    So much to see. The best food for the mind. We wanted to come back and spend another couple more days to try to absorb more and appreciate more.

    We took a Nile cruise guide were lucky enough to get as out tour guide Ahmed Haggag , and he was simply the best in every way imaginable. His knowledge was extensive from the small details to the largest. His personal touch was everywhere. We needed something from the pharmacy, he went out of his way to get what we needed. We always wanted to see Egypt and we have all seen the documentaries, but until they are fully explained with knowledge that you do not get except from someone who has lived it. it changes everything and makes it even more wonderful than you thought. This is what Ahmed did. I am from the US and am not a sponsor or anything like that,, Ahmed is just that good and I highly recommend him for your Egyptian Vacation. His whatsapp number is +20 100 099 1026. The cruise itself is good but the stops at all the shrine sites are fantastic . Once again Ahmed made our trip unforgettable.

    Enjoying the morning in this easily walkable 5000-year-old Christian cultural center of Cairo is important to understand the whole history of Egypt. The streets are decorated in frescos and include many small, very old and amazing churches still in use today including the Hanging Church and the Greek Church of St. George. You are able to visit the actual site where Joseph and Mary lived for a time hiding Jesus during Herod's slaughter of the innocents. Inside the walls and twisting cobblestone pathways is a large shop filled with the most high-quality souvenirs we found in all of Egypt including jewelry, statutes and Lapis carvings. The store is run as a fund-raising arm to support Christan's locally so guides are not motivated to bring you shopping there and unfortunately, they do not have a website, but rest assured it cannot be missed as it is clearly the largest of the shops.

    The Mohamed Ali Pasha Mosque at Citadel of Saladin, which was constructed to protect the city from the Crusaders, is also called the Alabaster Mosque because of the color of the walls. It was built between 1825 to 1848 by Mohamed Ali Pasha who was the Turkish ruler of Egypt and was designed by the same Turkish architect who designed the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. If you are going to visit and tour the mosque, remember that you must take your shoes off as soon as you enter. They sell a little sock/shoe cover, but you can also just walk around in your own socks. Setting up on a hill overlooking Cairo and being visible from much of the city makes this the most popular mosque in Cairo for tourist to visit, even though it is neither the oldest nor most historic. I agree with another post that said it is more impressive from a distance than up-close. Photos are allowed, and since you are on a hill it provides some great views of the city. (PaM)

    This place is a green lush oasis in unbearably hot Cairo in July. It's full of trees and shaded areas where numerous families were picnicking and having a good time
    We had lunch at their restaurant which has a stunning Arabesque decor and overlooks the park and Mohammad Ali Fort. The food was OK but nothing special.
    Overall, it was a nice cool relaxing respite from a very noisy city.

    Enter near the AL Azhar mosque entrance. Only worth going along to the middle cross junction area. Beware of pushy sellers. Don't be fooled by converted prices.
    Difficult to arrange an Uber taxi from here.
    Plenty of choice. Buy all souvenirs here.

    Cozy and in the middle of Cairo, now for Posh incomers, but still has its own heritage of shorter building and green tree streets, close to downtown Cairo, & Giza pyramids.

    Good luck in getting to the base. Try going to the top on a clear sunny non smoggy day. Take plenty of photos.
    Toilet at top too.
    Hope not too crowded at top otherwise difficult moving around . Amazing views from here.
    Couldn't see pyramids from top. :(

    One of my favorite malls in greater Cairo, always has the essentials with a vast selection of stores. I would recommend the mall any time of the week besides the Weeknd’s

    Yesterday I attended the oum Koulthoum hologram concert with marwa naguy and Riham Abdel hakim.
    Th performance is excellent. The committee in charge of the opera is very professional they chose the best voices and programs.
    Everyone who love beautiful art must attend a concert in the Cairo opera house.

    We went through Vantage travel to book a nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Omar was so great with booking everything and make life so easy. We got onto the Acamar cruise and everything was as expected.

    Our tour guide Ahmed Hassan was so excellent and took us around for the full 5 days. His knowledge was unbelievable, he is really a genius. Highly recommend going with him. Learnt so much and he is a really cool guy.

    No complaints. 5 out of 5.

    This is an amazing landscape, with stunning scenery. Great views from Israel into Jordan and Egypt across the borders. I think you can also see Saudi Arabia from some high points. Curious co-location of Bedouin communities, kibbutzim, the Israeli Defence Force and the holiday resort of Eilat! It is easy to drive around on excellent roads if you have a vehicle. If you do, make a point of visiting the Timna Geopark, where there is evidence of the Nabateans, the Egyptians as well as the Romans.
