More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours has been added to your itinerary. Let the collections at Musee de la Barque Solaire and The Coptic Museum capture your imagination. Get some historical perspective at Step Pyramid of Djoser and Tomb of Shah of Iran. Take a break from Cairo with a short trip to Pyramids of Dahshour in Giza, about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, browse the exhibits of Oum El Dounia Gallery, and view the masterpieces at Sondos Papyrus.

A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Horus at Edfu and Medinet Habu. Avenue of Sphinxes and Valley of the Artisans (Deir el-Medina) will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Luxor: Dendera Temple Complex (in Dendera) and Gibel Silsila (in Edfu). The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Tomb of Ramses VI, don't miss a visit to Deir el-Shelwit Temple, stroll the grounds of Valley of the Queens, and gain insight at ACE - Animal Care in Egypt.
