What to expect

Visit some of the iconic sites of Cairo, together with a local guide at your disposal. This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first-time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

Your first stop is the Saladin Citadel, which is the icon of Cairo that was home to Egyptian rulers for some 700 years. Their legacy is a collection of 3 different mosques, including the Mohamed Ali Mosque and several other palaces. Not only that, but it also houses some fairly indifferent museums and a couple of terraces with a view over the city.

You will also stop at the Mohamed Ali Mosque that has a terrace with an amazing view. Sit on the terrace that has superb views across Islamic Cairo to the tower blocks of Down Town and, on a clear day, the Pyramids of Giza. Then, you will continue to be driven through Cairo's old and modern streets until you reach Khan El Khalili, a famous bazaar and souq (or souk) in the historic center of Cairo. It was established as a center of trade in the Mamluk era and since become one of Cairo's main attractions for tourists and Egyptians alike. It is also home to many Egyptian artisans and workshops involved in the production of traditional crafts and souvenirs.
