Ahmed was so friendly and welcoming. He really took the time to engage and answer all of my questions about Egyptian way of life. I felt like I was hanging out with a life long friend. He was also a lot of fun. I am...More
The best part about working with this agency is that YOU are in the driver's seat. Our Guide, Gouda, was so polite, friendly, and genuinely committed to making the evening what WE wanted it to be. Lots of options, and Gouda was wonderful in helping...More

YES! You will be too late for any of the landmark sights to be open, but the market place is lively all night. Call one of the guided tour agencies and specify that you are interested ONLY in the bazaar (souk). Thousands of people roam the streets with endless rows of booths selling mostly trinkets, but you can find some nice items, especially if you are looking for something specific. You can negotiate, but since you are American, you will be hounded by beggars and the merchants will expect you to pay a higher price. Still, give them your bottom price and walk away. Most will chase after you. The merchants in Cairo do not want Egyptian Pounds; they demand American currency. Also, you can wait for a few chairs & table at one of the cafes and sit and smoke hooka for awhile for a break. The streets are lined with people. The whole event should cost you no more than $35, no matter how many people are with you. Ask for a guide who can speak English. I typically pay the guide $2 extra to stay with me at all times. When you speak with someone from the agency, ask if they can include your trip to and from the airport.
And . . . a word of warning: getting through security at Cairo Airport is an ordeal. Sometimes, they take every item out of your suitcase, so if you are traveling with hand luggage, allow extra time.
(An added note: If you use the Private Guided Night Tour of Cairo agency, the best guide for this type of activity is a man called Gouda.)
