Adventure Activities Cairo
Cairo city is the capital of Egypt and it is rightly designated so, for many reasons. For you as a tourist there are number of things to do in Cairo, it does not matter what kind of a person you are, you will have the best time of your life. It is so because there are a lot of activities in Cairo which will make you feel that it was one of the best decisions in your life, when you decided to visit this city. No matter what you are expecting of this city, it will never disappoint you and will give you something you love to do in one or the other way.
Here is a list of fun activities in Cairo which you can enjoy on your next trip.
The streets of Islamic Cairo is the place where you cannot get any help from amps in your hand and you will be very confused about where to go next and that is the most fun part about this place because you will have no idea where to go and in order to get away from the crowd you might end up finding something that you could not even imagine of getting in Egypt. These streets are completely insane but they are also worth the time and efforts as it is a great experience after all.
Climbing to the top of a mosque which is just beside the bab Zuwayla Minaret and from there you will get a bird’s eye view of the city of Cairo. The best time to climb up this mosque is just before the sunset so that you can watch how the city gets in the color of oranges as the sun goes down on this city.
The best stuff to do in Cairo is experiencing the underground passage right next to the hanging church. The underground passage leads to the maze of streets which creates the heart of Coptic cairo. It is the most famous sight in the city because it is build on the top of passage of a Roman fortress and people are very curious to know about the passage from the inside.
You must visit the Egyptian Museum even if you are not a museum person and the reason for doing so is that you can get into random stuff to do in Cairo and enter this museum. This museum is completely filled with priceless antiques belonging to the history of this country and this city which is very exciting to see and have experiences from such a close distance.
People who love adventure sports can go to the outskirts of this city and have a great time. There are dirt bikes, quad bikes, buggies and 4 wheel drive vehicles on which you can race and beat your rival’s time and track records. It is usually filled with rookies and lover of adventure sports but if you are lucky enough you might see some of the professionals practicing and trying skills at very high level of these outdoor activities.

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
