“Thanks to Pedro Osorio for the wonderful trip through Lisboa. He was the best guide one can get and we loved at the end of the trip the city, the people and the local food as much as he does. Absolutely perfect!”

Ms. Madison's review for another Urban Adventures tour
“I had a fantastic time! A fast paced walking tour right through the heart of the city, down side streets I never would have otherwise visited. It was a great orientation to the city. Our guide, Myo, was wonderful and informative, giving us information not just about the immediate area and sights, but about Yangon and Myanmar culture in general. He also recognised a few days later when we were waiting at the airport. Such incredibly friendly service! Very happy with the tour definitely exceeded my expectations.”
ITINERARY

Time to get up close and personal with one of the most important aspects of Cairo - its Islamic heart.

Your private Islamic Cairo city tour begins with a visit to the Citadel of Salah Ed-Din. Located high atop Cairo, the Citadel boasts magnificent views of the city. Built by the Arab hero Salah ad-Din, the Citadel primarily functioned as a military garrison, as well as serving as a royal residence for over 700 years.

Continuing in the historical traditions of Islamic Cairo, our Cairo tour next pays a visit to the famous Sultan Hassan Mosque, which dates back to the 13th century. Considered to be one of the masterpieces of Islamic art and architecture, its history also includes time spent as a school. Equally as impressive is the Mohamed Ali Mosque, one of Cairo’s most visible landmarks, with its twin minarets rising high atop the Citadel.

Shifting gears, our Cairo city tour heads back to the streets and towards a famous local bazaar, Khan el-Khalili. A labyrinth of narrow streets and passageways, Khan el-Khalili is one of the world’s largest bazaars and offers a truly authentic local Cairo experience. Among the world’s oldest bazaars, dating back to 1382, Khan el-Khalili offers an experience unique to the old streets of Islamic Cairo, and affords the opportunity to engage with locals, as locals do, hunting for bargains and relaxing with a coffee as the hustle of the bazaar passes you by.

Following recent safety incidents, we recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest information on travelling in Egypt before your departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all areas of your itinerary. We have links to prominent government travel advisories and regular updates on issues affecting this trip on our Travel Alerts page - www.intrepidtravel.com/au/travel-alerts. 

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers
