    What to Expect
    Your expert local guide will meet you for this downtown Cairo half-day tour with Egyptian dinner in the center of the city and drive you to Zemalek Island, where you’ll spend the late afternoon exploring the best of this scenic city.

    Journey into the historical backstreets and bustling boulevards as you follow your guide on this informative walking tour. Wander through the Attabah district and stroll past the Old Operate Square as you listen to your guide share insider info on Cairo.

    Cross the Nile River, where scenic views lead to the site of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution in Liberation Square (Midan Tahrir). Stationed among 19 and 20th century buildings, this historical site proved the birthplace of freedom in recent times. Your guide will point out local graffiti and explain its significance. Take in street theater as you wander through this popular spot for locals and foreigners to gather.

    At the end of your tour, make your way to a local Egyptian restaurant, where you’ll enjoy traditional dishes like koshari (rice, lentils, chili sauce and onions) or falafel. Your friendly guide will return you with a full belly to your original starting point where you’ll depart with a deeper understanding of the culture, history and city sites that make Cairo a destination for travelers.
