Geoota Travel's professional and friendly tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby.
Your guide will escort you to visit the religious community area in Coptic Cairo to see the old churches as Christianity was born in Egypt's holy land. The religious family's journey in Egypt lasted three and a half to four years around our blessed country.
Roman pagans never wanted the new religion to spread, so they oppressed the growing Christian community here; the worst oppression was by emperor Trajan Decius, Septimius Severus, and ended with Diocletian, the savage killed a lot.
When Christianity became Egypt's official religion, the earliest churches were all built on Babylon's Roman fortress, an area known now as Coptic Old Cairo remains to tell the story.
You will see some churches the holy family hid at, like the Hanging Church, dating back to the 4th Century, the Church of Abu Serga, where Jesus is said to have taken refuge, and the Church of St. George.
There is a chance to visit the Coptic Museum, housing a good collection of that early Christian period artifacts, then Ben Ezra Jewish synagogue and finish your visit by the Mosque of Amr, the first Mosque built in Egypt.
Later, you will transfer back to your hotel.

FAQs

A. When and where does the tour start/end?
Your tour will start/conclude in your hotel as its private daily tour for approximately 04 hours from 08.00 AM till 01.00 PM.
B. Do you arrange the Museum photography?
Yes, this tour visits the Coptic Museum. However, for some clients who wish to use their camera inside the museum (against charges), many monuments have signs that say, "No Flash Photography," please obey these signs (you can be ejected from the site if you ignore the warning!). The very bright flash can cause severe damage to some of the ancient paintwork!
C. Do you arrange airport transfers?
Private airport transfers are when you and your travel companions order pre-booked transportation to your destination. Airport transfer fees usually start at about $10 per person one way. In other words, it is not in this tour fare; you can expect to pay at least an additional $20 per person for transportation to and from the airport. Typically, you are met at Cairo airport by a Geoota Travel driver & Guide holding signs with names outside of the arrival hall's baggage claim.
