Devour your Way During your Stay

Qasr Ad Dobarah, Egypt

Experience hosted by Ahmed

  1. 4 hours
  2. Hosted in English and Arabic

What you'll do

We'll kick off by going to one of the local neighborhoods to try the most authentic Egyptian dish ever. Afterwards we'll go to one of the alcohol shops where you can buy a variety of local alcoholic drinks at their original price, not the x5 tourist stuff (they all taste like s***, but you feel the effect a lot quicker) then go stare at the void and the city lights from atop of the hill-- perhaps even catch the sunset if we start earlier--while having our drinks with us, smoke some hookah, listen to music and stories about the hidden gems of Cairo, all while being covered by a blanket of stars. We should be getting hungry again, so we'll head to a few other amazing local restaurants to fatten up more and end on a sweet note.

Kindly keep in mind that only the food is included. Also, there are a variety of cuisines & restaurants in different areas around Cairo. I'm pretty flexible based on your needs both in time & place.

Well, I'm an official fat-ass. I mean, foodie! :D Good thing I exercise like crazy to burn all those calories off. If you're tired from all the "fancy" restaurants that overcharge you for stuff and the quality isn't that good, if you want to try all the local cuisine in the non-posh neighborhoods - actually be a local for a day, or a meal... then you've got the right guy! The food ranges from beans and falafel to sushi, all with a local twist added to it. As for the drinks, well, we've got old-school pubs and "clubs" scattered around the city, belly dancers too. Have a beer, enjoy the art...

The tour was just amazing. I strongly recommend to start Cairo exploration with it. Ahmed makes it easy to feel the city vibes. We enjoyed the warm welcome from him so much! Couldn't be better!

Well worth a 5 star review. Ahmed was very thoughtful about what I liked and didn’t like to eat. We went to some fantastic places; he knows just where to go. Literally the best shawarma sandwich I’ve ever had. I especially loved the hibiscus drink! There was always more food that I could fit into my tummy! Ahmed is fun to be with and honestly we could have gone anywhere and had a blast. A wonderful tour not to be missed. 😁

Personally, I think my review won't do Ahmed's superb Cairo food tour any justice. You JUST GOTTA experience it yourself. You won't regret it! Or actually, you will regret it if you don't come with an empty stomach.... Hahaha!! Let the fun begin & live the Cairo experience that you won't expect and probably will not forget. 😉😄 Our tour actually went way over the intended schedule, since Ahmed & I were having such a good time and chatting our heads off. Good times fly.

Ahmed is the best!! Super fun and hilarious life stories. Best four hours of my week - food was amazing and my Egyptian colleague confirm that the place we went to was a local gem. Ahmed was also very flexible and tailored the experience to my time and wishes. Couldn’t recommend enough - if you want a great evening, Ahmed is your guy. P.S - come hungry. Very hungry. P.P.S - ask Ahmed to tell you the story of “my life as a sitcom”

Don't look any further, you have found your tour while visiting Egypt. Ahmed is awesome! My husband and I wanted a real local experience and this is exactly what Ahmed provides. On top of his knowledge about the history and culture, he is great company with lots of funny stories. He gets to know you and engages like you are old friends getting together for a great meal. He ordered a little bit of everything and we were blown away by the flavors and experience. The restaurant he takes you too is like no other, there is always a wait cause it's that GOOD! We left with full bellies and leftovers that turned into delicious late night snacks! After stuffing our faces and becoming "official fat asses" we walked it off along The Nile and chatted away. Afterwards we got some drinks and dessert on The Hill where all the locals go to hang out. We enjoyed some hookah and more great stories. This is the type of experience we wanted and it exceeded our expectations! Definitely 10/10 and would do it again! Thanks Ahmed!!!
