Description

Your private driver and licensed guide will pick you up in your hotel at your desired time. Thereafter, you will enjoy a guided visit of the marvelous Egyptian museum and the two main old areas of the city: Islamic and Coptic Cairo. The first stop of your private tour is the incredible Egyptian museum. You will explore the collection of the museum and see the impressive collections of ancient Egyptian antiquities, which no other museum in the world hosts. The museum is entirely devoted to the legacy of the pharaohs, having more than 120,000 items on display. Your private guide is an expert in Egyptian history. Subsequently, you will discover the Islamic Cairo. You will explore and visit the main medieval Islamic monuments through El Darb Al Ahmar street. Your guide will tell you about the Islamic Sabil, Madrasa, Wekala, Khan, Bayts and many other monuments worth of visiting. In addition, you will also walk through El Moez street, listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site. There you will visit Al Hakem Mosque, Al Aqmar Mosque, Sabil Mohamed Ali and Al Azhar, the main mosque in Egypt. During your visit to the Islamic area you will, of course, have spare time to taste the wonderful gastronomy. Our guides will recommend you the best places to taste the local food. Finally, you will drive to Old Cairo Coptic area. This astounding quarter hosts one of the oldest Christian collections in the entire world. Here you will learn that it was not just the ancient Egyptian who left their mark in this land, but also the Copts, the early Christians from just after the time of Christ. You may visit the Coptic Museum and the six churches which date back to the early Christian era. The main of them are The hanging church, built in the 9th Century, St. Sergius, built in the 5th century, and Ben Ezra Synagogue, the oldest in Cairo.
