Whenever you come to Egypt make sure you enjoy this visit and show. Folkloric and artistic indeed. Whenever I had visiting friends I have taken them to this place and none of them regretted it; on the contrary. Highly recommended.

I used to visit the tanora show at wekalet el ghuri several times and every time it's totally great to see it. I really enjoy so much the show.

We did this a few nights back, totally amazing! So glad we did this, the booking and process is strange, no advance booking, and first in first served, so good luck with seating, still we went with our guide, who got us set on a platform on the side right at the front, despite arriving 40mins earlier with little seats...

A wonderful hidden gem just next to El Hussein, so you can easily find it. The show is amazing and one that you'll never forget.

I'll start with the negative. It was too loud. Everyone in my family thought so, and it did impair our enjoyment of the show. So, if you could bring some discrete ear plugs, or perhaps wear some snug fitting ear buds. Now, the positive. The show is hypnotic and culturally enlightening. The crowd is almost all Egyptian lending an authenticity... More

This was an experience! The performance is mesmerising on itself but I was lucky enough to be with someone who explained me the deep spiritual meaning behind the colourful swirls and beautiful music and chants, which made it even better. A representation of the neverending movement of the universe, the dance of planets and stars, the music of the spheres... More

Hey, if you are in cairo and want to attend an event show of tanoura and listen to oriental music. Then i recommend you this place. It is very cheap, don't take the private tours, just ask a local friend to go with you Enjoy
