As before price initially was 200EGP (locals) & 15USD (Foreigners), but was able to negotiate it to have 50% discount since we are a group, and foreigners will pay same as locals so it's 100EGP ONLY for whomever

We will have the exception not to prepay rather pay on the spot, so you will pay 100EGP at time of event, but you have to register with him through whatsapp: Protected content your Name/email/Number before the event, it's a must and it close at the 1st of DEC, and you are welcome to bring with you anyone wish to join as long as you register him/her as well

The scintillating City of the Dead, anecdotally known as Al-Qarafa, is so full of life and amenities that if you sum, you realize it is more town than slum. We will be able to label the fabled vast necropolis and feast our eyes on monuments glorious from the City Victorious.

The lively City of the Dead is a treasure trove of masterpieces from almost all eras of Egyptian history. Walking there gives you an encyclopedic tour of Egyptian history. True to the vision of some of its founders, the City of the Dead has the power to entertain the mind and retain the body. Around 100,000 Cairenes live here amongst the dead. At the pinnacle of Islamic art, the monuments are architected to articulate the vision of the stellar dweller.

Picnic among the graves in the City Beyond the Walls! It is a kaleidoscope of culture.
