    The Nile has always thrilled me, providing a sense of unmatched living history. Enjoy the world's longest river by walking along shaded pathways, stopping by for a photo moment on the many bridges that span the river in Cairo, or take a cruise. We went on the Nile Maxim, a giant tourist boat with indifferent food, reasonable live band, spectacular belly dancer and a tannoura dancer who spent more time enabling photos than spinning! The boat was full that evening, so,we were overwhelmed by the noise and underwhelmed by the speed of service. But the Nile still enchanted

    An Oasis in the middle of Cairo. H.H. the Aga Khan made this possible. This park captures the true essence of the Fatimid period. A must visit for anyone visiting Cairo. A true tranquil place to relax.

    Cozy and in the middle of Cairo, now for Posh incomers, but still has its own heritage of shorter building and green tree streets, close to downtown Cairo, & Giza pyramids.

    So glad I came across this online. We walked from Coptic Cairo and it took us over a gorgeous footbridge. The grounds are peaceful, and the nilometer and the structure it’s housed in is really impressive! 40 per person, and a tip for whoever unlocks the door to the nilometer!

    We wanted to see some naturalistic areas near Cairo and Wadi Degla was suggested for its beauty and chances of wildlife sighting. It is really near Cairo just 15 minutes driving & the bright crowded noisy city is left behind. We hiked a bit & explored - very enjoyable. Saw some animal tracks, but those little Foxes were hiding. Nice! Enjoy!

    This is an amazing landscape, with stunning scenery. Great views from Israel into Jordan and Egypt across the borders. I think you can also see Saudi Arabia from some high points. Curious co-location of Bedouin communities, kibbutzim, the Israeli Defence Force and the holiday resort of Eilat! It is easy to drive around on excellent roads if you have a vehicle. If you do, make a point of visiting the Timna Geopark, where there is evidence of the Nabateans, the Egyptians as well as the Romans.

    Avoid week end crowds, it used to be impressive historically and it has not been well maintained, which is a pity indeed. The government should bring in Private Sector Companies to set up perhaps even tourist visit to beef up the entrance fee and generate income to spend on the renovations that the place obviously requires. Not recommended.

    Went in as was just walking past. Paid 20LE entry but not the extra 30 to take what the sign says as video camera. While in there I took a couple of photos (not videos) and some man got cross and I tried to explain it was photo not video and he said 60LE. I wasn’t having it so said ‘let’s go to man at the gate’ which we did. I spent 5 minutes trying to explain the difference between video and photos and in the end the guy at the window said ‘ok, ok. You go in’. I wasn’t having it so told him he ruined it and I walked away. Don’t waste your time or money.
