Stay away! Went with my 10 year old daughter thinking we would browse & possibility go to a historical coffee shop. Well is is not what happened . Just to get into the place your bag is check and your body scannned. From that moment it was like something from the twilight zone! Weird, freaky “people” everywhere forcing you to buy cheap junk. You can say no because they don’t listener rescpect. My10 year old daughter has creepy old men mouthing perverse things to her suggestively . A bunch of peodiphiles!! , My daughter had this even stuck in her head for days. Keep away,not worth it and nevr take your daughters here. Then there’s the smellls. Everyone smokes ,mixed in with car pollution,and even more incense on top of the stinky piss & defacated Stay Away and go to museum gift shop they have practically same thing’s in

If I could I would give it a 0!! WORST experience I have ever experienced! I went there for a nice shopping day. There are crappy people and crazy mean hustlers and I’m from New York City. I regret going there COMPLETELY! DO NOT bring kids.NEVER EVER bring kids here. It will, be worst then a hunted house. First of all; there was this one man who was mouthing things, staring with a crazy smile and mouthing stuff to my child. There was a Guy with NO legs sitting in the floor. There was people jumping out at you with EVERY turn. At the end one guy kept on trying to sell me stuff over and over. NO ONE respects when you say no. Easy to get lost as well! If you show any interest at all they will attack you with stuff. There was starving cats and dogs everywhere. Even the animals were Weird and crazy. There were piles poop and smell of urine coating everything. A hundred different cheap incense. When I heard the word bizarre I thought nice shops cool things family friendly NOT crazy psychos selling crap. One guy was selling twisty that he was petting himself with!! DO NOT GO!!! NOT FOR CHILDREN I’m not extracting or making this up this is the TRUTH.

The place is so vintage with the Egyptian local flavor, many shops for authentic Egyptian gifts and funny people, very good for buying souvenirs, taking photos and walking around old Cairo .♡.

Both times the taxi dropped us off was in front of where you might find Mohammed and everyone there knows him and can call him for you if you don’t see him immediately! Just look forward a tall man with a shaved head and super friendly man with a delightful charm pleased to get you the best deals! We were lucky enough to be spotted and cared for by the tall Mohammed himself! He personally walked us through the Souk/Bazaar to enjoy meeting the people and visiting several shops with fantastic Egyptian goods that made our experience both fun and even educational! We touched authentic Egyptian cotton, smelled Egyptian oils that were so lovely, and even went upstairs to a room where we saw genuine papyrus with his own uncle treating us like special guests! We walked through vegetable stands, saw pita bread being made, shopped for beautiful scarves, and had lots of laughs walking through this large marketplace with an entertaining personal guide, Mohammed himself! We felt like we had our own VIP escort, teacher, safety, and friend all in one man; Mohammed! Ask the vendors for the tall “sweet-talking” Mohammed and you won’t regret it! And remember, he is working hard for you, so be sure to tip him well at the end- he deserves it!
