Customised Cairo

Ideal for a group of friends, a teacher wanting to take her class or a troup wanting to travel together.

Customised trips can be tailored to include everything you want from a week in Cairo.

You may want your trip to be more about sightseeing and costume shopping with a couple of shows .... or you may want it to be lots of late nights with a whole range of dance shows ... and never see a Pyramid. The choice is yours.

Included on all courses

6 nights B&B in shared room

Local Experiences

Shoes and Kosherie - On the orientation, I show folks where the shops are so they can go back at any time. There is an incredible range of shoes - unusual designs, colours etc - all reasonably priced. A shoe fetishists paradise! At some point through the week, we will try the local sugar cane juice, 'Asab' - and have the experience of travelling on the metro.

Orientation and lunch 
Kay takes the group on an orientation of the area - walking around the streets, pointing out the local pharmacy, off licence, good take-away food stalls, where to buy water etc. If anyone needs to change money, there is an exchange just nearby.

Lunch is normally in a local Egyptian restaurant, Felfella. The food is delicious and it is a good place to know about - so you can go back!

A day at the Khan el Khalili
Cairos biggest market - a draw to both Egyptians and foreigners alike. You can find most things here from tourist tat to bellydance costumes. Singing camels were the 'must buy' last time, before that, flashing pyramids. Tasteful or what?

We give you a map, walk you round pointing out shops that people may want to go back to. Then go for a coffee / tea at Fishawes - Cairos oldest coffee shop. A fascinating experience .... with people passing trying to sell you everything from watches to carpets.

Next stop, Mahmouds. 3 stories of bellydance heaven. Most dancers want to have a look here. Then you can do what you want. Shop at Mahmouds, wander round the market, go CD shopping ... the choice is yours.

We can include lunch in the day if required.

Trips to Costumiers
For those that want a made to measure costume. I normally go to Hanan Mahmoud and Eman Zaki. I have also taken groups to Paronics - Amira el Kattan, Aziz, Aida Nour and Sahar Okasha. It depends what style you like and what your budget is. 

Optional extra 'Couture Course with Eman Zaki' this costs £150 and needs a minimun of 4 participants - see right for more imformation on Emans costume course

Your guides
Everything you choose to be included as part of your Customised Cairo trip will be led by Kay or  where appropriate a specialist.

Part of what makes our Farida Adventures special is that they are facilitated by people that want you to get the most out of your stay in Cairo. We go to extra lengths to ensure you get the best tables at dance shows, the dance teachers you want and much more.

If you want additional things included when you get there, we will do our best to ensure that they happen. You can ask for us to come with you to ensure everything goes as it should - or you can just ask us to set it up and go do it yourselves. This way you can keep the price down.

After this, you choose what you would like included from the options shown on the right hand side.

If there is something that you want to do that is not included, let us know.
