Join a local guide to get in touch with Cairo's Islamic heart. From backstreet bazaars to minaret-topped mosques, and neighbourhood coffee houses, these are the places that make Egypt's sprawling capital what it is. This is an essential Cairo travel experience!

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

Our 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.

“I do want to let you know that both Sayed and Dalia, were outstanding! Both were knowledgeable, helpful, enthusiastic, flexible, organized and very good at providing information in a way that was accessible. Both were forthcoming in their answers to questions, and willing to go beyond formulaic answers. And both were also simply delightful people, and a joy to be with!”
