“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Tucked away in Old Cairo is The Hanging Church, a Coptic Christian church with an interesting history. It is a short stroll from the only synagogue in Cairo, which is also worth checking out.

“Too Awesome”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Everything the whole experience was awesome--our friend is an Egyptologist and it was awesome having him with us or we wouldn't have understood all the history.
