What to Expect
At 8:00 am you will be picked-up from your hotel in Cairo or Giza. Start your full-day tour at visiting the Egyptian Museum of antiquities. It displays the largest and most precious items of the Egyptian art in the world. It exhibits a rare collection of over 250,000 genuine artifacts that date as far back as 5000 years, including an exclusive exhibit dedicated to the TutankhAmon - a collection of treasures, gold, and jewelry that were buried in his tomb for over 3,500 years before they were discovered in the 1920s when his tomb was excavated.
Then visit The Citadel, which is comprised of a number of important monuments: The Mosque of Suleiman Pasha, The Alabaster Mosque, Joeh's Walls and Mohamed Ali Pasha Palace. Lunch is included in between visits at a local restaurant (beverages are not included).
Then visit Old Cairo that is known as Christian Coptic Cairo. It is one of the most important locations visited by the Holy Family where the spiritual impact of their presence is most felt still; though their stay was brief, for the Governor of what was then Fustat enraged by the tumbling down of idols at Jesus' approach sought to kill the Child. But they took shelter from his wrath in a cave above which, in later years, the Church of Abu Serga (St Sergious) was built. This, and 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. Also 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. After your tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
