2.5 days in Cairo - itinerary

Hi all

Can you please critique this itinerary?

Day 1: arrive 12:55pm, afternoon at hotel

Day 2: full day Giza (Pyramids/Sphinx), Memphis, Sakkara, Dashur

Day 3: full day Old Cairo (including Citadel, Sultan Hassan Mosque and Khan El Khalili bazaar)

Day 4: morning Egyptian Museum, afternoon depart

Appreciate the two full days are very busy, but I have really want to see all the ancient sights in Cairo.

I don't think we have enough time to get to the hotel and refresh, then get out to Giza in the afternoon before the Pyramids and Sphinx close - especially if we hope to enter a pyramid.

My only concern would be day 4 - it might be a bit tight but that depends on what day of the week day 4 would be, the time of the year and the departure time of your flight.

I agree with Sally, if your flight out on day 4 is late afternoon and you arrive at the museum for opening, you will be okay. I did the same type of thing (full on 2 days) on my first visit to Egypt and survived, problem is I fell in love with Cairo and have to keep coming back;)
