        We had stayed for several days in Cairo and visited most of the must see sites so we wanted to see something different. We took this tour and were pleasantly surprised to find that our tour was adjusted to fit our specific desires. We got to see the Citadel, mosques and churches in Cairo. We had a nice lunch while touring and everything was done with professionalism and courtesy. Our guide had the caretaker of a mosque open up a restricted area to view the tombs of Kings that had ruled there. We had a great time.
