We are very lucky as Father Maximos Al Anthony, who is an expert in the field has agreed to be our guide in all the visits.


Carpooling is recommended. If several persons require transportation from Heliopolis or Zamalek we will organize small buses at cost.


A contribution of L.E.30 per person will be appreciated to cover the cost of snacks. Any entrance fees will be paid by each visitor on the spot.


We recommend a respectful decent conservative attire appropriate to the religious sites.


Please express your intention to attend as soon as possible as we plan to have a maximum of 30 persons per group. Although we recommend doing the four days it is understandable that some people would not always be available at the set dates. Please make sure to notify us at least a week before each trip if you will not be able to attend.


For reservations or Clarifications please contact Mrs. Magda Kamel Tel # +201223150249 or e-mail us on coppticmus...@googlemail.com

Thank you,
