Itinerary

We pick you up at your hotel heading directly to Al Khoseir, where there are a lot to see: The Shaykh Al-Farran Mosque is the oldest mosque in El Quseir. When visiting El Quseir, you must certainly see this place. This mosque is in the old part of the town, which instantly transports you to a bygone era. When you enter the mosque, you are instantly greeted with carpeted floors and traditional carved wooden balconies that will catch your attention.

The Ottoman Castle, also known as the fort of El Quseir, was originally built by Sultan Selim I in 1517 in the center of the town. Nowadays, one can overlook the bazaars from the ramparts and check out the activities below and simply get a panoramic view of the town.

The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Martyr Barbara was established in 1920 as a Catholic church by the Italian phosphate mining company.

Next to the Ottoman castle, you can find local souks, shop in the friendliest atmosphere at the traditional bazaars that sell papyrus, spices, alabaster statues, souvenirs, t-shirts, jewelry and leather goods. A small detour through a desert tunnel will bring us to the old Ghost City and a nice lunch in a local restaurant.
