What To Expect

Cairo Citadel
The Citadel of Cairo or Citadel of Saladin is a medieval Islamic-era fortification in Cairo, Egypt, built by Salah ad-Din (Saladin) and further developed by subsequent Egyptian rulers. It was the seat of government in Egypt and the residence of its rulers for nearly 700 years from the 13th to the 19th centuries. Its location on a promontory of the Mokattam hills near the center of Cairo commands a strategic position overlooking the city and dominating its skyline. At the time of its construction, it was among the most impressive and ambitious military fortification projects of its time. It is now a preserved historic site, including mosques and museums.

My favorite part of the tour was how informed our guides were, so much knowledge and explanations into what we were seeing and observing. I love the conversation and the adventurous stories of the great pyramids and the Kings, and Kingdoms. Isaac our tour guide was very attentive and made us feel so special, everything was amazing.

Nour was a great guide, and Hassan a wonderful driver. Nour pointed out a lot of interesting sites on the drive to the Citadel. She knew a lot of history about the country and the Citadel and explained a lot to us. It is a beautiful and richly historic sight that should not be missed.

The Citadel is really awesome (in the true sense of the word) and a sight that really should not be missed while in Cairo. The Mohammad Ali mosque (also called the Alabaster Mosque) is fabulous and the views from the hilltop are great. Nour gave us a wonderful tour, providing a lot of terrific history and stories along the way. She was punctual and the driver was very good. Really glad we went on this tour!
Excellent Tour
