Spiritually healing experience!

My friend and I being Muslims absolutely knew we had to do this tour during our time in Egypt! Our fantastic tour guide Eesaam was amazing with his knowledge of Islamic history, noting the differences in design for the different mosques/masjids. We were blown away by the beauty and the deep rich Islamic history of each masjid we visited. We even saw the prominent tombs of important Islamic figures in history which was a special experience.

We were spiritually healed and could not be more grateful to our amazing tour guide Eesaam he went above and beyond for us.

We would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Islamic history!

We will remember this for years to come.

The best way to strart the first day at Cairo. Our tour guide Sayed Mahmud and our driver Mohammad Basha was great. They showed us all the places in the tour and even more. Sayed patiently described everything for us and he really listened to what we wanted. Highly recommended, we are booking some more tours for the upcoming days after this great experience.
Informative and a Must Do!
