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.
Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more) and Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, and explore the ancient world of Giza Plateau.
