Cairo is a city which is full of tourist attractions. The beauty of the place is awe-inspiring. The land of pharaohs still attracts a lot of tourists despite its tensed atmosphere. Cairo tops the popularity chart among the places that are worth a visit in Egypt. It is best to hire a tour guide when making a trip of Cairo.
