Description:

Judaism, Islam, and Christianity have all left their indelible mark on Cairo. Discover rich landmarks relating to all 3. On your private tour, see mosques, churches, and synagogues. Your private guide educates you on these diverse cultures and the resulting modern-day society.

Begin with the story of the Copts, the native Christians of Egypt, and visit the third-century Hanging Church to admire its vivid murals and marble pulpit. Gather further cultural insight into this society among the thousands of artifacts at the Coptic Museum. Then wind through the streets to reach the Ben Ezra Synagogue. See its grand interior and hear of its absorbing past from your own Egyptologist.

Recharge your batteries over lunch before embarking on the journey through Islam. The prominent citadel of Saladin—the Islamic fortress guarding mosques and monuments within—is the main focus. The Ottoman-style Mohammed Ali Mosque is an architectural highlight and one of the city’s most famous edifices.
