Join us for a day tour to some of Cairo's most interesting and historical sights.

The tour starts with a pick up from your hotel by our driver. The first visit is to the Salah El Din Citadel, which was constructed by Salah El Din on the Moqattam hills to defend Cairo from the armies of Crusaders. After that, visit Mohamed Ali Alabaster Mosque, which was designed by the architect Yousif Boushnaq, a Turkish man who came from Istanbul specifically to build the great mosque for Mohamed Ali, the ruler of Egypt from 1805 to 1849.

After this, enjoy an included lunch that will be served in a local restaurant. Then, we continue driving to the area of Islamic Cairo, where you will be able to explore Khan El Khalili, Cairo's old bazaar. Afterwards, we move on to Coptic Cairo to visit the Hanging Church, Ben Ezra Synagogue, the church of St. Barbara and the church of Abu Serga.

After an insightful and interesting day sightseeing, we head back to your hotel.
