Great day in Old Cairo
I had a fantastic day with Mohamed Mahmud exploring these amazing sights in Cairo. During the day I learnt a lot about the history of the city. We had enough time at each stop and Mohamed made sure that I feel safe ans comfortable throught the day. I truly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see these incredible monumenta in Cairo!

Coptic and Islamic Cairo at its finest!!!
Mar 2021 • Couples
Tired of sarcophagus, pyramids & mummies? If you are experiencing overwhelming ancient egyptian information its time to direct your focus to a different era of egyptian civilization. Experience the hidden gem of coptic & islamic cairo —a relaxing tour as you go back to the intersecting history of islam and christianity that succumbed egypt. Our guide turned to personal friend — gamil gamal never fails to give us astonishing information as we visit old mosques & churches. My personal favorite was our visit to the alabaster mosque & the caverine church of the holy family. We were provided with a good driver & was treated with a delicious traditional egyptian lunch! This tour is highly recommended.

Exploring Coptic and Islamic Cairo with Gamil Abdel Aziz!
Feb 2021 • Couples
So at the beginning just want to mention that it was our second day trip with the best guide ever Gamil and his amazing driver Mgad (in previous excursion we want to Alexandria).

It was my dream to explore Coptic and Islamic Cairo to see how different religions was developed and existed side by side in Cairo. And thanks to Gamil and his historic knowledge, I was able better understand the inside of religions and what is behind their great mosques and churches.

During our 6 hours trip we had an opportunity to visit: Islamic Cairo - Mosque of Muhammad Ali, Mosque of Ibn Tulun, Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan, Al-Rifa'i Mosque; Coptic Cairo - The Hanging Church, St. George's church, The Cave Church.

Also we had our free bottles of water and soft drinks to keep as hydrated during the excursion day. And we had a chance to try Egyptian shawarma for our lunch (that we enjoyed a lot).

As a conclusion if it was able I would love to repeat this day!

Friendly, knowledgeable, and beautiful history
Sep 2020 • Solo
I had the most amazing time touring Coptic and Islamic Cairo with Mohammed! We visited the Hanging Church, the Babylon Fortress, Kefran Church, Saint Parpara Church, the Saint George Church, and the Amr Mosque. Mohammed was very friendly and knowledgeable. I traveled to Cairo by myself on this trip, and signing up for tours like this one is the way to do solo traveling right. There was also many precautions taken to help with COVID-19, in case one was wondering, like wearing masks and hand sanitizers given out. I would absolutely recommend taking this tour for anyone!

We were moved by the experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
This was a treat because we didnt think about a Christian Church & a Synagogue in a Muslim country but it was great to see & learn the history. The Mosques at the Citadel where the most moving. Aziza did an amazing job at explaining the history. We were able to speak to some Muslim women & pick up literature about the religion. We we open to the experience.Aziza & Bassem Hoka did an amazing job getting us around & explaining things on our last tour day. The best was when we got to sit in the Bazaar,have lunch & shop at an upstairs shop that Aziza too us to that had rock bottom prices.

Walking in ancient holy footsteps
Nov 2019
A super trip. After seeing the ancient sites at Giza this tour took us in the holy footsteps of the early christian and islamic settlers. It was well organised and very interesting. The pick-up from our hotel was prompt - our journey throughout the day was by private car with a driver. Walking at the various sites was not arduous but good sturdy footwear is recommended. We were most fortunate to have Mostafa as our guide - he was courteous, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were sad to wave goodbye at the end of the day.
