Tours to Cairo

The capital of the country, where Russians fly on vacation almost more often than to domestic resorts, is called the city of hundreds of mosques. Even the coat of arms of Cairo depicts the delicate outlines of high minarets on a foundation of elegant Arabic script. For an ordinary spa traveler, tours to Cairo are often limited only to inspecting the pyramids of Giza, but in the Egyptian capital itself there are many places that are quite worthy of a full-fledged detailed excursion.

Briefly about the important

  • Cairo is a huge metropolis with almost ten million people, according to statistics. Old buildings, narrow streets, not very sociable local population, who do not speak foreign languages ​​for the most part, are important reasons to closely follow the guide and try to keep up with the group. An inexperienced traveler shouldn't get lost in the labyrinths of the Cairo medina.
  • The hot summer in Cairo is not the best time to visit. The heat looks truly incinerating: the proximity of the Sahara does not allow the thermometer to drop below +35. The optimal season for comfortable tours to Cairo is the end of winter and the first half of spring. However, at night it can be quite cool, and therefore a couple of warm things in a suitcase will not be superfluous..
  • The easiest way to get around the city is on the Cairo metro. So it will be possible to avoid traffic jams and the consequences of not too correct driving style of local residents. The metro of the capital of Egypt is the very first to open in Africa and the Middle East.
  • When choosing a restaurant for lunch, it is important to pay attention to its sanitary condition. It is worth refraining from ice in drinks in any case, but hot dishes can be quite safely ordered even from street vendors.
  • When visiting mosques, it is important to observe the traditions - to take off your shoes and not to allow too open areas of the body. All mosques in Cairo are operational, and therefore they should be considered not as museums, but as objects for the administration of religious worship..

Legends of the ancient world

Not only the opportunity to touch the gray pyramids of Giza warms the soul of a traveler going on a tour to Cairo. He also dreams of visiting the Egyptian Museum of the capital, where 120 thousand rarities are carefully kept, telling about the history of the ancient world in general, and about its Egyptian segment in particular. The museum was opened at the very beginning of the twentieth century with the aim of preserving priceless finds from archaeological sites. Among the most expensive exhibits are the mummies of the pharaohs and objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun.
