Complete Cairo Tour with Tickets
Having picked you up from your hotel in Cairo between 7:30 am and 7:45 am, we'll make our way to the historic centre of the largest city in Africa.
Our first stop will be the Cairo Citadel, an enormous medieval fortress which has become the best known non-ancient monument in the city. Inside we'll take a look at the beautifully decorated Mohamed Ali mosque, known as the alabaster mosque for the soft white stone from which it is built.
Leaving the fortress behind, we'll make our way to the Khan el-Khalili market, the most famous in Cairo, and whose labyrinthine streets are like a real open air museum. Khan el-Khalili is the perfect place to buy souvenirs and reproductions of objects from ancient Egypt.
We'll stop to eat after visiting the market, with a menu including various salads and a main course accompanied by rice and vegetables. And for dessert, a refreshing fruit salad.
In the evening we'll dedicate three hours to the Egyptian Museum, the most important museum not just in the country, but perhaps in the world. Here you can find the masterworks of the ancient period, and the star attraction the legendary treasures of Tutankhamun.
We'll pass through Coptic Cairo, one of the most unique neighbourhoods in the city, visiting Al-Muallaqa, better known as the hanging church, constructed as it was upon the ruins of the tower of Babylon. Then nearby we'll see the Ben Ezra Synagogue, found where it was thought the baby Moses was found thousands of years ago. Then to finish, we'll head to the church of Saints Sergius and Bacchus also known as the cave church, where the holy family were hidden after fleeing to Egypt.
This unforgettable sightseeing experience will end back at your hotel at around 4 pm, having discovered the most important places of interest in Cairo.
