I'm assuming you've taken the political/security situation into consideration.

Try these guys:

or get to the border at Taba and take a bus to Cairo (which for security reasons now runs through Sharm el-Sheikh and not directly west across the peninsula).

Attention! You have to acquire an Egyptian visa in the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv / Egyptian consulate in Eilat, prior to crossing the border, in order to visit Cairo.

The on-arrival-visa given on the Egyptian side of the Taba border (near Eilat) is a Sinai-only visa!

Amos is right. In fact the on-arrival visa at Taba is only good for the South Sinai coast as far as Sharm al-Sheikh - anywhere else in Sinai needs a full visa in advance.

And please check with the Egypt forum for updated information about this journey given the current situation in Sinai.
