CAIRO TRANSPORT - CAIRO EGYPT TRAMWAYS - BUSES

Cairo TransportCairo Transport - Probably the best way to get around the city is to take a guided tour, which will take you to the various attractions. This way you don’t have to worry about driving or finding alternate transportation.

There is a system of Tramways and Buses that serve most of the city of Cairo. It tends to be very crowded and some say unreliable. There is a subway though it only services a small area of the city.

It has been said that a Taxi is the most recommended means of transportation for tourists that are visiting the area. They are white and black and can be stopped anywhere in Cairo by waving to the driver. Be sure to budget this into your trip so you have enough money if you plan to take a taxi wherever you are going.

There are various Rental Car Agencies in Cairo. Hertz, Avis, Alamo have offices in the city and at the airport and that is just to name a few, but driving in Cairo is not easy so be prepared. You will also need an international driver’s license too. In the US you can acquire one at AAA for about $10.00. You will want to have a good map with you at all times if you are planning to drive around the area. Follow all the rules of the road and obey parking signs to avoid getting any fines during your trip.

Since walking is going to happen. All the attractions in the area require walking to see the sites you will wish to bring a couple pairs of good walking shoes so that you are comfortable. However you decide to get around the city we are sure you will enjoy it as much as the millions of other people that come to see the city of Cairo each and every year.
