The bride and bridegroom will be met by the coordinator to arrange everything for the pharaonic celebration. Then you will be transferred by luxurious coach before sunset. Upon arrival you are going to join the welcome Zaffa then the pharaonic celebration at the pharaonic village (procession that will resemble an Arabian / Egyptian wedding party). Back to your hotel and overnight in Cairo.
The whole tour will be via a boat in the Nile watching the traditional Egyptian style in daily life and enjoying your lunch there
The tour will begin at 11:00 am and will finish at about 6:00 pm with the sunset

Hi there,

Congratulations on your wedding and my best wishes for a happy life ever after. Cairo is a good choice for honey-mooners specially if you are used to big cities. Apart from the Pyramids and the Egyptian museum, there are many other places you can do. Here are some of the places you can see during your five-day stay :

- El-Moezz street in Old Cairo where you see the most beautiful medieval structures in Cairo such as mosques, medieval religious schools and medieval hospitals. You can also combine the amazing bazaar Khan el-Khalili.

- You can also visit the Medieval Castle of Saladin and see most of Cairo from there as this fortress is about 500 meters above sea level. On the same day you can have lunch and go for a nice gentle stroll in Al-Azhar Park.

- You have to see Coptic, Islamic and Jewish Cairo on another day. This is an excellent opportunity to see the three religions in one single place. On the same day you can take a sailing boat downtown Cairo and see the beautiful Nile river.

- Do something different, hopefully modern and sophisticated. Head for the HUGE mall "City Stars" on the outskirts of Cairo and spend a few hours doing a bit of shopping, drinking and eating.

- Visit the Cairo Tower which is more than 180 meters high. The view at the top is absolutely gorgeous.

- You have to visit the beautiful suburbs of Heliopolis and Maadi specially if there is not too much traffic.

- Do the Cairo Opera House and the Pharaonic Village.

- You have to make sure you try the local food. There are quite a few nice restaurants in Cairo where you have mouth-watering food.
