Looking for tours to experience authentic Cairo?. One of the must-do attractions in Cairo is the large tourist bazaar at Khan EL-Khalili and its surroundings. The history of the area goes back to 1000 years ago when the city Cairo was first established as a fortified city. The city accommodated the large Wekalat “shopping agencies” or as known nowadays as “shopping malls”. With the birth of tourism at the end of the 18th century, the shopping area was switched into a Tourist bazaar which was specialized in selling real antiques, and gradually became for tourist souvenirs!
This is just a small part of our tour, and shopping is just an optional part. The core of this tour is to explore Islamic Cairo and all that El-Muez street has to offer from ancient high mosques and minarets to ancient Islamic houses, schools, and palaces.
We will pick you up from your hotel (after breakfast at 9:30 am, or after lunch at 3:00 pm).
The tour starts by the gates of the old fortified city to watch the real old wooden fortified gates, as well as the ancient surrounding wall of Al-Qahira. We continue to walk El-Muez street and watch the great ancient mosques and buildings. We finish our tour in Khan El-Khalili bazaar.
