Discover the ancient winding city streets of Cairo, Egypt, the cradle of civilization on this photography tour of Islamic Cairo; visiting historic Fatimid era gateways to the old city as well as mosques, houses and palaces whilst passing through local markets.

Start your tour at 08.00am being picked up from your hotel in Cairo or Giza. It will be a memorable visit walking through the famous Souq of Khan al Khalili where vendors sell all kind of wares for your perusal. You will visit Cairo's two enduring ramparts: Bab Al-Nasr (Gate of Victory), Bab Al-Futuh (Gate of Conquests) as well as Al Moez Street which is regarded as an open air Islamic museum.

On top of the mosques, you will find a lot of towers with different styles and heights. The wooden lattice windows (arabesque) of the traditional mansions are worth taking many photos. Then, go through Cairo's only remaining medieval covered market and see the Mosque of Al Hakim.

Your photography walking tour ends at the famous coffee shop, called El Fishawy where you can have a local drink and take more photos. After a relaxing coffee you will be taken back to your hotel in Cairo.
