Cairo, is the administrative capital of Egypt and is home to the Great Pyramids of Giza, which lie on the edge of the city. A city buzzing with life 24 hours a day, with honking horns, children playing in the streets and merchants selling their wares, is also host to ancient temples, tombs, Christian churches, magnificent Muslim monuments and the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities.

Cairo tours offer an incredible selection of shopping, leisure and nightlife activities. Shopaholics will be in heaven here with the famous Khan el-Khalili bazaar, largely unchanged since the 14th century, selling spices, perfumes, gold, silver, carpets, brass and copperware, leatherwork, glass, ceramics and mashrabiya.  Alternatively, try some of the famous street markets such as Wekala al-Balaq for fabrics including Egyptian cotton or the Tentmakers Bazaar for appliqué-work, or Mohammed Ali Street for musical instruments and, although you probably won't want to buy one, the Camel Market makes a fascinating trip. This is, and has been for over a thousand years, truly a shopper's paradise.

Explore Egypt's capital city with one of our tailor-made Cairo holidays.

Guest Testimonial

We are most grateful for the efforts you (Sam Browning) have made on our behalf to make up for the cancellation of the Sun Boat III trip. It is when things go wrong that companies demonstrate whether they just talk about good customer service, or mean it. You obviously mean it and we fully intend to travel with Abercrombie and Kent again.
