Best Time To Visit Cairo

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

The short shoulder seasons from March to April and then from October to November is 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, summers here are unbelievably hot. It is comparatively cooler than its southern neighbors Luxor or Aswan, but it is still hot enough to have a comfortable tour in the sands.

Cairo in March-April (22°C to 34°C)

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 plummets quickly, making way for a cheaper vacation. 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.

Cairo in May- September (30°C-35°C)

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. 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.

Cairo in October-November (17°C-20°C)

Just before the peak season starts, October-November acts as a good shoulder time for a visit, just like March-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.

Cairo in December-February (15°C-18°C)

December to February is the prime-time for Cairo tourism. The cold weather paired with refreshing breezes makes it an experience worth cherishing. Sand cools as fast as it heats. So you can expect Cairo to be quite cold after nightfall.

Festivals Celebrated in Cairo

Ramadan: Ramadan is the most important festival celebrated by Muslims all over the country. Ramadan is an immensely popular Cairo festival wherein the cities are lit up and markets become lively. Muslims celebrate this festival with great zest and zeal and fast till sunset. The festival is celebrated during the holy month of Ramadan which usually falls in May and June.

Sphinx Festival: This is one of the most popular festivals in Egypt which is celebrated for 5 days. During this festival, people are educated and enriched with the ancient heritage and rich history of Egypt. Various activities like dance, educational workshops, and music shows take place during this festival.

Coptic Christmas: Coptic Christmas is not only celebrated by Christians but almost all the people in Egypt especially the ones residing in Cairo and Coptic regions of Egypt. This festival is celebrated every year on the 7th of January and the preparation start one week before. On this day, people meet each other and have feasting of meat soup, garlic, and rice.

Climate in Cairo

Summer Season in Cairo

The only two good things about visiting Cairo in summer are the shorter queues at attractions and low rates of airfare and hotel. Because of the high temperature, which feels even higher out in the open desert than the city, tourism is at its lowest during summer. But if you can handle the heat and are looking for budget vacation to the beautiful Egyptian capital, then summer could just be the best time to visit Cairo for you.

Monsoon Season in Cairo

Cairo does not get much of rain, which is self-explanatory given it is a desert country mostly. The summer months, unlike most places in northern hemisphere, get absolutely zero precipitation. There is some scattered rainfall from November to March, but it is not enough to call it a monsoon.

Winter Season in Cairo

Winters in Cairo are crowded as anything. The weather during winters is the most pleasant one, which draws tourists from around the world to the city. If you want to plan your trip during the winter season, the weather is certainly a pro, but the cons are the crowds and the high rates of fares, as well as their limited availability. It would be wise to book months ahead of the vacation.

    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 tour. 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.

    Bengaluru

    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 previous 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. Communications: 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.
