Day 1 Arrival in Cairo
Waiting for you at Cairo International Airport (CAI), our local representative will pick you up as soon as you get off the plane. He will also give you a transfer to the hotel. The rest time will be your free time. 

Egyptian currency: The official currency of Egypt is Egyptian pounds. Before leaving for Egypt, you need to exchange for some international common currency like the US dollars or Euro. After arriving, you can exchange for some Egyptian pounds at the airport, your hotel lobby (usually the four-star or five-star hotels) or other exchange places with the international common currency. Also, it is suggested to prepare enough cash instead of using bank cards, since the ATM machines are not commonly seen in Egypt and the exchange rate is relatively high. In addition, many retailers are not used to give changes, so taking enough change with you is necessary.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Accommodation: InterContinental Cairo Semiramis
