“Cairo can be overwhelming, but this food tour was a breath of fresh air! Our guide, Ahmed, was funny, knowledgeable, and took us to hidden gems I’d never have found on my own. We tried everything from flaky fava bean falafel to kushari, a carb-tastic explosion of flavor. Ahmed even explained the cultural significance of each dish, making it more than just a meal – it was a journey into Egyptian life. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to skip the tourist traps and dive into the real Cairo.”

Our family had an absolutely delightful time on the Best Cairo Food Tour! The tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptian cuisine, and it really showed. We got to taste so many traditional dishes, from the mouthwatering koshary to the heavenly baklava. The highlight was definitely the Egyptian bread-making demonstration. It’s a must-do experience for any food-loving family visiting Cairo!

Let’s be honest, solo travel can be a bit intimidating, especially when it comes to food. You don’t want to be stuck wandering lost, trying to decipher menus in a foreign language. That’s why the Cairo Food Tour was a lifesaver for this solo traveler! I joined a small group of friendly folks, and we had a blast exploring the hidden culinary corners of the city. We tried things I never would’ve dared on my own – camel liver, anyone? (Surprisingly good, actually!) Our guide, Ahmed, was like a walking encyclopedia of Egyptian food. He knew all the best spots, the local customs, and even threw in some fun facts about the history of each dish. It was a solo adventure with a built-in community – delicious food, good vibes, and zero awkwardness. Cairo, you surprised me!

Our guide, Ahmed, was fantastic and introduced us to some of the most delicious Egyptian dishes I’ve ever tasted. From mouthwatering kebabs to the best falafel I’ve ever had, this tour was a true gastronomic delight. Plus, Ahmed’s knowledge of Egyptian culture and history added an extra layer of richness to our experience. I highly recommend the Cairo food tour to anyone visiting the city. It’s a must-do!

“Traveling with two young kids can be stressful, but this tour was a lifesaver! My kids are picky eaters, but our guide, Zeinab, was a magician with them. She turned every dish into an adventure, letting them touch, smell, and even help prepare some things. They devoured the falafel (miracles!), giggled over the gooey konafa, and even tried a sip of hibiscus tea (big win!). Zeinab also kept the adults entertained with her fascinating insights into Egyptian cuisine and family traditions. It was the perfect blend of education, fun, and deliciousness. We left with full bellies and happy hearts.”
