What to Expect
Get to know the real Cairo on this downtown Cairo walking tour. For the next 4 hours, you’ll experience Cairo the way locals do, and see the city from their perspective. Start your Cairo tour at New Opera Square in Zamalek, winding your way through Cairo’s ancient and recent history, emerging, fittingly, at Old Opera Square near Attaba. 

From the city’s most beautiful bridge spanning the Nile, you’ll head towards Liberation Square, which hosted many events during the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, and is a significant landmark in the city’s modern history. In addition to the beautiful 19th and 20th Century architecture featured in downtown Cairo, your walking tour will allow you to check out modern artwork in the form of graffiti. Typically, this graffiti expresses locals’ views towards the Revolution and various political parties. In this area, every corner has its own story to tell, with most intersections featuring a statue of an important historical figure. Not to worry - your local guide will help fill in any gaps to give you better context for what you’re seeing. 

To cap off your local Cairo walking tour, indulge in a local dish: Koshary, in an authentic local restaurant. Koshary is a mix of rice, pasta, lentils, fried onions, and chili sauce, and is an absolute favorite. You’ll also have the chance to try Egyptian falafel and ice cream before the night is through, giving you a full taste of local life here, all in just 4 short hours!
