Tour description

You have surely heard of the Khan El Khalili Bazaar.. but do you know of its dark history?

In this storytelling tour, we take you through time as you enter the gates of Cairo to experience the past and the present:
Why is Cairo the capital? What does the word 'Cairo' actually mean? And what makes Egypt so special?

See historical landmarks while strolling through a local market typically made for Egyptians to prepare themselves for the odd customs and traditions of a wedding ceremony.

Learn about the Islamic culture as we enter the Azhar Mosque to learn of its importance then we end up in the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar where we leave you to do some souvenir shopping

You will get the chance to compare a local market with the infamous Khan El Khalili bazaar

Muy buen tour gastronómico! El tour es pago y cuesta €30. No es un free walking tour. A mi parecer un poco caro por lo que se hace. La guía muy buena y divertida!

Durch den üblichen Stau schrieb ich vor dem Treffen mein eventuelles Zuspätkommen. Der Guru antwortete nicht, war wohl schon da und ist gegangen, hat aber jegliche Anrufversuche blockiert und auch nicht auf meine Nachrichten geantwortet, obwohl diese ankamen. Haben dann noch ne Stunde gewartet... Nichts passiert. Schade.
