Tourist Places In Cairo
If you are planning to visit Cairo in your next vacations then this article will help you to get some idea about best places to visit in Cairo. So that you have take an informed decision while planning your trips and tours.
Here are some of the best Cairo attractions and places to visit
Cairo sightseeing tours usually include the Pyramids of Giza. These three pyramids are the best attraction that this city has. The tallest one is called the Pyramid of Giza, and the other two are called the pyramid of Khufu and the pyramid of Cheops. These three pyramids are one of the first must visit spots when you are making the list of thing where to go in Cairo because they are the most preferred destination for almost every tourist.
The second best thing that is on the list of Cairo tourist attractions is The Egyptian Museum. With some exciting collection of antiquities it is one of the best museums in the world. You will need at least five to six day if you want to understand every artifact that is displayed in this museum. But you should not miss out on Tutankhamun Galleries, the treasures displayed there were found in the tomb of Tutankhamun and are distributed in different rooms.
Then there is Khan el-Khalili which is one of the best places for shopping in this world and all of the Egypt. It is so because it has long streets filled with tourists out for shopping and being a historic place which later turned into the shopping areas gives it a magnetic effect due to which people cannot resist visiting this place at least once while they are checking the list of things to visit Cairo.
If you want to explore the architectural mosques, then Sultan Hassan Mosque is the best one to begin with. It is because this mosque is one of the best work of Mamluk architecture in the world and people from different countries visit this city just to see what it look like when they experience it in person. As it was built in 1356 – 1363 for the Sultan Hassan el-Nashar, it has great historic value as well for the country and is a must while you are in sightseeing tours in Cairo Egypt.
Now if you want to sit and relax after wandering around in the city, you should visit Al-Azhar Park. This part is built over a rubbish dump and is the green lungs of the old district. It provides sense of peace and chaos free movement in the chaotic streets of Cairo. It is slightly above from the ground level which means that you can experience some great views of the city, and do not miss the sunset from this park because this park is probably the best place to see the sun set and relax in all of the Egypt. There are some restaurants near this park so that you can grab something to eat while you enjoy the greenery of this park.

Vaibhavi's 9 days trip to CairoTrip 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.
Amit's 7 days trip to CairoVery well organised egypt tour by lykke travel .Excellent services by travel agent.
Dhruv's 7 days trip to CairoWe 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.
Somaiyapranav's 9 days trip to CairoThe trip was very well planned the only thing didn't like was the high tips that were being charged every day by the managers and guides Cruise was the best part
Ranadip's 7 days trip to CairoHighly 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 CairoEgypt 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.
Prathima's 7 days trip to CairoOne of the best tour we ever had , everything was very well organized and the tour agents were really exceptional ,always looking out for our comfort . Will definitely go again
Soumyasurabhi's 7 days trip to CairoTrip was decent with major destinations covered as per schedule. Local travel agents were very professional.

Pyramids visit, Nile Cruise
