What you'll do

At the early morning, I'll meet you up in Tahrir square to start our Cairo foodies adventure! Heading to one of the special spots for having breakfast just like Egyptians, and guys I mean it "just like Egyptians" so be ready for it! A mix of all Egyptian breakfast plates with special tastes will set you ready for the day! After making sure you're full to the brim, we'll have a nice walk through Cairo streets to see the beauty of its buildings and feel the history vibes around. Then, A cup of tea between the ancient walls of old Cairo will let you feel the magic and simplicity of the city. We will then have our lunch in one of the most authentic places that offer only one of the most traditional meals through out the whole country. Guys, this is my favorite place for this plate for more than 15 years and I'm sure it will be a memory for you rather than only a plate!. Their Traditional dessert then will finally pamper you to leave a smile on your face leaving that place!
We will resume our day with our bonus surprise trip to relax and enjoy the sunset together. We will spend around two hours of relaxation and meditation in one of your chosen destination. They are different. You choose one!
Finally we will take a deep dive in the Egyptian kitchen in one of the most famous and thrilling restaurants in Cairo. At the end, a traditional cup of juice will be a well said goodbye :)

I'm dedicated to exploring the infinite hidden gems of Cairo and helping others to explore them.
I do everything with a passion. Working as a geohysicist is one of my life passions, but I wanted to explore my insides more to find out that my real passion is connecting with people. During the last five years, through couchsurfing, I met more than 100 people from very different cultures, hosted more than 30 guests in my house ( some of them stayed for almost a month! ), and guided more than 50 either in person or by giving the instructions for letting them live the real Egyptian lifestyle. The common thing between all of them is that they came as strangers and left as friends.
If you are really looking forward live like an Egyptian for a day, this is exactly what I promise!

10/10 recommend this tour. Ahmed and Toka took us to some amazing off-the beaten track parts of Cairo where we not only got to experience delicious Egyptian cuisine but also got to see parts of old Cairo. We had 2 other travellers join our tour and it honestly felt like spending the day with close friends exploring and eating good food. Ahmed is not lying when he says come hungry - you will eat more than you probably ever have on this tour. The mountain view at the end of the day is understated in the tour description as this was one of the most incredible spots I have ever watched the sun set. As 2 women traveling alone we not only felt extremely safe, but also very relaxed. There is no concern if you have dietary restrictions as Ahmed will ensure the dishes selected fit to your needs. If you are looking to try authentic Egyptian food, see unique parts of Cairo that you otherwise wouldn’t on a regular tour, and enjoy interesting conversation this is the tour for you.

This was a once and a lifetime experience. I had an amazing time and met wonderful people. Even with me being vegetarian Ahmed was able to accommodate me. I felt safe the whole way. It was a nice comfortable pace to enjoy every detail of the day. It felt like I was out spending the day with friends. Be prepared to be stuffed.

하루종일 이집트 음식과 숨겨진 관광명소를 둘러보는 좋은 체험이다. 이집트의 대중교통을 체험할 수 있는 좋은 기회를 만들어 주며, 새로운 친구를 사귀기 알맞은 프로그램이다. 노상카페에서 이집트의 아침식사를 경험하였는데, 한국인의 입맛에 매우 잘 맞았다. 이후 방어탑을 방문하여 카이로 시내를 한눈에 둘러볼 수 있는 진귀한 경험을 하였으며, 이 모든 체험에 호스트가 동반하여 안전한 진행을 위해 힘썼다. 방어탑을 오르고 약간의 도보여행을 한 지친 여행객들을 위해 노상카페에서 음료수와 함께 한가로운 대화시간을 보냈으며 카이로에서 유명한 코샤리 레스토랑을 방문하였다. 코샤리 또한 한국인에 입맞에 잘 맞았으며 이후 비행기가 지나다니고 카이로의 석양을 볼 수 있는 언덕의 카페에서 어두워질 때까지 있었다. 기다리던 저녁식사시간은 이집트의 가족단위 손님이 방문하는 조용하고 분위기 있는 곳에서 맛있고 즐겁게 지냈다.

This was a fantastic experience. I am a massive foodie and have tried so many dishes around the world - this must have been one of my favourite culinary experience to date. The places Ahmed pick and the traditional Egyptian dishes to try were amazing. Excellent rating from me.

Ahmed did a great job of tailoring the tour to my interests. He was very personable and interesting to talk to. During the day, he took me to a variety of different foods/restaurants/cafés/locations that are less touristy but really encapsulate Cairo’s vibe. As a solo female traveller, I felt very comfortable and welcomed! I am genuinely very satisfied with this experience and would recommend it to anyone 😊

This was possibly the best tour and experience I have had in traveling to over 75 countries around the world!! Ahmed was an incredible host and guide to the real Cairo!! I cannot accurately express the incredible experience we had during the day!! Ahmed was patient, knowledgeable, thoughtful and extremely kind and considerate! The overwhelmingly great value for the price requested cannot be overstated! Three full unique and authentic meals at the best local food restaurants and cafes plus desserts was excellent and places I would go back to again on my next visit!!!! I cannot say enough about how considerate he was in our requests to divert the tour to personal needs and his service to us went far beyond anything someone could ask for in any tour!! If you want a real Cairo food experience along with some of the great cultural areas of the city, do not hesitate to take this full day tour, it is beyond what you call a tour it was a full day cultural experience!! Thank you Ahmed for such a great time in a city I have visited numerous times over the past 15 years, it was outstanding!!
