      Again we had Mohammed As our tour guide was again on time. Really enjoyed our time with him really friendly and felt comfortable. Had our welcome drinks Sugarcane juice which was so refreshing. Loved the Khan El Khalili Bazaar which we visited when it was not busy so had a good walk around. Visited the mosques which were breath-taking and with so much history.
