Public Question Asked by Manfred Ronstedt about Cairo
we are a German couple coming to Cairo from 2.1. - 4.1. We are looking for design, arts and architecture and like to experience the life of the locals in trendy places, clubs, bars and restaurants. She is medicine student and likes to learn about university life.
We are looking for a guide to assist as, a female guide would be appreciated by her.
We don't like guides who brings us only to their partner shops. We are not out for buing this souvenir stuff.
The only standards sightseeing we like to do is half a day for the Egyptian Museum.
Who likes to be our guide?

HI - I am not a guide but can help you find a female registered guide here in Cairo.
Cairo is a fabulous place for the sorts of things you want to see, you must visit and walk in Old Cairo to see the incredible old houses and caravanseri (many now restored), the beautiful Islamic architecture of both the houses and the old mosques, madrassas etc. Coptic Cairo has some incredible and very old churches with a great deal of art inside - icons and other beautiful paintings, as does the Coptic Museum.
Cairo has lots of galleries and many art museums (I can send you our comprehensive list of museums in Cairo if you give me your email - there are over 100 in Cairo alone and only a handful are Pharaonic, many contain the work of living or recent artists). You will revel in the art in the Egyptian Museum of course - make sure you find the Meidum geese, one of my favourite pieces....
Plenty of trendy cafes and bars (but for an old cafe try the Cafe Riches Downtown, it also has a gallery space) especially in the Zamalek area and as part of the big hotels (like the Hard Rock at the Grand Hyatt) - and you might enjoy the Cairo Jazz Club (which has all sorts of music, not just jazz)

Hope all this helps and if I can help any more please don't hesitate to be in touch. Have a wonderful stay
