Full description
Get picked up from your hotel and visit one of the oldest streets in Egypt, known as El Moez Le Din Allah Street, a place still indicative of historical Cairo. Discover the various monuments spread along both sides of the street, including Bab El Fetouh and Bab El Nasr, then move towards the northern side of the city, to El Darb El Asfar. In the most ancient quarter of Islamic Cairo, visit a school in Nahassen, the El Aqmar Mosque, the Mosque of El Saleh Tala, the Dome, the Hospital and School of Qalawoon, and more. Then, get a new perspective of this great city from the Cairo Tower, located on Gezira Island (Zemalak). This 613-foot-tall tower is said to imitate a lotus plant, and is the world's fourth-highest tower. It is made of granite, the same material used by ancient Egyptians, and is about 150 feet taller than the Great Pyramid of Giza. Conclude your tour with a visit to El-Fishawy Cafe. Evolving from a small local cafe to the most popular coffee shop in the El-Hussein area, El-Fishawy is the oldest cafe in the heart of Khan El-Khalili and has hosted kings, princes, famous artists, and intellectuals who have passed on stories about the place since its conception in 1771 AD. Relax on a transfer back to your hotel.

The guide was too close to my wife and dedicated himself to buying things from her throughout the Tour The truth was very uncomfortable The tour was good and the Tower is not worth it
