We use a bus for some of the included activities but I like people to experience taxi and metro rides as well

Our hotel is situated in downtown Cairo so great for wandering out and shopping.  Cairo shoe shopping and clothes shopping is great, you can get some real bargains.
The Egyptian Museum is a 20 minute walk, so easy to do by yourselves.  I can arrange a guide if required or you can just get a ticket and browse in your own time.                                    

There is time for optional activities which we can arrange at extra cost including: 
Dance classes - we can see who is available at the time and schedule accordingly
Spa treatments in Zamalek for those who want to treat themselves.  Zamalek is a residential district with nice shops, cafes and restaurants.
Additional nights out to see dancers, experience Cairo nightlife - I can highly recommend the Fairmont on Thursday night to see Soraia Zaid.  A 5 star venue with great band et.  Fabulous singer beforehand, a whole evenings entertainment. Its a special dressy up night (drinks not included in price)
