Then continue your Tour to visit the Islamic Cairo tour  , such as  the Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan  which is a massive Mamluk era mosque located near the Citadel in Cairo. Its construction began 757 AH / 1356 CE with work ending three years later “without even a single day of inactivity.” At the time of construction the mosque was considered remarkable for its fantastic innovative architectural components and size. Commissioned by an-Nasir Hasan, a sultan of a short-term and relatively unimpressive profile, al-Maqrizi noted that within the mosque were several “construction marvels.” The mosque was, for example, designed to include the schools for all four of the Sunni schools of thought: Shafi, Maliki, Hanafi and Hanbali.

Then continue yourTour to visit  the El Rafaai Mosque  named in English the Royal Mosque, located in Cairo, Egypt, in Midan al Qala, adjacent to the Cairo Citadel. The building is located in front of the Mosque-Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, which dates from around 1361, and was architecturally conceived as a complement to the larger structure. This was part of a vast campaign by the 19th century rulers of Egypt to both associate themselves with the perceived glory of earlier periods in Egypt’s Islamic history and the modernization of the city. The mosque was built next to two large public squares and off several European-style avenues built around the same time.

Then visit  the Ibn Tulun Mosque is located in Cairo, Egypt. It is arguably the oldest mosque in the city that has survived in its original form, and it is the largest mosque in Cairo, in terms of mosque area.A land was commissioned by Ahmad Ibn Tulun, the Turkish Abbassid governor of Egypt of 868- 884 whose rule was that it is characterized by a de facto independence. The historian al-Maqrizi lists the mosque’s construction start date as 876 AD, and the mosque’s original inscription slab identifies the completion date as 265 AH, or 879 AD. Gebel Yashkur, “The Hill of Thanksgiving.” A local legend says that it is here that Noah’s ark came to rest after the flood, rather than on Mount Arafat.
Then, transfer to a local restaurant to have your lunch included in which to taste the Egyptian Meals Food is included in the price of the trip, but it is not Drinks

Then visit  the Al Azhar Mosque It is a mosque in Islamic Cairo in Egypt. Al-Muizz li-Din Allah of the Fatimid caliphate commissioned its construction for the newly established capital city in 970. Her name is generally thought to refer to the daughter of the prophet Muhammad Fatima, a revered figure in Islam who was given the title az -Zahra ‘(“the shining brilliance or one”). It was the first mosque established in Cairo, a city that has since earned the nickname “the city of a thousand minarets. Then the end result will be your tour with Khan Elkhalili Bazar, which was a market place for foreigners who come from many different places to sell their own products in it during the time of Islamic empires here in Egypt,but now turned into a tourist place that has a lot of shops that sell Egyptian souvenirs and also has a lot of cafes, where you can take a break in it after that beautiful tour that serves Shisha. Also this area has the most unique mosques like El Azhar mosque and Hussen mosque. Then you will be transferred back to Cairo International Airport for final departure.
