Indagare Tour: Markets


Visit the bustling market of Khan el-Khalili—not for the shopping, but for the atmosphere. Most of the shops in the labyrinthine souk sell the same tourist souvenirs: ceramics, copper ware, carpets, leather, gold jewelry and lots of cotton goods, from tablecloths to galabiyyas, or kaftans. For serious shoppers, the two stores worth seeking out are Atlas Silks and, across the street from it, Atlas Jewelry. Tip: Stop at the Naguib Mahfouz, which retains an antiquated atmosphere and serves reliably good coffee, snacks and lunch. Contact Indagare to arrange a tour.
