What you'll do

Enjoy a fantastic orientation tour of Cairo on an 6-hour excursion that takes in the major monuments of Saladin citadel , The mosque of sultan Hassan and Refaai , Al Azhar Park.


Following a hotel pick-up from Cairo or Giza, you will drive up to the Saladin Citadel, constructed by Salah al-Din on the Moqattam Hills in 1183 AD as a defence against Crusader armies. Known for its fresh air and sweeping views of Cairo, it is now a preserved historic site of mosques and museums, including the Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha.

Designed by the Turkish architect Yousif Boushnaq, who came to Cairo especially from Istanbul to build the great building, the mosque's alabaster structure stands in beautiful contrast to the sandstone city.
proceed to the Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan, one of the largest and most captivating structures in Cairo, built between 1356 and 1363. Marvel at the Mamluk architecture and pick up insights from your guide regarding the architectural excellence of this building.

End your tour with a visit to Al Azhar park which is located in the heart of old historic Cairo and enjoy the stunning panoramic view of Cairo.

The pyramids was truly the most unique experience out of them all. this is why you come to Egypt and when you come out, it is important that you link up with somebody that truly knows their history of those pyramids, Mydo and his team are experts when it comes to this. they have been doing this for a long time and it seems like they know everybody that works at the pyramids. and that is a really good thing to know, they are well-known and respected Around that area

This is the second time I go out with Yoman (one of Mido’s guides). Communication with Yomna was easy, accurate, and she showed up on time. In addition, she is friendly and cares about the comfort of her guests. I really enjoyed this tour and she seems to be knowledgeable about the history of the sites.
