    What to Expect
    Coptic and Islamic tour in Cairo is a great tour where you can know more about religion and Christianity in Egypt. Meet your Egyptologist who will take you to an interesting tour. Start your tour to visit the old Cairo where you can see many churches, especially the Hanging Church, which was built above the Roman Tower, as well as the Abu Serga Church, where you can explore the crypt that the holy family stayed inside it for 3 months, and Saint George Church, a roman orthodox church. The second part of the day will be exploring Islamic Cairo, where you can visit the first mosque in Egypt Amr Abn El As mosque, as well as the best mosque for Mohamed Ali Pash, called Alabaster Mosque, which is similar to the Blue Mosque in Turkey. After that you will proceed to the mosque of Ibn Tulun which is the oldest mosque stil intact in Egypt. Take your lunch in a local restaurant then you will be guided back to your hotel.
