One day in Cairo may not be enough to experience everything in Cairo, but it is more than enough to learn about the popular attractions in Cairo such as the Egyptian Museum. You can find a lot of attractions if you have a well-thought-out itinerary and the desire to explore.
You can certainly enjoy Cairo day tours on your own, but having a tour guide around will be more beneficial because they can teach you about the background information and history of each Cairo attraction. Whatever mode of transportation you pick when visiting Cairo, be ready for crowds. Taxis and metro tickets are reasonably priced, as are both public and private tour buses.

Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.
I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh
