All about the trip
In the morning, our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will start by visiting the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. It's the richest museum of Egyptian antiquities in the whole world and contains pharaonic treasures over 5,000 years ago. It also contains Tutankhamun tomb treasures which draw crowds from all over the world. Your visit to Egypt is not complete without seeing the exhibits of this museum. You can also visit The Royal mummies room (additional cost). We will then proceed to the massive medieval Salah El-Din citadel, which was once a stronghold against the Crusaders. Explore this ancient fortress and marvel at its brilliant domed ceilings, suspended lights, and views of Cairo. The citadel houses the Alabaster mosque of Muhammad Ali. We will stop for lunch at a local restaurant and then drive to Old Cairo quarter. Coptic Cairo is a part of Old Cairo which encompasses the Babylon Fortress, the Hanging Church, The Greek Church of St. George, and many other Coptic churches and historical sites. It is believed in the Christian tradition that the Holy Family visited this area and stayed at the site of Saints Sergius Church (Abu Serga). You can also enjoy Ben Ezra synagogue and Church of St. Barbara. After finishing your tour, we will transfer you back to your hotel in Cairo.
