City of a Thousand Minarets

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours has been added to your itinerary. Kids will appreciate attractions like The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Great Sphinx. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Saqqara (Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids & Step Pyramid of Djoser) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Giza Plateau). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, partake in some friendly competition at Escapers, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, and admire the masterpieces at The Coptic Museum.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Cairo planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Cairo International Airport. In June in Cairo, expect temperatures between 94°F during the day and 73°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Wed) to allow time for travel to Luxor.

A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Thu): get answers to all your questions at ACE - Animal Care in Egypt, then explore the ancient world of Temple of Karnak, and then get to know the fascinating history of Avenue of Sphinxes. Here are some ideas for day two: delve into the distant past at Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, appreciate the history behind Colossi of Memnon, and then don't miss a visit to Deir el-Shelwit Temple.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Luxor trip planner.

Fly from Cairo to Luxor in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. When traveling from Cairo in June, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Luxor: temperatures range from 107°F by day to 78°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 19th (Sat) to allow time for travel back home.
