      Visit to Al-Qarafa and Pyramids

      Cairo Jun 21, 2014 at 3:03 PM

      Hi,
      I will be spending a month in Cairo starting from the beginning of July. I will be there for a volunteering experience, but I am planning to make the most of my spare time from work. In particular, I would like to visit the Pyramids, Al-Qarafa and the other main attractions. As I am an Italian 21 year old girl travelling on my own, I would like to ask you to kindly recommend some reliable guides (possibly not too expensive). Also, if any other lone travellers are reading this, we could meet and go there as a group, since I've been told that although sites like al-Qarafa are fascinating, they are not exactly the best places to visit on one's own.
      Thank you very much in advance!

    • Safe Travel

      Cairo Jun 21, 2014 at 11:39 AM

      I am planning to come through Cairo for a few days with a girl friend. We are two US women and are wondering what the political situation is right now in Cairo and if travel is safe. I tend to feel that almost every place I have traveled to that "someone" said may be unsafe - upon arrival, I felt safe and sound and quite enjoyed myself. Any advice, pearls of wisdom would be welcomed.

      Hi, I will be travelling to North America and am planning to take a 3 day stopover at Cairo during 15th to 18th June. Is it safe to travel at that time since I have no idea about the events (political and others) occurring then. Can Al-sisi getting elected trigger a face off between him and Muslim Brotherhood (since he has vowed to finish MB)?

    • Is it safe to visit Cairo?

      Hi, we are planning a trip in August and have a stop-over at Cairo for 13 hours (12:30 pm - 2 am) and 17 hours (6 am - 8:45pm) both ways. I was thinking about doing the Museum on one day and the Pyramids / Sphinx on the other. Could you please tell me if it is safe to travel outside to the city? I read an article which said that the Egyptian government is wooing tourists to visit places like Luxor and Aswan, but are not promoting Cairo. Also would you advice that we do both on the same day?

    • One big day in Cairo.

      Cairo Mar 20, 2014 at 2:12 AM

      I would like to arrive in Cairo at 7am, visit the pyramids, then return to the airport for a flight leaving at 11pm. This would be on Wednesday, April 9th. I know traffic will be bad from the airport to the pyramids. Do you think it will be enough time? Would it be safe? Should I find a taxi to take me to the pyramids or should I set up a guide in advance to meet me at the airport?
      Thank you so much for your help.

    • 18 year old in Cairo

      Cairo Mar 17, 2014 at 12:33 PM

      I am thinking of taking a week's work placement in Cairo this coming October and (although I am 17 now) will just be 18 by the time of the trip. I am British and have not travelled there before. I will stay with an employee (a lawyer), whom I have not met before, at a reputable energy firm via a connection from my father's work. My father is of asian descent and so is not as worried as my mother, who thinks it would be too dangerous for a white male of my age given the current situation in Egypt and Cairo especially. Is she right? Or will I be okay if I stay close to my host?

      Hi, I am a 19 year old Canadian girl wanting to go to Cairo at the end of May for 2 weeks. I would fly there alone but my male Egyptian friend (who I trust a lot) would pick me up at the airport and be with me for the rest of the trip. Will I be safe given the current situation in Egypt? Is the harassment towards women as bad as the media makes it seem?
      Also, would jeans and a tshirt be appropriate dress code when in public?

    • Cairo tourism : safety for women

      Cairo Feb 16, 2014 at 9:22 AM

      Hello, next march, I have the plan to visit Cairo (inshallah) with my sister, so I would like to ask the locals, if it's a safe place to be for young women travelling by themselves? Being maghrebian, I know that in some maghrebian countries, women ("foreigners" mainly) going out alone are usually harassed by men...So I would like to ask if it's also the case for Cairo. I'm not talking about exceptions but more like if it happens n a regular basis. I am sorry if It might sound very stereotypical for some but that's the reason why I am asking.

      Also do you know if all the tourists attractions are open in Cairo besides the political tension? Such as Giza Pyramids, etc

      Easy Question - visit to Cairo

      Cairo Feb 8, 2014 at 4:20 AM

      Initially I wanted to visit many places in Egypt (Luxor etc.), but due to various reasons want to restrict travel to Cairo. If I have 3 full days what should be my itinerary. I will visit Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Nile river and one shopping area to get a view of locals - want to ask a question to get more tips. I am planning to go in May this year and security advise in government websites are still not what I want to see. Locals can advise me if being within Cairo is 100% safe. I will visit with my wife and 2 daughters of 5 and 8 years.

    • Safe to visit Cairo?

      Cairo Jan 15, 2014 at 4:03 AM

      We have a holiday booked for April, one week in Cairo to visit in/around the sites.

      We have paid a huge portion of the total holiday cost, and it looks unlikely that we can get any of it back unless the UK Government declares that it is unsafe to go.

      Will we be safe travelling (I appreciate no-one knows what will be happening in April, but appreciate any comments from people who have been very recently) or should we cut our losses and lose our money?

      If we do go, any advice on how to stay as safe as possible also greatly received.

      Thanks

      Laura
