You will be met by our private Egyptologist English speaking guide at your hotel to accompany you by air conditioned car to visit Islamic Cairo. It's one of the world’s oldest Islamic cities and aLso known as the City of a 1000 minarets. The densest and oldest concentration of historic masjeds, madrasas, mausoleums and fountains, historic landmarks and brilliantly detailed doors, alleyways and courtyards from a bygone era. —some dating to the 10th century—comprise Islamic Cairo.

Walking tours are the best way to explore the narrow streets of Islamic Cairo and its dense concentration of medieval buildings.  

There are four types of minaret styles related to different periods of Egyptian history: Othmany, Abbasi, Fatimy and Mamluki. Othmany (Ottoman) are pointy and cylindrical, Abbasi (Abbasid) are made of different layers - usually starting on a square base then cylindrical middle then polygonal top. Fatimy (Fatimid) are thin and tall and Mamluki (Mamluk) have little 'balconies' while maintaining the octagonal shape.

Al Hakim Mosque is one of the most known Islamic landmarks in the whole of Egypt, Qalawun complex, the Sabil-Kuttab of Abdel-Rahman Katkhud, mosque, al-Aqmar and Bayt Al-Suhaymi at al-Darb al-Asfar
