What to expect
  • Meet your guide at your Cairo hotel, and travel to the Old City in a private, air-conditioned van with WiFi on board. Start the day at the Mosque of Ahmad ibn Tulun, then continue on foot to Bab Zuweila, one of three surviving gates to 10th-century Fatamid Cairo. Trace a route down Muezz Street to Al Khayam Yah, where artisans have sewn ceremonial tents for weddings and celebrations since medieval times. Visit a series of religious landmarks: explore the 15th-century mosque-mausoleum of Circassian Sultan al-Mu’ayyad Shaykh, the moving Sabil-Kuttab of Tusun Pasha, and the Mosque of al-Azhar, which has been a center of Islamic theology for over 1,000 years. Dive back into modern life in Khan el-Khalili bazaar, where you’ll find aisles of colorful stalls overflowing with handicrafts, antiques and perfumes. Take in the hospital, madrasa and mausoleum built by Sultan al-Mansur Qalawun in the 13th-century and the madrasa-khanqah of Sultan Barquq. See the Old City’s Museum of Textiles and the Mosque of al-Aqmar, then visit Bayt al-Sihaymi to get a glimpse of daily life in an Ottoman Cairene household. End your walk at the northern walls and gates, then finish the day with return transfer to your hotel.

That’s was our second tour with the guide Mimo and we don’t have anything bad to say, really, it was an amazing experience! He is an Egyptologist so he has a lot of knowledge to share and he does it. We did a tour that, sadly, it’s not the common, but it should be. We went to the mosque of Mohammed Ali in the middle of the citadel, that was so stunning and had the most beautiful view of the city! We were blown away since the minute we stepped in there! Then we went to the museum of Gaer Anderson to see the Islamic style of the rich houses, which was curious and we saw one of the locations that was shooted a scene of a 007 movie, and then we saw the oldest mosque in Egypt as an architecture which is called Ibn Tolon mosque with its spiral minaret. Certainly those are places that we wouldn’t go to if we didn’t have Mimo to show us. I can assure people that is necessary to book a guide to explore Cairo and Giza, and I completely recommend Mimo!
