This capital city can sometimes be hard to understand and difficult to find your way around, but well worth the effort. It is a vast city, and home to millions of Egyptians living on the banks of the Nile river, with breathtaking views of the Great Pyramids of Giza. Cairo is home to some of the worlds’ most famous sights, including the statue of the Sphinx and Egyptian Museum, housing the treasures of Tutankhamen. It is a city of extremes; Ancient Mosques stand side by side with modern shopping malls and traditional Egyptian cuisine competes with fast food chains. One thing you can be sure of is a warm and friendly greeting waiting for you around every corner. Egypt, the Jewel of the Nile and Cairo in its entire splendor never ceases to delight, amazing and adorn its visitors. At Discovery Tours Egypt we are delighted to offer a fantastic selection of excursions in and around Cairo.
