We (wife and I and 4 year old boy) have a 4-day stop over in Cairo on the way back to the US from India in September. Do the seasoned TripAdvisor travelers have recommendations for itinerary?
We are thinking of staying at a hotel in Zamalek.
Is it reasonable to try and do a day trip up the Nile or is 4 days to short?
Is there an interesting day train trip to take from Cairo?
I'm guessing that booking a pyramid visit from the hotel would be expensive; other options?
Also: Traveling from India, will we need to show a record of any particular vaccinations?
Thanks for any help!
Edit: should note we will be there in early September.Edited: 11:58 am, July 06, 2014
