Cairo, Egypt

— 8 nights

City of a Thousand Minarets

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Great Sphinx, Pyramids of Giza, &more), Meidum Pyramid (in El Wasta) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and step off the mainland to explore Zamalek (Gezira Island).
