Ms. Danielle's review for another Urban Adventures tour
“Alicia was fantastic! Super enthusiastic and we were able to try an awesome variety of food and drinks across the evening. The pace of the tour was excellent with plenty of time to leisurely enjoy our surroundings at each stop. Would definitely recommend to anyone travelling to Barcelona!”

Ms. Jenna's review for another Urban Adventures tour
“I really enjoyed the tour's guide. She was very nice and talkative. However the people on the tour turned their nose up at a lot of the food and did not eat very much. It was hard for me to enjoy it when the others were clearly not liking the food. I would suggest Urban Adventures make two tours - one for Vietnamese beginners to sample a few 'safer' dishes and then the street food tour for those that are a little more adventurous.”

ITINERARY

Share a real Egyptian meal with a local family on this private tasty Cairo tour. Visit a family home, chat with the women of the house, check out the ingredients in a typical local kitchen, and learn the recipes for favourite traditional Egyptian dishes. Think kushari, stuffed vegetables, fattah, molokhia, lentil soup, mossaqa, and that famous Egyptian rice with vermicelli. Who’s hungry?!

After feasting on delicious food and dessert, you’ll have time to relax, enjoy an Egyptian drink, and chat with family members to learn about Egypt’s culture and what life is like for women in the Middle East. This is your opportunity to ask everything you want to know about Egyptian life, so don’t be shy!

Your private Cairo food adventure will introduce you to true Egyptian hospitality, traditions, and even the local sense of humor as you sit back and sip a cup of Egypt’s famous mint tea or Egyptian coffee. If you’re feeling competitive, have a go at a game of Backgammon – but be warned, it’s hard to beat an Egyptian at their favorite game!

Once you’ve finished your evening and experienced the genuine warmth of this Egyptian family, you’ll bid ma’ salama (goodbye) to new friends and be taken back to your hotel. 

Following recent safety incidents we recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest information on travelling in Egypt before your departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all areas of your itinerary.
