Discover Cairo, Egypt!


From the amazing Sphinx & Pyramids to the wonderful treasures of Tutankhamen's tomb, Cairo is a place of exotic fascination.

As one of the largest urban areas in the world, Cairo has been attracting visitors for over one thousand years. Today, this somewhat crowded, vibrant, and majestic city, provides the opportunity for visitors to let go and immerse themselves in the culture - endless merchants selling their wares, 'god willing,' honking horns, and the hauntingly beautiful sound of the five-times-daily minaret prayer calls.



Cairo offers its visitors an endless array of choices: art galleries, magnificent ancient temples & tombs, mosques, Great Pyramids of Giza, churches, bazaars, and a glimpse into the past at museums like the Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

Meals are inexpensive and plentiful; rooms can be had for every budget; and now, flying to Cairo is even easier with British Midland Airways (BMI) and their connecting flights through London Heathrow from Boston, Washington Dulles, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

As visiting Cairo can be somewhat overwhelming, it's advisable for first time visitors to arrange tours to make the most of their time in the City Victorious. Must-see sightseeing in Cairo should include:

  • Great Pyramids of Giza
  • Memphis & Sakara
  • Khan el Khalili Bazaar
  • The Citadel
  • Egyptian Antiquities Museum
  • Alabaster Mosque of Mohamed Ali
  • Coptic Cairo: Ben Ezra Synagogue & Hanging Church
  • taking a falucca (sailboat) ride on the ancient Nile River
