We had a super quick stop over in Cairo on our way to Ethiopia from Tunisia. It was definitely a wake up from Tunisia! The city is so much larger and crazier!
Here is the tour guide that we used:
Nibal at EgyptGuest.com — she was recommended to us, and she was great! She set everything up for us – pick up from the airport (she gave us easy to understand instructions on how to get a entry stamp), a quick drive through the city to get to the pyramids to see them (we didn’t have time to actually enter the compound), a great meal of Kushari), a bit of shopping, and then back to the airport. An amazing few hours which required no stress on our end at all.
Let her know we recommended her (hopefully she remembers us!) — We went in 2014 after the Arab spring so it felt a bit tense. She was super cognizant of concerns and we felt very safe!
