Cultural Cairo

These trips are led by Nibal Gouda - they are not based round Belly Dance - but of much more general interest.

You can pick from our range of cultural and sightseeing activities, add variations and create your own itinerary.

To run a trip with Nibal as guide for the week, we need 10 people. If there is a smaller group of you, we can advertise for more people to join your trip. Or you may opt to have us arrange your accommodation, organised trips for 2 or 3 days then the rest of the time to do your own thing.

Any variation is possible.
