Coptic and Islamic Tours in Cairo
Egypt is the land of celestial religions before being the land of the pharaohs, that's why it is considered to be the best destination for both those who seek classic tours in Egypt to see the ancient temples and pyramids and others who like to visit the historic religious remains in Christianity and Islam.
Our Coptic and Islamic tours in Cairo among the informative religious and spiritual tours in Egypt is created to let you discover the earliest churches in the area known as Old Cairo, one of the spots where the Holy Virgin Mary and her baby Jesus Christ stayed during their journey fleeing from King Herod's persecution, as well as the historic mosques of Islamic Egypt as one of the best tours in Cairo that we plan daily from any hotel or even if you have a layover in Cairo Airport.
Today, we will have great Coptic and Islamic Tours in Cairo as we will see the most remarkable highlights of Islamic Cairo trips starting from the hotel accompanied by a private tour guide and an exclusive vehicle towards the Cairo Citadel or most known as the Saladin Citadel, this huge fortification was built during the 12th century by the famous Muslim leader Salah Al-Din Al-Ayyubi to secure Cairo from any danger during that time, the area was carefully chosen and later used for centuries as the residence of government by other kings and rulers of Egypt.
We will enter the citadel that contains more than one building from the inside, but most significantly is the Alabaster Mosque of Mohamed Ali Basha who ruled Egypt from 1805 till 1849 and founded the great history of Modern Egypt. The mosque is called the alabaster mosque due to the wide use of granite panels on the inside and the outside of the great mosque which reflects the beautiful Turkish style of architecture.
We will then move to the heart of Cairo to start our Coptic Cairo tours, visiting the Hanging Church of the Holy Virgin Mary which is built upon the ruins of the ancient Roman fortress of Babylon, the Church of Saint Sergius or the Cavern Church where the holy family took refuge during their stay in Cairo, we will have a brief historical discussion inside the two churches to know the circumstances of Christianity in Egypt since that time, then we will have a tasty lunch meal in a good quality restaurant overlooking the sacred area of Mari Girgis that is stuffed with ancient churches and the Coptic Museum.
Transfer back to your hotel or any other requested drop-off location after your Coptic and Islamic tours in Cairo are done, hoping that you enjoyed your Cairo excursions.
