    I do not live in Egypt. However, I am Egyptian.

    As for for your question, it is really a matter of taste.

    Ill list the themes of every trip you wrote:

    Tour of Citadel, Mosque Sultan Hassan and bazaar- Muslim (Islam) Theme
    Tour to the Pharaonic Village-Ancient Egyptian theme
    Tour of Coptic Cairo, Hanging Church, Abu Serga & Ben Ezra-Christianity theme
    Tour to Fayoum,Dashur-Exotic place theme
    Nile dinner cruise & show-Very fun theme

    I really can’t choose one for you because they are all wonderful =) . So just choose one according to the themes I listed.

    P.S.: Personally, though if I were to choose for ,myself I would go to Tour of Citadel, Mosque Sultan Hassan and bazaar. Very old places and the citadel for example dates back to the time of the crusades.

    1 – "Tour of citadel,mosque Sultan Hassan and Bazaar" >> I strongly recommend this trip for you.

    2 – Nile dinner cruise & show >> this one would be really great trip.

    3 – Egypt is famous for its coptic art,the hanging church and der sant Catherin .. so u have to make your own choice.

    4 – forget about the Pharonic village >> tourists don’t usually like it .. visit Luxor .. as it contains 1/3 of the most ancient monuments of the whole world.

    enjoy ur stay in Egypt 😀

    Don’t waste your time going to Pharaonic Village if you are on a short schedule. Do Coptic Cairo and Nile dinner cruise and show.

    Tourists usually have different interests according to their backgrounds and personalities.
    I recommend according to sequence :
    -Citadel and Sultan Hassan
    -Pharaonic Village
    -Fayoum and Dahshur
    -Coptic Cairo and Ben Ezra synagogue
    -Dinner in a floating restaurant

    The Citadel, Mosque and bazaar for sure. For a really wonderfulevening take the Nile dinner cruise and show. You will really love it when the boat starts it’s return trip to the docking point and you see the Nile skyline at night. It is one of the most wonderful sights of Egypt. Hope your camera takes good night shots.
