    What to Expect
    Your private tour starts at 8:00 am with a pickup from your hotel in Cairo. Start your full day tour visiting Old Cairo, also known as Coptic Cairo, a center for Christian activity. It is believed to have been an important location visited by the Holy Family, and where the spiritual impact of their presence is most felt to this day. They took shelter in a cave above which, in later years, the Church of Abu Serga (St Sergious) was built. The whole area of the Fort of Babylon is a destination of pilgrimage not only for the Egyptians but for Christians from around the world. An air of piety and devotion pervades the whole district there.

    You will be able to visit and enter the Church of Abu-Sergah and St. Barbara, the hanging church, and the old Jewish synagogue – Ben Ezra Synagogue. Approximately 2 hours will be spent in these areas.

    Next comes lunch at a local restaurant where you will spend about an hour.

    Then continue your day tour to Islamic Cairo, founded in 641 A.D by the first Muslim leader, Amr Ibn Elas. You will be able to visit and enter Masjid Amr Ibn Elas Mosque that was built by him in 642 A.D.

    This will be followed by a visit to the largest mosque in Cairo which is El Sultan Hassan Mosque, also known as `Madrasa El Sultan Hassan` that was founded by Sultan Hassan in 1356 A.D The Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan is a massive Mamluk era mosque and madrassa located near The Citadel in Cairo. At the time of construction, the mosque was considered remarkable for its fantastic size and innovative architectural components. The mosque was, for example, designed to include schools for all four of the Sunni schools of thought: Shafi’i, Maliki, Hanafi and Hanbali.

    You will spend about 2 hours in this portion of the city, then be brought back to your hotel in the afternoon.
