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.

    Jacob's 7 days trip to Cairo

    We were a group of 3 friends and we had planned Egypt during the pandemic. I have earlier booked a couple of trips with Travel Triangle and so it was a natural choice when it came to plan the Trip to Egypt. Soon I was put in touch with Mr Shashank from Lykke Travels. Mr Shashank was patient and unde
    rstanding right from the word go. Any and every apprehension we had regarding the Trip, budget, things to do, hotels, PCR testing etc etc was put to rest by his excellent awareness about Egypt. He was kind enough to incorporate the zillion changes we made to the itinerary. The flight as well as the transfer to Dahab hostel was smooth. Dahab Hostel was the perfect choice as it was centrally located and made our commute to various places much shorter. Fantastic place to stay, excellent reception staff but I am taking away one star coz of the cats..there are so many of them. Anyway next we headed to Hurghada where everything was just perfect. Mr Shashank was kind enough to put me in touch with the adventure sports operators and we had an absolute blast. The Dana beach resort was a fantastic choice. Then we headed back to Cairo and did the mandatory sight seeing . As we had our own cab and guide so we had flexible timing and thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience at Khan e Khalili. All and all it was a fantastic trip and looking back I realise it was a very wise decision to have let Mr Shashank handle the itinerary. Will remember this trip for a lifetime and looking forward to more trips with you. Cheers

    LYKKE organised our trip to Egypt last December, Shashank planned a fantastic and well organised trip. Right from taking care of our Visa formalities to booking the best hotels, making sure that our transit between various locations were smooth to guiding us about how to get the local experience.
    We literary did not have to look out for any details of the trip and everything was seamlessly planned by Shashank who also contiuously checked with us for any issues. Thanks LYKKE for making this trip a memorable experience for us

    Vaibhavi's 9 days trip to Cairo

    Trip destinations: Egypt, Dubai Holiday Aces was a good agency. Had a good trip in Egypt and Dubai. Esp in Egypt the guide (Mr. Tamer Akmal) was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great experience learning about Egyptian history with him. I personally recommend him for Egypt to
    ur. The planning from the end of holiday aces was good, but there is a room for improvement there. The destinations and recommendations were quite standard. I would recommend getting the itinerary finalized with them in advance to the T, since modifications in the itinerary were difficult and additions in the excursions was charged extra. eg. We wanted to view miracle garden and Global village in Dubai, but it could not be accommodated despite the agent assuring us that itinerary can be flexible. Also there is scope of improvement wrt promptness of communication by the team eg. during Visa process, driver not coming to pick us up at Sharjah airport etc. But overall, a good experience.

    Dhruv's 7 days trip to Cairo

    We had a very bad experience this time with travel triangle and travel agency (Travel Alpha). We did not get on-time support from travel triangle agent Sumit as he was ill when the chaos happened with the travel agency and his replacement was unable to understand the problems as he was unaware of pr
    evious history and the chats we had with Sumit and the travel agency. Literally we had to call every hour to get an update on our VISA processing and the hotel bookings/vouchers. This was a very mismanaged trip from the travel agency (travel alpha). I think these guys are newbies in this business so they don't have much experience how to deal with customers and handle their queries on time and provide travel details on time. Atleast we wont recommend the agency to any other friend of ours. Moreover due to this travel triangle impression on our minds has gone down drastically. The rating for the hotels was good because those were our suggestion, we literally had to fight with the agency to get our bookings done in those hotels although it was very well communicated to them where we are going to stay at the very beginning of the trip planning. Anyways, we will plan our next international trip on our own or go with other online platform.

    Ranadip's 7 days trip to Cairo

    Highly Recommended. They work hard to synchronise all transfers ,sight seeing arrangements and Hotel stay. Never broken communication link between Shashank in India and the representative Mr. Ahmed at Egypt. Always enquired our wellbeing through whatsapp/voice call. I would recommend all inclusive
    tours including entrance fees to monuments and three meals a day.Overall tour was professionally managed and we enjoyed thoroughly without any hitches. Being a senior citizen of 73 years old they have taken all care to avoid discomfort while at travel. We wish all the best and hope to associate ourselves with them for all our future tours.

    Sapna's 6 days trip to Cairo

    "I was so pleased with the trip. My travel guide Shashank Agarwal and Local tour leader(Mousa) were outstanding : knowledgeable, friendly, safety-conscious, and had great sense of humor. I will highly recommend TravelLyyk company to those who inquire as you exceeded all expectations. Communicatio
    ns: Very thorough. I stayed in constant communication. Information was all inclusive and helpful. Last minutes changes also accommodated in nice way. Guides: Quite enjoyable. Resourceful, knowledgeable, competent, funny and intuitive. Excellent service. Tour: I think I had an excellent sampling of the different habitats and the tour really was - delightfully - off the beaten path. I enjoyed each of the area I visited and was especially impressed by the visit to Red pyramids, White Desert and Hurgada. Excellent! The route and program gave me the right amount of free time as well as organized activities. Accomodations: Clean and comfortable. The meals were excellent everywhere I went. Accommodations far met my expectation. In all cases they were friendly staff, very good food, and well located. Transports: On time. The local tour leader was excellent, flexible, agreable, safe and pleasant. All internal transfers were pleasant and comfortable. The tour guide : Outstanding tour leader and guide! This is a combination of both his friendly, outgoing personality and his incredible knowledge of all aspects of Egypt: history, culture, food, places plus much skill with the scope, etc. Thank you for your service and I look forward to working with you again."

    Ananta's 7 days trip to Cairo

    Egypt was my dream destination since I was a kid. Pyramids, Sphinx and mummies always fascinated me. But a trip to Egypt was unlike my previous to any other destination because of so rich Egyptian history. So we picked Travel Triangle to arrange everything for us. The arrangement was good. All the
    transfers were very timely, drivers were nice. The guides for all the attractions were well informed and kept on guiding us on from where should we buy souvenirs. Also, all the days were well planned to not overexert except one day in Luxor (the last day of our trip). Everytime (pre-booking and during the trip) the agents involved were pro active in all the communication and were readily availabe. One feedback for improvement is that we have to remind the local guides about all the things promised in the itinerary instead it should be other way around. I am handing over the trip management to some agency because I intend to be careless and worryless during my vacation.
