I went on this tour with my 8-month old baby as my husband was working on the day. Mohamed was so incredibly kind - he carried my backpack and stroller whenever possible and gave me ample of time and space to take care of the little one whenever needed. We were a small group of three and the tour took 6 hours, including lunch. In that time we covered both Coptic Cairo and Islam Cairo, which was exactly what I hoped to do. We even took the metro and minitaxis! The areas were both so interesting and different. If you have the time, I would highly recommend a tour with Mohamed. You would be in good hands.
