Bespoke Holidays in Cairo

Of course, the major highlight in Cairo is the Pyramids, and rightly so since these mighty impressive structures are the only ancient wonder of the world still standing. Join an expert Egyptologist guide to head to Giza and admire the three 5,000 year-old Pyramids and Sphinx, which are as astonishing for their size and scale as much as for the ancient history which accompanies them.

Back in the city, wander along the hectic streets and head into the bazaars to discover a real melting pot of cultures, influences and religions. The architecture and churches in Coptic Cairo (which is part of the old town) are particularly beautiful and we recommend adding Babylon Fortress, the Coptic Museum, the Hanging Church and the Greek Church of St. George to your to-see list.

Another of the must-see sights in Cairo is The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, which houses the world’s greatest collection of Pharaonic treasure, including 12 rooms dedicated just to Tutankhamun. Due to open in 2020, the hotly anticipated Grand Egyptian Museum is set to be another major highlight, with a unique pyramid-inspired design and a size that will make it one of the biggest in the world.

For a break from the city’s madness, a picnic lunch and afternoon on a traditional wooden felucca boat is the perfect way to experience the city and the River Nile without the crowds.
