Visiting the El Mokkatm with Michael was awesome. He is very knowable about this place and gives you a wealth of knowledge about it. There wasnt a question I had that he couldnt answer, and he takes his profession very serious. Especially when he overhears people telling people false information you can see the frustration on his face. Thats someone you want giving you your tours. I also had the pleasure of having him a few times during my four day tour

The Mountain Cave Church was unbelievable! You have to see it in person because pictures can not do it justice. It was well worth the money. We were able to take pictures. Our tour guide Kh Mamdoh let us take our time for pictures and take in the beauty of this amazing church. Kh Mamdoh, also took pictures for us and sent us all the pictures he took with his camera phone. This church should be included in the 7 wonders of the world. Kh Mamdoh was very knowledgeable about the history of the church. Also, when we were finished Kh Mamdoh allowed us to stop at a bridge over the Nile River to take pictures and asked if there were any other place we would like to visit. I would highly recommend taking this tour because it is so worth it. Kh Mamdoh was an excellent tour guide.

Again my guide is very knowledgeable about this church. I am glad I came to this place on a last minute thought to include this in my itinerary, it touched me to learn some miracles happened here. This is one of the highlights in our trip to Cairo.
