We are a family of 4 coming to Egypt in July (yes, I know it is the hottest month... only time we could all come). We are on a Pyramids & Nile tour with a side trip (by ourselves) to Jordan. We arrive late in Cairo from Jordan & are looking for a place to stay. We saw the post on Le Meridien. Was it Pyramids or Heliopolis (any difference?). Which is better? Will the hotel arrange a meet & greet at the airport or should we plan to take cabs etc? We have 2 full days to explore Cairo & will already have visted the museums & pyramids on the tour... should we take cabs to bazaars etc?
Food... I am not but the rest of the family are vegetarians. Any suggestions on food? Should we worry about fruits/drinks & stomach problems? Any magic potions out there?
Thanks in advance for your help.
