Whether it is waking up and seeing the pyramids, or floating down the Nile this place has it all. It has the ancient historical sites for endless sightseeing - that gets numerous tourists lining up daily. Cairo itself is a metropolis like no other but New Cairo where the school is based is like a mini city itself. There is a buzzing centre, with an impressive number of expats living and working and revelling in the good quality expat lifestyle it provides.
