Visit one of Egypt’s most unique urban landscapes on this private half-day tour of Manshiyat Nasser, nicknamed “Garbage City.” The sprawling settlement—home to 60,000 people, mainly Coptic Christians—is covered in heaps of collected waste materials. Learn about the lives of Cairo’s hardworking “Zabbaleen,” or trash pickers, who have toiled informally in service of the city for decades.
  • A half-day guided tour of Cairo’s “Garbage City”—Manshiyat Nasser
  • Learn how, without an official recycling system, the community handles waste from 20 million people
  • Private tours include front-door hotel pickup and drop-off, plus snacks and water
  • Skip the crowded tourist track and spend time in one of the city’s most unusual locations
