Great Muslim history and overview

Guide was good but so much more invested in the Muslim heritage that the experience felt unbalanced.

It’s not a full day it’s half day it lasted around 3-4 hours. I also didn’t cover all of Coptic and Islamic Cairo so be aware of that.

The locations are great and organization too, but the guide wasn't particularly what I wanted.... Comparing to other tours I did in Egypt this one wasn't that great. Although not bad either

Our guide Mahmoud Ismail was fantastic (so good we requested him for our tour the next day!). Very informative and always by our side to make sure we were safe and not bothered by salesmen. Entry to all stops was seamless and he got us in quickly. Private car was clean and excellent driver. Highly recommend!

Coptic and Islamic Cairo

I really enjoyed my tour of Coptic and Islamic Cairo and would recommend this for seeing more of Cairo. My guide, Sayed Mahmoud, was excellent and gave a good overview of the places visited. Unfortunately, Ben Ezra Synagogue was closed. A full 7 hours was not needed, but I did not have lunch included.

Essential for visiting Cairo

Essam was the perfect guide, so full of passion, energy, kindness, and all around good vibes! He was clearly in love with his city and made sure we loved it too, channeling his endlessly energy into sharing the beautiful history of his country, excited and cheerful every moment of the tour. Though we booked a non-lunch itinerary, he gave us a "surprise" and took us to one of his favorite haunts, buying us 3-4 pitas each stuffed with falafel, babaganoush, and ful. What a guy! You made a mistake if you miss this tour.

My tour guide was Essam and he was super nice, accommodating and flexible. He went out of his way to take me to get coffee from a nice coffee shop and even treated me to the coffee even though I was not expecting that. He was very knowledgeable, explained things well, and answered all of my questions. He's also a great photographer. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in learning more about the history of the Islamic religion and culture.
