We have some free time, mainly afternoons, on our tour during our stay at Le Meridien Pyramids at Giza.
We'd like to use this time to see more of Cairo.
Can someone tell me where Le Meridien Pyramids (on Alexandria Road ??) is located in relation to the Pyramid site and to the Giza Metro stations, please.
From Le Meridien Pyramids, is it feasible to use the Metro to access central Cairo, particularly Egyptian Museum, Coptic Cairo, Old Cairo? Our tour doesn't allow much time at the museum or visit the other sites.
How long should we allow for a taxi to the above areas, weekdays (Mon-Thurs) late morning/early afternoon, early January?
How many people can one taxi accommodate? We are a group of four.
How far is Le Meridien Pyramids from the pyramid/sphinx site? What can one see around there, without actually entering the site? We spend a morning there as part of our tour, should we plan to re-visit in some of our free time?
Are there other places of interest (other than souvenir shopping) close to Le Meridien Pyramids at Giza?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
