PYRAMIDS OF GIZA

"The experience of visiting the Pyramids of Giza will never get old. I have lost count of how many times that I have actually been, but I always leave having seen + experienced something new. I  highly recommend exploring  through the desert plateau where temple ruins, tombs, + smaller satellite pyramids can be seen."

KHAN EL KHALILI

"Khan El Khalili is a famous bazaar located in the historic centre of Cairo. One of my favourite places to regularly visit as the atmosphere + environment is truly one of a kind. As you walk through the bazaar + small shops you are surrounded by history + architecture at every turn."

AIN SOKHNA

"Ain Sokhna is a town located on the western shore  of the Red Sea's Gulf of Suez. A very convenient location to get away for the weekend as it is just under a two-hour drive from Cairo. The still + shallow waters are breathtaking as you can easily swim a few hundred metres into the Red Sea."
