Your Cairo tour starts with a visit to the Citadel of Salah Ed-Din. Located high atop Cairo, the Citadel boasts magnificent views of the city. Built by the Arab hero Salah ad-Din, the Citadel primarily functioned as a military garrison, as well as serving as a royal residence for over 700 years. It is now a preserved historic site that’s home to a number of museums, such as the Egyptian National Military Museum.

From there, you’ll continue on to two notable mosques, the Sultan Hassan Mosque and the Mohamed Ali Mosque. The former dates back to the 13th century. Considered to be one of the masterpieces of Islamic art and architecture, its history also includes time spent as a school. The Muhammad Ali Mosque is a building that’s hard to miss: its twin minarets make it one of the first things you see when you approach the city from any side.

A trip to the famous Khan el-Khalili Bazaar is the final stop on the agenda. A labyrinth of narrow streets and passageways, Khan el-Khalili is one of the world’s largest bazaars, and offers a truly authentic local Cairo experience. Among the world’s oldest bazaars, dating back to 1382, Khan el-Khalili offers an experience unique to the old streets of Islamic Cairo, and affords the opportunity to engage with locals, as locals do, hunting for bargains and relaxing with a coffee as the hustle of the bazaar passes you by. Buy some souvenirs or sip coffee while doing some people-watching in this vibrant district. Make sure to haggle with the merchants to get the best deals. Book now before space fills up on this comprehensive tour into the heart and soul of Cairo.
