    I had a great day with Maged from Tree of Life tours. Maged patiently explained the many features of each site. My first time visiting a mosque and truly glad. It is an unforgettable experience exploring the narrow streets and bazaars. Stopped for coffee and shisha (also a first) at El Fishawy Cafe. The Tannouri dancing is absolutely beautiful. Whole day was way beyond my expectations!! A special thanks to Maged!
