Our family of five 3 teenagers aged 14, 15 and 17 years old had the opportunity to explore Cairo for 7 hours on a recent layover. Of course, I had a ridiculously long list of landmarks, historical monuments, and museums that I wanted to visit. I realistically calculated that we needed days to really allow us to see and experience most of them. I had to decide whether to wait and book a return trip to Cairo, or bite the bullet and see what we could see within the timeframe. Ultimately, I bit the bullet and booked a private Cairo layover tour.
Cairo Layover Tour: Was It Worth It? - Go Far Grow Close
We are a couple from Switzerland wanting to travel to Egypt for 10 days. Is it easy to organise tour guides etc from cairo, luxor, aswan etc or should we pre-organise with a travel agency before we go given that we only have 10 days in Egypt. Furthermore, we would like to know the approximate difference in price between organising the trip ourselves and pre-organising by a travel agency. That will depend on the individual tastes it is difficult to advise, some people loathe escorted tours and prefer the private tours. The escorted tours are good for a first trip because you get a good overview of the Country and you get a "feel" for the place. Plus all of the hassles of transfers, entrance fees,etc are taken care of. On the downside, Egypt is a developing country and you will receive a fair amount of "hassle" from vendors, some people find this intimidating, being part of a large group reduces the amount of hassle.

Life in Cairo is much the same as it is in any other city of the world. People get up in the morning, go to school or work, have meals with their family, spend time with their friends, and go to the supermarket, much the same as your family does. Today, most Cairenes live in Western style apartment buildings.
