          Beware of the closing time of 4.30 rather than 5pm as displayed by ticket office..who will still take your money.
          We were looking forward to seeing this after enjoying a visit to the citadel. We arrived at the ticket office booth at 4.15 and noted that the closing time was 5pm (the ticket office said to close at 4.30). We paid in cash and were advised that the official had no change. The entrance ticket includes the smaller Mosque Al Rifai and we spent 10 minutes looking at this before making our way to the Mosque Madrassa Sultan Hassan. On arrival we were told that it closed at 4.30 and were ushered away. We felt cheated but mostly disappointed not to be able to see it.

          Another great mosque to visit when you are in Cairo, it is certainly worth a while, just have a look at the pictures I have uploaded here.

          Hit or miss event
          Dinner was on a rooftop restaurant overlooking the pyramids. The Light show was just a few spotlights as the history of Egypt was played over the loudspeakers. To be honest, not really worth the time spent.

          TOURIST TRAPS—Save yourself from this experience
          This whole thing is a collection of tourist traps. The tour starts at 8, but the Souq doesn’t open until 11. First, Hassan was 20 minutes late. It was all down hill from here. The description of this tour suggests an in depth tour of the Souq. That didn’t happen. What did happen was a series of tourist traps including the buffet. $20 for lunch here is WAY expensive. The shops he takes you to show you how whatever is made and then try to sell you that thing that is low quality and priced for tourists. Some of the goods are also counterfeit (like Gucci sweatshirts). Once we realized where things were headed we were angry and renegotiated the tour to skip these “artifacts” and instead go to the Citadel since the tour started at 8:30, but the Souq doesn’t open until 11. Hassan is an architect, so he was very knowledgeable about the Citadel. Great! Things seemed back on track. We went to the Souq for about 45 minutes. That’s it, and there was no in-depth explanation about any burial grounds or a mosque visit as suggested in the description. Then, on the way back to the hotel he tried to charge us extra for the citadel tour—he suggested that he typically charges $30 per person for that tour. It was 30 minutes. The entire tour was stressful. Save yourself and book one of the other tours of the Souq or go on your own. The Souq is not that big and can be navigated easily as a tourist.

          Excellent and always on time
          Abdul was our guide for this and two other transfers while in Cairo. He was friendly, punctual and knowledgeable. I would definitely use this company, if I ever visit Cairo again.
