Know More about this tour

Your guide picks you up in the morning and drives you to Cairo Necropolis, also called City of the dead or "Qaraafa, Araafa," which was founded in 642 AD.

It's a 4-mile-long (6.4-kilometer-long) cemetery stretching from the northern to the southern part of Cairo. To the people of Cairo and other Egyptians, it is simply el'araafa, which is Arabic Egyptian for "the cemetery".

It's a bustling grid of tombs and mausoleums where people live and work among their ancestors who have passed. Many residents live here to be near their loved ones or because they were forced from more crowded areas in Cairo.

Your guide shows you around, and drives you back to your hotel after the tour is finished.

    Hoch interessant ! Zunächst scheute sich der insgesamt sehr freundliche ältere Führer, der stets Getränke und kleine Süßigkeiten zur Stärkung bereit hatte, wohl ein wenig, mir die Realität zu zeigen und wich etwas aus, dann kamen wir aber doch dorthin, wo die Menschen, die sich kein eigene Wohnung leisten können, in den Grabhäusern ihrer Verstorbenen auf dem Friedhof wohnen. Eine merkwürdige Atmosphäre zwischen Leben und Tod, aber sehr erlebenswert, zumal sich nur wenige Touristen dorthin verirren und man dadurch einen recht individuellen Eindruck des Lebens in Kairo bekommt. Mein freundlicher Führer wusste dann auch viel Interessantes zu berichten über die Lebensumstände, wir konnte mit seiner Hilfe sogar in einige der Grab- und Wohnanlagen hinein und er erreichte es, dass ich in zwei sogar fotografieren durfte. Sehr empfehlenswert, ein liebenswerter, kundiger Führer !

    I could have definitely done without this. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. But it was very depressing and I felt constantly being asked for money because it is where the poorest of the poor live.
