    Cairo Transportation

    Like with every other mode of transportation in Cairo - there really seem to be no rules. The lines on the road are decorations as are the lights, if they are working. The same is with my taxi ride. This may be the normal way it happens, or maybe it was a special case. I had missed my flight back to Canada after a series of unplanned events that...

    Since we were staying at the New 6th of October City which is located more then 65 kilometers away from Cairo International Airport in Heliopolis, the only mode of transport in going to the airport will be via Taxi or private van and tour buses (since we are on a group tour, tour buses ferried us to the airport) and public buses travel from the...

    Cairo Transportation

    Getting to the Giza Pyramids from Downtown Cairo can be expensive and time consuming. A taxi will cost you at the minimum 50 LE ($10) each way and takes about an hour to and from the Pyramids. The best option is to take the red line metro to the Giza Station stop for 1 LE each way (.20 cents) and then from Giza Station you can catch a cab to the...

    Cairo Transportation

    Well this was a part of our agenda that I was a little concerned about. I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Instead of flying to Aswan to catch our Nile Cruise we decided to try the train. The first thing I realized is we shouldn’t have come early The tiny waiting room is shabby crowded and hot. There are only a couple of chairs and no AC. The...

    Cairo Transportation

    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE IN CAIRO. It is an art unto itself! The roads are difficult to navigate and the driving is maniacle!!! There is a structure to the driving but I think you'd have to have been brought up with it to attempt it. Someone has added a great comment prior to mine somewhere. It states that these drivers have broken one of the laws...

    Cairo Transportation

    as the popular destinations are located far and wide away from each other, walking and taking the public bus or microbus is a way more expensive option than taking a package tour, also the lagnuage barrier is a problem, and the taxis, they are also more expensive to take along the different tourist attractions around Greater Cairo as the taxi...

  • Camel

    Cairo Transportation

    When we were at the Giza Pyramids our guide took a poll to see who wanted to go for a camel ride. We'd have to drive behind the pyramid to the desert where the camels were waiting for brave tourists. Well we all decided we would go, how often does one get the opportunity to ride a camel? We were told to pick the camel we wanted to ride on. I don't...
