After you have had your fill of fascinating ancient artifacts, your tour guide will escort you to the area known as Coptic Cairo where you will take in the Hanging Church of Cairo and the interesting Ben Ezra Synagogue.
The last stop of the day will be in Islamic Cairo and the colorful and historic Khan El Khalili Bazaar. This area of Cairo is widely agreed to be a must-see when visiting Egypt. The bazaar, in existence since the 14th century, consists of narrow streets and enchanting cafes and shops full of keepsakes. Shop if you like, but if not, you won’t be disappointed exploring this charming part of Cairo.
