Know More about this tour

Around 7.00 pm Our Egypt Tailor Made tour guide will pick you up by a modern air-conditioned vehicle to Wadi El-Natrun (110 km from Cairo), the actual birthplace for Christian monasticism. Basically, there were about 50 monasteries, only 4 have survived into modern times. Begin your trip with Deir al-Baramus which is the oldest of the surviving 4 monasteries, and in many ways the most isolated, then proceed to visit Anba Makar, it is also called Anba Makaryus Monastery, Anba Makaryus was probably the first Monastery in Wadi El-Natrun, it has more than 100 monks and 600 workers in the extensive farm which spreads in front of it. Then proceeds to Deir Anba Bishoi whose body is still in the monastery. End your trip visiting Deir El-Suryani which is the smallest and most compact of the 4 monasteries.
