Full description
In the early morning, men collect the garbage from the roads, Their wives and children sort it by hand and store it inside their houses. Then they sell the recycled products – plastic bottles, metals and other valuable items – or create new materials from it." Some 25,000 mostly Coptic Christians inhabit Garbage City, a slum settlement at the base of Mokattam hills, southeast of central Cairo. The Zabbaleen, literally "garbage people," have been the city's informal trash collectors for decades. This is a small story of what you will learn and see in this untraditional tour with an exceptional visit to one of the very old church in the area accompanied by our very professional tour guide starting from your hotel front door and back.
