Day 1:
Old Islamic Cairo tour

Your Allover Egypt tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo, Old Cairo is charming yet chaotic. The narrow golden-stone streets of the World Heritage Site have been captivating visitors for centuries. One of the oldest Islamic cities in the world, it is home to magnificent mosques, madrassas, hammams, and fountains.

Start your full-day tour with the Mosque of Muhammed Ali: also known as the Alabaster Mosque for the material which covers it, this enormous 19th-century place of worship was inspired by Istanbul’s New Mosque.

The move to visit The Citadel: originally constructed in the 12th century to protect the city from attacking Crusaders, the hilltop Saladin Citadel offers some of the most spectacular views over the surrounding city.

After that, you will visit Sultan Hassan & El-Refaie Mosques. There are two mosques in the same district, which are located in the Castle Square area in the El Khalifa district in Cairo, whereby the older mosque is called the Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan (as it hosts a school and a mosque), which is considered as Egypt’s fourth pyramid, and Al-Rifai Mosque.

You will also visit the Mosque of Ibn Tulun: the oldest and largest mosque in Cairo, the Mosque of Ibn Tulun is famed for its beautiful architecture

Later on, visit the old market and Bazaar of Cairo called Khan El Khalili Bazaar. Prepare to be amazed by the local, handmade items. After enjoying your time wandering through the market, your full-day tour will end with a drop-off back at your hotel.
