Full Description Zabbalin City Tour:
During the excursion from Cairo, we will go to a city that is not on the map. Zabbalin is a city of professional scavengers.
The state does not regulate its activities in any way. It would be foolish to hinder too, who else would do such a dirty business? For ridiculous pennies, they take waste from all over Cairo and recycle 85% of it near or in their home.
The Zabbalin is populated mainly by Coptic Christians, Muslims do not do such dirty work.
First, you will see how the locals live and earn. The city is populated mainly by Copts. Copts are ancient Christians who believe that their beliefs originated during the life of Jesus Christ.
Do not forget to take memorable photos during the tour. Meanwhile, in the same area, there is a unique Christian church of St. Simon built in caves. It is the largest temple in the entire Middle East.
During the tour, you will see with your own eyes this magnificent creation of the ancestors of local residents.
