About Cairo

A city upon the Nile that has been inspiring humanity and drawing visitors since the dawn of recorded history, Cairo's one-of-a-kind allure is as alive today as ever.

Cairo is a massive city with a long and well-preserved history of habitation that reaches back to the times of the Pharaohs, the Romans and the Greeks. The city almost resembles a pop-up book of architectural history with so many different period styles erected in a single space.

Awe-inspiring but also baffling, Cairo can challenge visitors. Noise and heavy traffic can be forces to contend with. First-time visitors uncomfortable with the local customs of bargaining and negotiable prices should make tour bookings and domestic travel arrangements prior to arrival, so that itineraries and costs are confirmed in writing.
