Day 1: Cairo – the PyramidsThe Pyramids are what Egypt is so famous for. I have heard stories of pyramids since childhood, and to me it is one of the most intriguing places. Visit the last surviving Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Pyramid of Giza. Built as tombs for the mighty Pharaohs and guarded by the enigmatic Sphinx, Giza's pyramid complex has always has always spell bounded its visitors. If you want to inside the Great Pyramid, then visit early in the morning. In the afternoon, visit the Cairo Museum. In the evening, visit the labyrinth shopping souk of Khan el-Khalili. This is Cairo’s grand marketplace buzzing with people all through the day.
