Surprisingly I found this the most interesting of trips whie visiting Cairo. Thoroughly recommend this tour. Guide was very open minded on religion and its continued influence in modern Eygpt.
Excellent tour! Tarek was knowledgable, patient and still as enchanted by the rich history as I was seeing it for the first time.
We had a fantastic tour of Coptic Cairo with our excellent guide, Amgad. He was very well informed, and able to answer all of our questions. Amgad's english was perfect, and he was very passionate about his work. It was an amazing experience - one that we won't forget.
The experience was wonderful and the guide made the tour. Not enough finger time to describe. All of Egypt was magnificent and the people!!!
Amazing Tour! We had a great guide Fouad Salah. Very knowledgeable. I was overwhelmed standing at the entrance to the cave where The Holy Family lived for 3 months. Love it all Coptic Caire, The Hanging Church, Abu Serga, Ben Ezra. Owsome.
Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide. Pickup and drop-off were punctual and the tour stops covered very well. The sights were far less crowded than many other Cairo tours. Thoroughly enjoyed by all of us.
This tour was wondeful. The guide was very friendly, helpful and extremely well informed about the history of the times, area, activites, and the items in the museum. Would recommend this tour and guide to everyone.
Many thanks to our guide Shereif for making this segment of the trip both educational and enjoyable.
The tour company's Khaled Lofty is the most expert and friendly Egyptologist in Cairo and the driver was superb, a must for Cairo traffic.
VERY positive experience with Viator. Heba was an excellent guide, very thorough, excellent English, and included the Coptic Museum as well. I would highly recommend her for anything!
Enjoyed this day very much. Guide very good and informative, friendly. Also driver very friendly and polite and helpful.
I was extraordinarily impressed by the Coptic Quarter of Cairo. I was amazing to bring to life stories you learned about in church. The Hanging Church and the Coptic Museum are absolute musts along with Ben Ezra which is absolutely beautiful.
Beautiful, All religions in one area. I recommend this tour as your first tour in the country. you get alot of history and the tour is about 4 hrs so you get back to your hotel to get some rest from the long flight to Cairo.
Again the guide the same as for my other Cairo trips was excellent. She was extremely informative and really a delight to be with. She has so many insights into this part of Cairo and was very open to responding to all my questions. The tour company was again highly reliable.
The guide, Ahmed was superb. Very knowledgeable. Spoke English very well. We really enjoyed both of these tours.
Excellent guide, learnt alot about the different religions.
An excellent trip! A great way to see another side of Cairo.
Amazing structure and content! More amazing history about how it was built, and a strong message for all Christian worlds. Thanks to my tour guide, an excellent job!

The tour guide we had was fantastic! He was extremely enthusiastic and knew everything about Cairo!
As a Christian this was one for the books. It was absolutely mind blowing to know that you were standing where the holy family had been. The churches were very beautiful. Our Egyptologist was very knowledgeable.
It would be an injustice to miss this tour. We arrived at Cairo Airport around noon and went straight to the tour. With Cairo traffic we probably spent an hour en route, and our guide answered dozens of questions along the way, so the drive itself was also like a mini tour! Our Egyptologist guide was infinitely kind and qualified. He spoke superb English and had a thorough knowledge of each of the sites we toured. He readily answered every question we had about any and every aspect of Egyptian culture, both historic and current.
I cannot verbalize in this space the spiritual impact of experiencing the history of each and every stop on our Coptic tour. I was frequently overwhelmed with emotion from the impact of, for instance, standing at the entrance to the cave where the Holy Family lived for 3 months. Our guide knew every minute detail of each site, from a religious--Islamic, Jewish, and Christian--architectural, cultural, geological, political, and historical perspective. We received so much more information and attention than we ever imagined would be included in a tour!! It was obvious from observation of individuals in other concurrent group tours that what we were experiencing was a deeper, richer exposure in every aspect.
Following the tour, we were delivered to our hotel, and our guide accompanied us to the hotel lobby, waiting to verify that everything was as we expected and that we were comfortable and satisfied. We had the same guide for the tours we booked for the following two days. This made for an even more pleasant trip as we felt as though we were traveling with a local friend, not a new stranger every day! We LOVED this tour.
