Full description

Explore Hurghada's lively district on this 5-hour tour. Discover the Mosque and experience the traditional Egyptian flair. Stroll through souks in the old town, explore local shops, and admire the fish market. Since the time of the pharaohs, Egyptians loved and respected the art of crafting, creating beautiful and important pieces for the living as well as the dead.

Their skills were passed down through the generations, from master to master. Throughout Egypt's history, through Graeco-Roman, Coptic, and Islamic Egypt, the art of crafting kept evolving. Old skills were preserved, and new ones were added to them, resulting in the wide array of crafts available nowadays all over Egypt.

These crafts became a major source of income for many Egyptian families As these ever valuable handcrafts are under threat of extinction, this project aims to secure them as a cultural wealth and also as a main source of income for some families.

A visit to Pharaonic Papyrus Museum is also included.

    We had a very interesting afternoon with Amgad. We were the only participants and we were always free to decide how long we wanted to stay in one place and whether we wanted to buy something. We were picked up on time and very well informed about the different stations. Amgad knew a lot about Egypt, was able to answer all our questions and was always very nice and friendly. We can highly recommend the tour.

    In summary, the tour was really great. The guide spoke German very well and was able to tell us a lot about Egypt and especially Hurghada. We were able to see a lot of the city that afternoon and got to know Hurghada from a different side. We would definitely book the tour again and heartily recommend it to everyone.
