My wife and I very much enjoyed our tour of Islamic, Coptic, and Jewish sites in Cairo as part of a broader 10-day tour of Egypt that we took with Jakada Tours.

We saw the huge Citadel of Saladin and the immensely grand Mosque of Mohammed Ali (which sits within the citadel). Our guide Mohammed sat with us for a long time as we asked about how what we were seeing fit in with the big picture of Egyptian history from Byzantine times to the present—there’s no better way to learn the major periods of a country (like “the Fatimids, Mamluks, and Ottoman period”) than by standing on an overlook and having someone point out major architectural landmarks in Cairo that fit each phase!

In Coptic Cairo we saw the Hanging Church (built on top of the still-standing ruins of the Babylon Fortress, where the Byzantines made their last stand during the Arab conquest), the Church of St. Segius and St. Bacchus, and Synagoge of Ben Ezra.

Overall, we chose Jakada for our full trip because they had both great reviews and highly competitive prices—and it turned out to be just as good as it sounded! We got a private tour for considerably less than most companies offer group tours. But at the same time, we are very happy with the quality of the accommodations and service we received from our hosts. Jakada put us in an excellent hotel with a gorgeous view of the pyramids out our window (we’re told this is all the rage these days for visitors to Egypt)! This served as our home base for the trip when we were not on the cruise or desert adventure.

This day was our final day in Cairo and it was so special. We had a lot to see but also wanted to make sure we got souvenirs, lots of pictures taken and spent our time wisely. Maryam took us to the Citadel on a beautiful tour of The Mohammed Ali Mosque and to some special shops in the Bazaar to get some items that we were looking for, along with lunch at this amazing authentic Egyptian restaurant. We really go to know her on a personal level during this time and she shared her incredible knowledge with us about Cairo’s history. We also visited Old Cairo, where she took us to the Hanging Church and Abu Serga Church. We didn’t feel like tourists when we were with Maryam. She really made us feel as though we were apart of the historic stories she was sharing and brought out personal touches for our children (10 years old) to keep them engaged and excited about all of the information she was sharing. My husband didn’t think he’d be that excited about this day of the trip and he ended up loving it more than anyone, all thanks to Maryam. Thank you Maryam for everything!

We spent our last full day in Cairo with Maryam on this tour. Cairo is a very busy and crowded city and one of my main concerns was safety for my children. With Maryam we felt so incredibly safe and protected. She knows the city so well and seemed to know the officials at all of the sites. she was informative and made sure we got the full historical background on every thing without making it feel like we were in class. She is also the sweetest and kindest. My 10 year old daughters loved her. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering travel to Cairo. Her personal tour was unmatched!

We arrived back to Cairo and wanted a tour of Cairo that was based on the city and other more modern sites. The market was out first stop it was hectic but very well protected and Abdull was an amazing guide. With his help we figured out the best route to get souvenirs and he gave us A LOT of free time to do our own thing. From there we went to the citadel and then Coptic area. All beautiful and must see places. Abdull made the experience wonderful and was extremely knowledgeable as well as calm and patient. A plus is his picture taking skills! I absolutely recommend.

The Egyptian museum was surreal. To actually see all the history was amazing and listen to the information from our knowledgeable tour guide Maryam made it even more fascinating. The Citadel, Mosque and Bazaar were definitely added bonuses.

My husband and I enjoyed visiting the Citadel of Saladin and Coptic Cairo Church. It was really interesting to learn about these important religious structures and the historical figures behind them and to see the gorgeous architecture. Mohamed, our guide, was knowledgeable about these structures' history and did a good job answering our questions about these sites.

The hanging church had to be the highlight of today. Growing up in a Christian household but open to all religions, and seeing the room in which Mary and Joseph stayed really touched my heart. Another highlight was actually seeing a body that was mummified was a bit shocking but eye opening.
