    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.

    Definitely a crazy place I would say but not difficult to get around and shop. Don’t bother buying stuff at the tourist attractions in Egypt go here and walk around, remember you can look without buying it just takes a lot of will power, however don’t talk pictures unless you are prepared to tip the store attendant. I shopped here and it was definitely good value for money and also remember to brush up on your negotiating skills because it’s a must at most places some people will have a flat price and they will not negotiate but in those cases it’s mostly reasonable so don’t worry too much.

    we visited this as part of garbage city tour with Real Egypt tours,
    at first we were sceptical as the smell is over powering but after the first street watching how hard these people work is overwhelming,

    the cave church itself is totally out of this world

    I love Festival City! It's very big and expansive. There are so many well known international brands and other nice local shops, stands, stalls and kiosks as well. There's also a big Carrefour, Cinema, Banks and numerous services. It's one of the 'newer' Malls in the New Cairo area. It's worth mentioning that designer brands and apparel are not available in Festival City Mall. Was pleased to see that the Mall connects to Ikea- (one of my favorite places to wonder in). The best thing about this Mall is the Food Court, which has tons of options. There are about 4 locations for Kids Entertainment, including Magic Planet, a bounce hall and obstacle course-like place. I adore 'The Village' area of the mall, which has lots of wonderful restaurants, (casual, as well as formal) and that beautiful fountain in the center. It has multiple floors and is quite well maintained, except for the toilets, which can be dirty even though they are being constantly cleaned. Everyone should endeavour to visit Festival City Mall. It's one of the best Shopping Malls in Cairo! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    For those passionate about the Islamic architecture, the Mosque of al-Azhar is a must see. Founded by the Fatimid conqueror Gawhar al-Siqilli in 970, it is currently a great mixture of styles and periods. For example, the qibla wall dates from the 14th century, Sultan Quaytbay added one of the minarets in 1475 and the main façade is from 19th century, while the double arched gate of the main façade belongs to the mid-18th century.
    Briefly, the visitors can admire the Fatimid, Mameluke and Ottoman architectural features blended together in majestic building.
    It is important to mention that the mosque-madrasa complex of al-Azhar is one of the oldest universities in the world.
    Another detail that makes al-Azhar so unique: it was a Shiite theological center until the 1260s when the mosque was re-inaugurated as a Sunni institution.

    Islamic Cairo has long been a center of religion and learning- It is worth the visit, but there are lots of ways to experience this. We combined Islamic Cairo with the Citadel/Muhammad Ali Mosque, so we were able to discuss a lot of the history while overlooking from the Citadel.

    Walking tours are popular, but we chose to only walk at the more popular locations and use a van to take us around, while getting more history about the areas. We also took the tour guides recommendation for a local Egyptian restaurant (yes, we are aware how this normally works, but we were very happy with the recommendation and value- Have the discussion on value and expectations before you agree!).

    It is difficult to get an understanding of the Egyptian people and experience without discussing the history of Islam in Egypt, this is the best place to have that discussion.

    We took an Uber($3) for 4.2 km east to the entrance of this historic part of Old Cairo. Once getting over the limited access highway, we took a 1.2 km walk to see a 13th C mausoleum, the 13th C Qualawun Complex and up to the 14th C Beshtak Palace, then retraced to the classic El Fishawi Cafe and a view of the 10th C Al-Azhar Mosque. From here, we easily accessed a taxi back toward Tahrir Square.

    Well I would say it’s definitely very interesting as you don’t have to pay an entrance fee plus you see some beautiful architecture and it’s also a different part of Egypt which is not always advertised, however that being said it is very busy. I would definitely squeeze it in because it’s got some good history to it and the church of st George isn’t far also so you can do both together.
