Full description
Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo or Giza to visit both Coptic and Islamic parts of old Cairo. First, you will go to the Sultan Hassan Mosque, which is one of the largest and most important medieval mosques in the world. Next, you will explore Coptic Cairo, visiting the Babylon fortress and the St. Sergios Church dating back to the 4th century, where the holy family took refuge. Saving the best for last, your tour will end with a 3-hour Nile cruise with dinner. An evening cruise on one of the Nile boats is a wonderful opportunity to spend and look at Cairo's skyline at night. During the evening, you will find both local and international cuisine options at an open buffet. In addition, you will watch a belly dance show, listen to Arabic songs and music, along with a Tanoura show while indulging in your delicious meal. Spend an evening in the open air, enjoy the good food, the unique entertainment and the magnificent views of the banks of the Nile.

Good but on the cruise the driver needs to give the couple more space

The tour guide was excellent and his English was very good. He was much better than the last tour guide. He knew a lot about history and went out of his way to bring us to the market bazaar. I liked his attitude and his behaviour was a lot better than the last tour guide

Punctual schedule and new car. I requested a guide in Spanish but sent a guide in English (a tired and grumpy gentleman should be in the hospital). I did not receive water too. lead to perfume shops where they receive commission. explanation of places poorly and unwillingly. I did not receive the water in the items included.

Could not identify the exact subject of travel in advance

There are no exact schedules, no onboard meals, no onboard shows, and no boarding guides. I didn't feel bad
