“great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

What a souq! be prepared with the phrase 'La shukran' as everyone is trying to sell you everything. I felt safe at all times. Bought a few souveniers, but bargain, bargain, bargain! It was quite a fun game!

“You'll enjoy the essence of old cairo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Amazing place. you'll enjoy walking through the old streets and buying souvenirs. But the shop owners can be very persistent. So watch out.

“El Khan- Best Market of the Middle East”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Khan el Khalili is amazing. it's not problem free, but you will find amazing things. women will need to be modestly dressed, and should learn to deal with the constant staring and name calling. it is preferable to go with a tourguide or a trusted Egyptian person. BUT with a little bit of bargaining, one will buy amaaaazing jewelry, scarfs, bags, silverwear, accessories, etc. unique oriental egyptian experience that should NOT be missed. also, the Naguib Mahfouz restaurant at the Khan is superb; clean and delicious. Order their mezzah.
