We love to go to Wekalet El Ghouri especially to watch the Tannoura show that it's really one of a kind show! The place is very well maintained and displays the beauty of Egyptian architecture. The tannoura performance is an hour show: instruments solos and spiritual band singing and the other half of the show is the whirling dervishes dance! the show runs every Saturday/Monday/Wednesday at 7 PM and we have to be there minimum one hour ahead to buy the tickets (the sold out quickly). Highly recommended!

The performance was amazing. It consists traditional musical instrument and dances. One tip is you must be there early, the seats, especially those facing the stage directly, run out in very short time even in cold winter.

This was the favourite part of my Cairo visit. It was incredible, words don't do it justice. Breathtaking.

Wikala Al Ghouri (various spellings) is a 16th century building adjacent to Khan Al Khalili which now offers an atmospheric venue for the superb 20-strong Tanoura Sufi dance troupe which provides a lively and thoroughly engaging music/dance show for 75 minutes on three evenings each week. It is very popular so arrive at 6.30pm to buy tickets and grab a seat before the start at 7.30pm. Video recording is prohibited whilst photographs can be freely taken. Children and young teenagers are likely to become bored quickly so it may not be for them whilst the intricate hand movements on the musical instruments and the dancing and gyrations of the musicians will captivate those who relish a lively cultural experience. Non-Egyptians pay LE83 for the very enjoyable performance.
