"Published on Oct 26, 2012". It was like Mission Impossible: Egypt Fun Tours' mission was to show me around Cairo during my short 5 hour layover which was made even shorter because my plane arrived late and I waited in the wrong line when getting my immigration stamp (buy your immigration stamp first and then wait in passport control!).
Despite arriving late, my Egypt Fun Tour Guide, Mohammed, and his driver Atem (not sure if that is spelled right), picked me up quickly and took me on my tour of Islamic medieval Cairo & Khan El Khalili Bazaar. We passed through Modern Cairo "Heliopolis" , but I was more interested in the older parts of the city.
We had a short walking tour to the ancient city of Cairo to see its walls with their gates. Very impressive. We entered the gates and were immersed in the colorful Islamic street in Cairo where you see the ancient Islamic complexes,mosques,Madrassas (schools) and the very unique Islamic houses. I sampled Sugar Cane Juice, really delicious and not at all like the sugar cane juice I have had in Hawaii! We went through Khan El-Khalili bazaar,one of the oldest Bazaars in the world. At the end of the tour we went to have Egyptian tea (lovely tea with honey with mint) in El-Fishawy Cafe where we were treated by music at the next table. It was a lively and vibrant taste of the city; I can't wait to go back to Cairo to see more! I was so glad I decided to do the tour rather than sit in the airport for 5 hours! I was quickly and safely returned to the airport with plenty of time to go through security and find my gate.
I had found them on a Lonely Planet message board. Someone had mentioned they had used them for a tour and really liked them. My opinion: They are awesome! Definitely a good deal!
This video of my tour was of El Fishawy Cafe where I smoked shisha and drank tea while the next table played music and sang. Loved it!
