The Islamic Cairo Tour will take you hundreds of years back when technology was less advanced, and life was less boring. El Darb el Ahmar is a district in the center of Cairo full of Islamic landmarks, including mosques, houses, palaces, mausoleums, collages, one of Cairo’s gates, and a section of the historic Cairo walls that formerly protected the city from invading armies. El Azhar Park, widely regarded as one of Cairo’s most attractive parks thanks to its stunning setting and commanding perspective of the city’s 1,000 minarets, is also home to a thriving handicrafts market and a selection of excellent dining options.
