Small Group Home Cooked Cairo Tour Including Traditional Meal with a Local Family

    What to Expect
    Begin your 4-hour Egyptian culinary experience with convenient pickup at your Cairo hotel. Your small group of fellow travelers is limited to 12 people or fewer to retain an intimate atmosphere and allow for plenty of interaction with your guide and host family. Travel to a local family's home in Cairo, where you'll get a chance to chat with the women of the house as they prepare the meal. Learn about the setup of a typical local kitchen and check out the ingredients used in most Egyptian cuisine.
    Sit down for a hearty meal, including dishes such as Egyptian rice with vermicelli, mossaqa, lentil soup, molokhia, fattah, stuffed vegetables, and kushari. After your stomach is full, sit back and chat with the family over dessert and an Egyptian drink, such as mint tea or Egyptian coffee. If you're feeling brave, challenge one of your hosts to a game of Backgammon, a favorite local pastime. 
    After your 4-hour experience, you'll be dropped back at your Cairo hotel.
