Tourism in Egypt is down in recent years, but with a focus on guest safety and hospitality, numbers are back on the rise. The Great Pyramids, last remaining of the original Seven Wonders of the World, is a bucket list item that will not disappoint. With museums, archeological sites, markets, and so much more, the Cairo area has more history than you could possible cram into a single trip - but you should try!
