El-moez street is such fun and an unmissable experience. My personal favorite thing to do in that area (the Fatimid quarter) is the climb up the Bab Zuweila minaret. Costs 20egp (literally 1 USD), and is almost always empty and quiet. You can see the entire skyline from the top and have the whole view to yourself! I also highly recommend Simon the Tanner Monastery. Hire a driver to get you there. It’s a complex carved into the side of a mountain with these enormous, intricately carved cave churches. And there’s an amazing zip line/ropes course you can do there as well!

Local experience

In Cairo you can wear t-shirts but I wouldn't recommend to wear shorts or crop tops. If you are coming for couples weeks It wouldn't be bad to learn on YouTube some basics of Egyptian Arabic before you arrive as it will definitely help you while you're here. Avoid taxi's at all cost, use Uber application which cost actually less than the taxis. If you do decide to take them decide the price before the ride and negotiate a bit but still I don't really recommend this option. Be aware that Egypt is way safer than some might think, you guy's will have no problem going out when dark as we say here that Egypt never sleeps. Don't drink the water here as even locals buy water from the market, you don't want to be sick while here! Also you should avoid any types of salads in restaurants. Don't book close to the pyramid as it is not a touristic neighborhood and their is not much to do either. Zamalek would be the best option as most expats are located there, everyone understands English, the restaurants and cafes are really good and it's close to everything. When the call of prayer goes on know that any music should be closed.
