    Coptic Cairo
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    8 , 9 , 10 am any time you request us for hotel pick up,Be picked up from your hotel and start your tour with your guide to go visit about 5 churches that date back to the early Christian era. The Hanging Church, or the Church of the Virgin Mary, was built in the 9th-century to ‘hang’ high upon the walls of Babylon. The effect of this ‘hanging’ have now diminished significantly as ground levels have raised around the walls. Deeper into Coptic Cairo there are several other older churches, including the Church of St. Sergius, which dates from the 5th-century and was supposedly built upon the site of a crypt where the Holy Family (Jesus, Mary and Joseph) was sheltered during there time in Egypt. Even further back in time is Ben Ezra Synagogue. This is the oldest synagogue in Cairo, founded in the 9th-century on what is claimed to be either the site of the Temple of Jeremiah or the site where the pharaoh’s daughter found Moses among the reeds. End your tour here and get back to your hotel.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairo! I wanted to check out the religious areas of the city and the tour was very informative as well as beautiful. The mosque was very stunning. The old churches were equally as beautiful in different ways. I enjoyed the drive
