Staying overnight in Cairo will greatly increase the number of attractions you can take in. For example, on day two, you could visit the giant necropolis of Sakkara containing the tombs of Egypt’s early pharaohs and nobles as well as the famous Step Pyramid. There are many other pyramids nearby. Memphis, the administrative capital of Egypt in ancient times, is only a short drive away……see the massive recumbent statue of Ramesses the Great.
Reasonably-priced hotels are available in Cairo. One of our favourites is the President Hotel in leafy Zamalek…ideally placed for seeing Cairo without getting caught up in its renowned traffic!!
Our two-day Cairo Tour costs 150GBP per car and you should budget 100GBP per person for hotel and dinner, lunches, entrance fees etc. The two days, for a couple, including flights would cost around 500GBP.
As with all HTS private tours, we work out with you beforehand the sort of itinerary you would enjoy most and can then give you a more accurate budget for the total cost of a one or two day visit to Cairo
