Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Only use a guide, NEVER do it on your own, as people will either be rude, harass and try to scam you and if they do neither it's because they want you to buy something. Just see the pyramids and escape!

Liked: It has an energy about it I guess (clutching at straws here)

Disliked: Pretty much everything. Dusty and dirty, rubbish everywhere, sick looking stray cats and dogs. Horrible to get around - traffic is a nightmare and public transport is nearly non existent and walking is difficult as you either have to walk in the road, across half-built pavements or simply compacted, decomposing garbage.
