You need a great guide for the museum!!
Ok so the Egyptian museum is bigger than you imagine and quite intimidating. There's just so much stuff Also, not exactly in any particular order sometimes. Enter Abdul, our amazing guide we were lucky enough to have for 2 days in a row. He navigated us through to see the best highlights among other things, which helped build the story we learned at Giza the day before.

The Ali mosque is beautiful and has an amazing view of Cairo that's a must see. I should mention that Abdul knows all the best picture spots at each location and will suggest them if you don't have the eye for it. Also, he speaks incredible English (very important). Great day, highly recommend

New and touching experience
Oct 2021 • Solo
The hanging church had to be the highlight of today. Growing up in a Christian household but open to all religions, and seeing the room in which Mary and Joseph stayed really touched my heart. Another highlight was actually seeing a body that was mummified was a bit shocking but eye opening.

Perfect day tour with
Sep 2021 • Friends
An excellent day tour to see all the main sights around the city.
Our tour guide, Mohammed Sadek was beyond excellent and really added to the overall enjoyment of the tour. He went out of his way to ensure anything else we wanted to see was included. He also took the time to take us to coffee shops and even provided an opportunity to make turkish coffee ourselves.

Beautiful Sightseeing in Cairo
Aug 2021
My husband and I enjoyed visiting the Citadel of Saladin and Coptic Cairo Church. It was really interesting to learn about these important religious structures and the historical figures behind them and to see the gorgeous architecture. Mohamed, our guide, was knowledgeable about these structures' history and did a good job answering our questions about these sites.

Beautiful historical experience
Aug 2021
My wife and I very much enjoyed our tour of Islamic, Coptic, and Jewish sites in Cairo as part of a broader 10-day tour of Egypt that we took with Jakada Tours.

We saw the huge Citadel of Saladin and the immensely grand Mosque of Mohammed Ali (which sits within the citadel). Our guide Mohammed sat with us for a long time as we asked about how what we were seeing fit in with the big picture of Egyptian history from Byzantine times to the present—there’s no better way to learn the major periods of a country (like “the Fatimids, Mamluks, and Ottoman period”) than by standing on an overlook and having someone point out major architectural landmarks in Cairo that fit each phase!

In Coptic Cairo we saw the Hanging Church (built on top of the still-standing ruins of the Babylon Fortress, where the Byzantines made their last stand during the Arab conquest), the Church of St. Segius and St. Bacchus, and Synagoge of Ben Ezra.

Overall, we chose Jakada for our full trip because they had both great reviews and highly competitive prices—and it turned out to be just as good as it sounded! We got a private tour for considerably less than most companies offer group tours. But at the same time, we are very happy with the quality of the accommodations and service we received from our hosts. Jakada put us in an excellent hotel with a gorgeous view of the pyramids out our window (we’re told this is all the rage these days for visitors to Egypt)! This served as our home base for the trip when we were not on the cruise or desert adventure.

He also took us to the market and made it very easy amongst the hustle and bustle of people....again...I couldn't have asked for anyone better!! At the end he found us the best Shwarma spot 😉😜!!

Visit Cairo!
May 2021 • Friends
What an experience today!
Our guide Jacob (Ahmed Fayed) was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful just like the Giza tour Yesterday. Mohamed Ali mosque was stunningly beautiful located in a fortress built by Saladin. Before the market we visited the site where the Holy Family hid Jesus during the reign of Herod and the ancient church built above. We finished with Jacob's favorite shawarma, coffee and fresh squeezed fruit. Fantastic day in historic Cairo
