    our Cairo tour guide will meet you in your hotel either in Cairo or Giza .

Begin your trip with Deir al-Baramus which is the oldest of the surviving 3 monasteries, and in many ways the most isolated, then proceeds to Deir Anba Bishoi whose body is still in the monastery. You will end your trip with Deir El-Suryani which is the smallest and most compact of the 3 monasteries.
    optional stop for lunch then transfer back to your hotel
