Customer Travel Tip: Haggle! Never accept the first price. Taxi's are excellent value. Nothing is free, even when someone claims to be helping you.

Liked: Almost everything!! There are too many things to mention, it's easier listing those things we didn't like!

Disliked: Very dirty and disorganised since the revolution. They clearly have bigger things on their mind, which is understandable, but lots of buildings and services seem to have got forgotten about.

Customer Travel Tip: Avoid Cairo, not worth the effort. Go to Luxor and take a cruise on the Nile and then go visit Dahab.

Liked: The Pyramids, Tutankhamen's mask, Khan el Khalili market

Disliked: Extremely dirty city. No one in Cairo understands the word cleanliness. The dust is just everywhere. Traffic is a nightmare. There are no traffic lights so it's a jungle on the roads. The noise is incredible. The word silence is anaethema to Egyptians. Dangerous place, was robbed by 3 policemen in my own apartment

Customer Travel Tip: Stick to an Egyptian friend to show you around. Thus, you will be able to get the cheapest prices on everything and not get robbed of by sellers in touristic places.

Liked: I liked the cultural richness of Cairo. The city offers a rare experience with its strong character. I loved every single piece of it, from walking the streets in the night to sightseeing in the day. The fact that streets are alive 24/7 is just mind blowing. You will never understand how great it is to find shops open anytime until you experience it.

Disliked: Weather and transportation. Two words describe the only bad things about Cairo. While visiting it in the winter would have been way more beneficial, the summer is quite hot and sometimes unbearable.
