Sunday morning was a bustling time to visit Cave Church. We saw a part of the Egyptian culture we hadn’t seen on previous days since we went to the people.

Our tour guide shared a few details about Cairo enroute there. We drove through Garbage City which is located at the end of the city. Upon arrival, a local man from the church led us around and explained the history of the church. We were able to enter 3 of the 7 churches there.
The carvings are incredible.

Following this, we requested to walk through garbage city to get a feel for the life the people there live. Our tour guide, Hala, went out of her way to allow us this privilege.

I wasn’t sure what I’ll be seeing but this was such an adventure! A bit of alternative Cairo . Amira my guide told me about the garbage city which is fascinating. And then to visit the cave and the beautiful monastery - where we were met by Marina (she has lived in that part and was full of great info). It’s something different to do and a facet of the city I wouldn’t t have otherwise discovered.
As a solo female traveller I must say I felt safe and amongst friends - a big recommend from me

It was interesting one I liked it so so much I and my fiance went to Simon monastery with Hala , she was so cultured and informative tour guide ,she answered to all our questions and was so excited to explain the history of the monastery and the people habits in this area , it is strange community which they used to collect garbage from the city and store it in their houses then they sell it to all factories around to recycle it for making plastic tools , really it was interesting tour we enjoyed it much more than we expected , thank heaps hala and Mida the driver I wish to come back soon and do other tours with you .

We were picked up from our apartment, on time. The driver was Mida and the tour guide was Hala. She talked a little bit about Garbage City as we drove through it and told us a little about other tours available in Cairo and in Egypt. We weren't really interested in doing other tours, but want to keep the company on hand for potential assistance with other trips as they were much cheaper than any of the other companies I found and they gave us a price lower than what was advertised here on TripAdvisor.

St. Simon was not an ancient church or location. It was recently built and has an amusement park for children and adults, which was a surprise for us. We were concerned about disturbing the church services but we arrived around 11:30 AM and they have church at 7 AM, so it wasn't an issue. There were a lot of people there but not many were looking at the churches. A local Christian guide gave us a tour. Our guide told us it was free and we didn't have to pay him and then this guide also told us it was free and we didn't have to pay him anything but we could donated to the church if we wanted and get a receipt for that. It was nice to have a guide that wasn't just looking for money. Sometimes it was hard to understand him because of his accent, but most everything was clear and we were able to ask questions and clear up any confusion.

It was interesting to see the Ten Commandments in Arabic and all of the sculptures related to stories from the Bible. The guide invited us to come back to the church and talk with the priest if we were interested. We took pictures but I didn't see a souvenir shop. Maybe there was one and I missed it. The pictures on Google are much better than the ones I took, so I'll share those with my friends and family in addition to the ones I took.
