Superb experience! Or how to discover the essentials of Cairo in two days ... Jasmin, French-speaking, was an excellent guide to make us discover on a 1st day the Egypt of the Pharaohs: Memphis, Saqqara, the Valley of the Kings, Keops ... all this with a high level of historical knowledge, great precision, attention. The 2nd day we dedicated it to Cairo with the Citadel of Salaheddine, the Mosque of Mohamed Ali, obviously the Egyptian Museum to finish by the souks. If between the two you add a dinner cruise on the Nile, which also offers a quality show, you will have very quickly covered all that this city and its region can offer. Another special mention to our very professional guide Jasmin and to Karim, a punctual, careful, attentive and pleasant driver.
