Cairo Tour to DownTown, Opera House, and Cairo Tower
We will explore and experience the Khedival Cairo Tour and the downtown area on this exclusive trip, which was created by Khedive Ismael, the grandson of Mohamed Ali. The lovely section of Cairo downtown was created by European architects who were commissioned by Khedive Ismael to construct a magnificent European-looking region in honor of the inauguration of the Sues Canal in 1869. Visiting the Cairo Opera House is one of the highlights of this tour, as it allows you to appreciate the beauty of the Khedive Ismael palace, which was later transformed into the Cairo Opera House, as well as see the Cairo Tower and the majestic Nile River. Walking downtown is also a fascinating experience, as it allows you to observe young Egyptians shopping for clothes, leather shoes and bags, and branded electronics.
About Khedival Cairo
Khedivial Cairo, also known as Downtown Cairo or Wust al-Balad, is a district in Cairo, Egypt, located between historic Medieval Cairo and the Nile. It was officially named Khedival Cairo due to its rich architectural heritage from the era of Khedive Ismail, who commissioned French architects to design the area. Today, Khedival Cairo is a protected area of value and covers a larger area extending south to Sayida Zeinab, with many of its buildings considered protected. This area is a popular tourist destination due to its historical and cultural significance.
