Tour description

In this tour, I try to contact the past and the present.to recognise the ancient Egyptian lifestyle.
To know what the ancient Egyptian did work to live.
The most important thing is, to enjoy your shopping when you are on a vacation!!!
This Tour is more than a shopping tour it is to explore and learn about the different local crafts which all of them rooted to ancient Egypt, The Egyptian Gov. does its best to help these crafts to continue, in a way to keep the beautiful link to the past.

That is why Cairo has a lot to offer to the shopping freaks. You can enjoy your vacation while picking up whatever catches your fancy . Shopping in Cairo will stay an exhilarating experience. In Cairo, textiles, cotton clothing, traditional pottery, and wood carvings, ornate meerschaum pipes, carpets, prayer rugs, gold and copper work, leather goods and souvenirs, local dates and desserts are very popular.

Cairo region could well be the most deserving choice for shopping in Egypt; because Cairo is one of the biggest and most developed cities.

Our guide was kind, and took us to nice shops. Unfortunately, the day after, we asked locals, and the items we bought from the tour turned out to be extremely priced. In the end we felt very disappointed.
