime

    We chose to travel with Travel Lykke for a very memorable Egypt & Jordan trip from 2nd-14th Dec. They did a superb job of helping us plan & were readily available with all needed support. We travelled privately as a family of 4 adults with individualised arrangements. I am happy with the smooth exp
    erience that saved us a lot of time, effort & energy in two new countries. We could spend time enjoying ourselves without have to worry about logistics at all. I recommend them whole heartedly.
