Historic Islamic Cairo 2
Part of Egypt’s rich architectural heritage comes from its religious roots. Cairo is often referred to as the city of 1000 minarets.
On this tour, you will visit some of the most famous and important Islamic sites in the city. Visit Ahmed Ibn Tulun Mosque, the 2nd oldest mosque in Cairo, built between 876-879.
You will be picked up at your hotel in your private air-conditioned vehicle and taken to two of the sites used in the James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me”. Ahmed Ibn Tulun Mosque and the Gayer Anderson Museum.
After enjoying your quiet tour of these two sites, you will take a short drive to Sultan Hassan and Al Rifai Mosques, the twin mosques near the base of the Citadel for a tour.
N.B.: This tour is good for people who do not want to walk long distances as the sites are more contained than some of our other tours.
