    What to Expect
    You will be picked up by a professional guide, who will then drive you through the narrow lanes of Old Cairo to get to the southern fringes, where Coptic Cairo is located. There, you will experience the Circular Orthodox Church of Saint George, followed by the Hanging Church of the Virgin Mary, located on top of the water gate.

    Advancing through the alleyways of the old city, you'll get the chance to visit the Church of Saint Sergius and the Church of Santa Barbara, before continuing on to the Ben Ezra Synagogue and Saint Simon's Church, which is carved into Mokattam Hills.
