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 Saqqara (Step Pyramid of Djoser & Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids), Meidum Pyramid (in El Wasta) and Giza (Great Sphinx, Pyramids of Giza, &more). And it doesn't end there: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, don't miss a visit to Coptic Cairo, examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Muhammad Ali.
