Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Cairo City Breaks give you the opportunity to explore the famous Giza Plateau, home of Egypt’s signature attractions visiting the Great Pyramids, ONE of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world including the Great Pyramid of Cheops, middle pyramid of Khephren and the little one of Mykerinos and mysterious Sphinx, the Father of Terror for the ancient pharaohs, the tour includes visit to the valley temple facing the great sphinx. All our activities are designed to have minimal impact on the environment.
All of our guides and suppliers work according to this concept. We send to the clients a "Code of Ethics" information sheet prior to travel, advising them the cultural and environmental impacts of their activities. As part of the code we advise them on how to respect the local environment to help preserve it for future generations.

We advise our drivers in Cairo, Egypt not to use the horn even in case you do not have any client and this is a behavior and we need to improve it. We use trains because they have minimal impact on the environment and how to be an example to the others in Cairo and Giza. We keep advising travelers to conserve water and put tissues in the bin. In my opinion, you should start by yourself and advise the others to do like you. That is the best example to be followed.

We offer charitable organization for our clients to visit, like Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi. Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi Organization (NGO) tries to improve the quality of education in Egypt at governmental schools especially primary schools and taking care of genius students at governmental schools. Also, that organization helps in wiping out illiteracy in addition to bringing up and educating orphans.

During the trip, we give a brief description of Egypt from Pharaonic time until the time of the revolution in 1952. We also give out information about the Arabic language, local religions and appropriate dress (particularly for women).

The most memorable was walking the Giza pyramids, solar boat and sphinx, but difficult to choose as the stepped pyramid, Egyptian museum and old Cairo were also quite special and our guide was good. Read full review
