Coptic churches. Having a prayer sung in my honor at one of the mosques below the citadel. The beauty of the citadel mosque’s interior.

Good tour, but disappointed

Our guide, Esam, was excellent and provided us with good historical background and information. The Citadel & mosques visited were fantastic. However, we felt cheated as we were looking forward to the Jewish synagogue which is included in the itinerary, however on the tour we were informed that the synagogue has been closed to tourists for some time already. I fell Emo Tours should have been aware of this and advised us accordingly. If I had known this, I would have only booked the half day Islamic Cairo tour and not the full day tour including churchs and synagogue.

First let me comment about Abrahim! He was amazing and very knowledgeable. He is also an amazing photographer. Overall the tour was amazing. We seen many wonderful landmarks and the hanging church was especially amazing. I could have not asked for anything more. I was comfortable and enjoyed my tour guides banter and jokes immensely. The driver with tour guide was a great option, it provided an educational experience! I have learned so much about Egypt and there culture.

They picked me up on time. Wearing masks all the time and sanitizing me whenever I reentered the car. Guide Hussam and driver Mohammed were very cordial and knowledgeable. As it was a private tour they adjusted pace to me and due to pandemic most of the locations were empty - no lines or waiting. Sites were impressive and I learned a lot about Cairo. Highly recommended.

We were picked up from our hotel by Mohamed, our first stop was Coptic Cairo where we visited 3 very interesting churches, including the hanging church and the church built over the cave where the Holy family rested when they came to Egypt. Mohammed was very knowledgeable about these churches. We then visited a synagog and then drove to the citadel, whose main feature is the alabaster mosque, which found very interesting, but found the whole citadel complex very rundown and scruffy and needing restoration, but there were fantastic views for the city. We then rode down to the Islamic part of Cairo, where we visited 4 large mosques. When entering any mosque, one takes ones shoes off, and ladies must have their heads and shoulders covered. Mohamed was very attentive making sure we had plenty of rests and drinks as my husband walks with a stick. The day finished with a late lunch at a buffet style restaurant, which was excellent. We can highly recommend this tour and Mohamed in particular.
