El Dahar (Hurghada Old Town) Tours

El Dahar (Hurghada Old Town)
North of Hurghada’s luxury resorts lies the Old Town of El Dahar, where you’ll find the city’s most authentic restaurants and shops. A highlight of the area is a traditional Egyptian souk that’s crammed with shops selling leather, copper, papyrus, spices, and shisha pipes.

The Basics
As the true heart of Hurghada, El Dahar is a staple of sightseeing tours, which typically combine the Old Town with a visit to the souk and the Church of St. Mary. To experience the city after dark, opt for a night tour, which typically take you through the illuminated bazaar; this can be combined with a traditional dinner and cultural show for a complete evening out. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • El Dahar is a must-visit for those who wish to get off the beaten tourist path and catch a glimpse of local life. 
  • Plan to spend around an hour shopping in the market and exploring the surrounding neighborhood. 
  • Bring along some local currency in small denominations in case you decide to purchase something.
  • Haggling is part of the local culture, so don’t be afraid to bargain.

How to Get There
Hurghada’s Old Town is north of the airport; it takes around 20 minutes to reach by road. The best way to get there is by taxi, while the rest of the Old Town itself is best explored on foot. 

When to Get There
The market itself is generally open from early morning until later in the evening, though individual stalls maintain their own hours. While the souk in El Dahar is busy throughout the day, the best time to visit is at night when temperatures have cooled and the atmosphere is lively with locals out for an evening stroll. 

Where to Shop in Hurghada
While El Dahar offers the most authentic local shopping experience in Hurghada, it’s not the only place to browse. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum is Senzo Mall, a shopping complex filled with international brands and a supermarket. You’ll find some souvenir shops along the Hurghada Marina, as well as a variety of shops with all sorts of items in the downtown area.
