    Cairo Off The Beaten Path

    My tour group and I were on our way to see the church of Saint Samaan but in order to do that you have to go through Garbage City . BEWARE If you have a sensitive olfactory nerve (that is strong smells bother you) please bring a mask! In 1969 the governor of Cairo decreed that all trash collectors, Zabbaleen, would move to the garbage dump that...

    Cairo Off The Beaten Path

    The most amazing pyramid views and experience can be had whilst either riding a horse or camel through the desert or having drinks or dinner on the best terrace in Giza. It wasn't until I'd lived in Cairo for almost 2 years that I discovered FB Stables - now nobody who comes to visit me misses out and all say it's the highlight of their trip....

    If you're lucky enough to avoid all the tourist package tours and take your time walking around in this big city its a good idea to stay close to the Nile . You just have to get used to the crazy traffic first , believe me you will get used to it... so walk across El tahrir bridge and watch the cruise boats and other river traffic passing by or...

  • Khan el Khalili

    Cairo Off The Beaten Path

    As there are thousands of shops/stalls in the Khan you will never be at a loss for places to stop, people to watch, items to browse and shop for. Go to the Khan if you are pressed for time(in my opinion)- it is such an amazing place/experience, you don't want to miss it. The Museum is absolutely worth a visit but given the choice of one or the...
