  • Money matters: Egypt uses the Egyptian pound, which is currently worth about 24 US dollars. Credit cards are widely accepted, but it’s always good to have some cash on hand for smaller purchases of souvenirs and gifts.
  • Getting around: Cairo, Egypt’s capital city, is very congested and traffic can be chaotic, it will be better to organize your transportation with the traveling agency to enjoy visiting Giza Pyramids, Islamic, and Coptic Cairo, and other attractions in Cairo.
