Co budeš dělat

NOTE: This tour takes approx. 4-5 hours not 1 hour, and starts at 9 AM.

We will visit the Monastery of Saint Simon, also known as the Cave Church of Zabbaleen. It is located in the Mokattam Mountain, a short drive through the so called “Garbage City’ – a large population of garbage collectors or Zabbaleen that live there.

Several churches have been built into the caves found in Mokattam, First we visit, Saint Simon the Tanner Hall and St. Mark’s Church.

This huge cave was discovered in the year 1974. It was full of hundreds of tons of stones even up to the ceiling of the cave (which is 17 meters high from the ground), and was later prepared to contain two storeys: 1. The upper storey is the St. Simon the Tanner Hall, with seating capacity of 2000 people for spiritual meetings. The walls are decorated with many wonderful pictures engraved on the rocks representing scenarios from the Bible. 2. The lower storey is St. Mark’s Church, which was named after St. Mark the first preacher in Egyptian heritage.

Then we continue and visit the Cathedral of Virgin Mary and St. Simon the Tanner. The church was constructed around in the form of quarter circle to accommodate a few thousands of people.

Hi! My name is Mohamed.
Born and raised in Cairo, I'm a licensed tour guide of Egypt. I have a degree in History and a true passion for the Eternal City, its myths and legends.
I know Egypt and Cairo like the back of my hand! As an archeological, I would like to help you discover our beloved city, its secret stories and all you need to know about our history and culture.
I have created this unique and charming experience to immerse you in a city of 7000 years ago, pointing out the traces of the daily life of the past that are still visible all over around, but that only an "Archeological Eye" can read!

Kde budeš

The first reason visitors love our tour is that we take them off the well-known main roads to explore the hidden history of Old Town. We will visit the Monastery of Saint Simon "the Cave Church of Zabbaleen" & the Cathedral of Virgin Mary and St. Simon the Tanner. I'm Egyptologist so i have access to new discovery sites. I have access to Local community.

I really enjoyed this tour and would definitely do it again. If you are interested in history revolving around Coptic Christian Cairo this is definitely a good choice.

Jasmine met us at our apartment and we drove to Moqattam, to visit St. Simon’s Church. We had a great tour and then saw a zip lining feature that greatly interested my son. Jasmine kindly adjusted our schedule so my son could enjoy the games... it was a great day for everyone!

Best tour ever!! I had really limited time in Cairo but wanted to visit the highlights. our guide and our driver, Mohammed, waited patiently for me despite my flight being delayed. they helped me out with everything, from visiting the pyramids to shopping for some spice. I booked 3 day tours with them. I had a blast and am highly recommending the tours for those who are still hesitating.
