And no, we do not do guided tours. We do our own planning, and visits. It is just going to be our kids, my wife and I. Though you are probably right in not letting our two younger kids “wander off by themselves”.
See if your hotel can organise a driver and english speaking guide for the day or even just a driver. But they might not speak much English, unless you can speak some Arabic? That's what a friend and myself did for three days while in Cairo and we travelled up to Alexandria and then on to El alamein to see the war graves.
Next day did a another tour to Wadi Natrum
And on the final day went to Saggara, Memphis and Dahshur
Make sure you plan plenty of travel time in your journey as the traffic in Cairo is a nightmare. And if there is protests happening, then certain areas will be severley restricted.
