Excellent trip

We loved our trip to Cairo. We were picked up at time at our hotel. Started with the hanging church in Coptic area and mosque then museum in the morning. Then Pyramids and Sphinx. Our guide was so friendly and had a lot to tell us about the city and its history. we enjoyed our trip and would definitely recommend it.
