The tour that provides the most extraordinary experience in Egypt includes the awe-inspiring Giza Pyramids and the captivating historical site of Saqqara.
When preparing for a day tour in Cairo, it's essential to dress comfortably and respect local customs and weather conditions. Here are some clothing and attire tips to consider:
Modesty: Egypt is a conservative country, and it's respectful to dress modestly, especially when visiting historical and religious sites. For both men and women, this means covering your shoulders, cleavage, and knees. Loose-fitting clothing is a good choice.
Light Layers: Cairo can be hot, especially in the summer months. Choose lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. Layering is a good idea, as it allows you to adjust your clothing based on the temperature.
Long Sleeves: Long-sleeved shirts or blouses can protect your arms from the sun and help maintain modesty. Consider packing a lightweight cardigan or shawl for additional coverage.
Pants or long skirts: Opt for pants or long skirts that cover your knees. These are comfortable and respectful choices, especially for women.
Sun Protection: Don't forget sun protection, including a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Cairo can be sunny, and sunburn can be uncomfortable.
Comfortable Footwear: Wear comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes or sandals with good support. You'll likely be doing a fair amount of walking, so comfort is essential.
Socks: If you plan to visit mosques or religious sites, you'll need to remove your shoes. Wearing socks can be more comfortable in these situations.
Respectful Attire for Mosques: If you plan to visit mosques, both men and women should have attire that covers their arms, legs, and heads. Women may be asked to wear a headscarf (provided at some mosques) and remove their shoes.
Swimwear: If your tour includes a visit to a pool, beach, or water-related activity, pack swimwear, but remember that wearing swimwear away from the water is generally not appropriate in public areas.
Small Bag: Bring a small bag or backpack to carry essentials like water, a camera, sunscreen, and your passport or ID. Make sure it's secure to guard against pickpocketing.
Respect for Local Culture: Be aware of local customs and sensitivities. Avoid clothing with offensive or political symbols.
Weather Considerations: Check the weather forecast for Cairo during your visit and dress accordingly. In cooler months, you may want a light jacket or sweater for the evenings.
In Cairo, there are lots of cool places to visit like Mosques, Palaces, Sabils (water fountains), and Khans/Markets. People from all over the world come to see the Pyramids and the Cairo Museum, but they shouldn't forget about other important places like Fatimid Cairo and Al Azhar University with its old Mosque. Cairo is like a really big history lesson and a living museum that you shouldn't miss out on.
