Full description
Your tour will start at 7:00PM, at which point your tour guide will pick you up from you hotel by air conditioned van to explore the Old Cairo streets. Your guide will then indulge you into the beauty of the city and into a whirlwind of anecdotes, history, legends and intrigue. During your 4.5-hour tour, all of your senses will be engaged. You will hear and learn a motley of amazing stories about Cairo as you ride and walk through secret doors and enjoy a wonderful walking tour of Islamic Cairo and Al Moez Street. El Moez Street in Old Cairo stretches for almost 1 kilometer, and branches into long quiet streets and alleys. Your historic tour of Old Town will take you along all of the lesser-known must-see local spots, such as the Old Market, Old Cairo hidden galleries, and a local food market only for locals that no tourist know about. At the conclusion of your tour, your guide will return you to your hotel in Cairo.

They were super accommodating as we were out in an airbnb which was a little far, so they were happy to collect from another location. I thought we would see more of downtown Cairo, not just the market but thats okay, it would also be good to have entry to at least one mosque to see inside, even if its only at the entrance. Otherwise, was a fun evening overall!

I would recommend this tour to those who are looking to explore and understand Cairo in more detail ranging from his history to religion. Our guide Ali was great. Lots of knowledge and very friendly and helpful. He guided us through so many ‘secrets’ and explained the mosques, streets and overall the history of Egypt/Cairo very thoroughly. Bonus points for Ali for taking some amazing photos of us.

I absolutely LOVED this tour! Talk about experiencing the real and some of the best parts of Cairo!! Our guide Aly was very knowledgeable, funny, and super great at taking pictures for us along the way!! Our in in house photographer!! There are some amazingly beautiful architectural features to the Mosques and details he very freely pointed out. We also had time to do some shopping and had a memorable time sharing a meal with one of the stare owners! Awesome tour and a beautiful evening to see real Cairo at in it's most beautiful light!
