The conference organized a numbers of outings in Cairo and Alexandria. In Cairo, the participants enjoyed a Nile cruise lunch followed by a trip to the pyramids and sphinx. Visits to the Egyptian museum (next to the hotels) were individually arranged. In Alexandria, we had a half day excursion to the landmarks of the city and a water front lunch. Several participants went to Luxor and Aswan after the conference. For more info on tourism in Egypt visit:
