    Our tour guide was Tito, he was great and involved our 16 year old son in the conversation. This was not an area I would have walked around by myself. We saw 2 other tourists during our 3½ hour walk. Fascinating insight to Islamic Cairo, with many of the buildings still in use, but falling into disrepair. There is no toilet stop or food available on this tour so beware. Tito had a wealth of knowledge to share with us and we all came away feeling we had a good sense of how things had been.

    I had such a wonderful time. My tour guide was so amazing. She was so kind and concerned about everything I wanted to know and see. And she was so intelligent and could answer all my questions. I couldn't have imagined I would have such a great time on a tour.
