After Breakfast at your hotel, you will be picked up by our guide for this wonderful trip. The afternoon will be spent at the Egyptian Museum where you can gaze at the wonders of King Tutankhamen, including his golden death mask. At the museum, you'll also get the chance to see the mummies of some of Egypt’s most famous ancient pharaohs (optional) and see thousands of artifacts and historical treasures.
After the museum the tour group will go for lunch at a local restaurant, followed by a visit to the Citadel of Saladin, a fortress built between 1176 and 1183 A.D. to protect Cairo from the Crusaders and rebuilt by Muhammad Ali Pasha, whose mosque inside the citadel is a “must-see."
From here you will be taken on a tour of Cairo's most famous Churches, including The Hanging Church and the Church of St. George the Martyr. These two churches were built into the walls of the Fort of Babylon and its remains could be Cairo’s oldest structures; and the Church of Abu Serga (St. Sergius), where, it is said, the Holy Family took shelter in a cave, with the church being erected her to commemorate this. This whole area is a world-famous destination for Pilgrims. Before being driven back to your hotel, you will have the opportunity to visit the old market of Cairo (Khan El-Khalili) to test your haggling skills at the bazaar.
