What people are saying about Mosque of Muhammad Ali
Tarek knew a great deal about local Cairo and broader Egyptian history, very carefully and sincerely explaining the beauty of the culture, as well as its struggles.
When I signed up for this day I assumed that I was going to be with a group, but what a surprise...one on one...Fayda and I spent the entire day together. She filled my head and eyes with so many thoughts and visions. What a great day of walking in this historical time!
A jam packed day of activities complimented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who was both warm and welcoming. Be prepared for a fast and fun day in Cairo seeing all the religious sites of four religions and the primary bazaar of Cairo. Not really a shopping day with an hour to hour and a half in Khan Khalili. If you want that just spend a day at Khan Khalili with or without a guide. The time in the "Khan" is more than enough to do some shopping and get the feel of the bazaar. An all-around solid cultural package.
The tour was informative and interesting. The guide (Aya) was professional and full of information. I do feel the Coptic Quarter could have a more comprehensive visit. We missed a few main buildings and it is only when I asked to see them, that I was allowed. I would also have liked to have seen the Coptic Museum which we walked past. Khan El Khalili was canceled (was only told that day) as apparently it was closed to tourists that day (New Year's Eve). An alternative was only offered when I made a fuss and called the tour company. They were happy to cut the tour short and bring me home. What a waste! I demanded something else much to the rep's annoyance. For this reason, only 3 stars. I would not recommend this tour company. I was brought to another mosque which was great as well as another museum . I paid for it myself. The tour company also didn't respond to any of my 4 emails seeking confirmation; the number listed doesn't work (I and other Egyptians tried it).
