 Listed below are a variety of excursions around Cairo and beyond. These tours have been implemented and recommended by many travellers, as well as travel experts. Most of these tours are destined for sites located within or nearby Cairo and can, therefore, be toured in one day. To read more about each trip, simply click on it.

Our range of tours in Cairo is unlimited. Here are some more suggestions:
  • Sound and Light Show at the Pyramids of Giza: as night falls, the magnificent Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx are floodlit, and the distant past unfolds before you as the Sphinx tells their story (1hr.).
  • Drive through Cairo:Cairo streets are like an open history book, no other city in the world has much history as Cairo. Wherever you go there's always something to see and a story to tell (half/day tour).
  • The Pharaonic Village: take a step back in time. Just a few miles from the centre of Cairo, a time machine waiting to take you on a journey to the days of the Pharaohs, a time brought to life by an incredible group of actors and actresses and reproductions of ancient buildings, clothing and daily life (half/day tour, approx.4 hrs.).


  • Camel/Horse ride around the Pyramids of Giza:A fun trip around the sand dunes south of the pyramids either on horseback or camels. This can be piggy-backed onto the day tour at the pyramids if energy levels allow, or can be done on a separate morning or afternoon. Setting off on camels at dawn, watching the sun rise over the dessert and the pyramids come into view out of the morning haze. However, if you would like a full desert experience, camping over night in the desert will truly be an unforgettable experience. If you are not a morning person, camping for the sun set will be almost the same. Lunch or dinner picnics are available as well.
  • Folk Shows: such as Sufi dancing, more commonly known in the west as the whirling dervishes, can be watched at the Ghouri Caravansary (evening 2-3 hrs.).
  • Alazhar Park: a green hilly site with a wonderful view of the most significant historic districts of Cairo. The park is home to the newly discovered Ayyubid wall, constructed by Saladin more than 800 years ago. A variety of unique coffee shops and restaurants are available (2-3 hrs.).

 

  • Felucca Ride: Felucca is the Egyptian traditional sail boat, seen all along the Nile, perfect for a sunset cruise (2-3 hrs.).


 

 
  • Fagnoon Centre: fun and learning for Kids. One of the rare places in Cairo where both parents and children can take a break and spend a few unforgettable hours. The word “Fagnoon” itself is a combination of two interesting Arabic words Fann (art) and Gonoon (wild). It is a place for families to play, run, dance, paint, draw, as well as trying out a bouquet of crafts including pottery, carpentry, agriculture, baking, jewellery making, iron smithy, and much more. If you have kids, make sure you take them there (2-3 hrs.).

 

  • Cairo's Camel Market: where camels driven across the shifting sands from Libya, Sudan, Somalia are sold every day. This is definitely not a place for the animal lover! (half/day tour, starts early in the morning).

 

  • Nile Delta Village: an off-the-beaten-track trip visiting an Egyptian village within the Nile Delta. Strolling through famous Egyptian cotton fields, and dining with an Egyptian farming family.
