    We meet in Tahrir Square, the most famous in Egypt, next to the obelisk of King Ramses II, and I always wear a hat similar to that of archaeologists.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Fantastic street food tour withMohamed. A great guide and made the tour extremely informative. The places we ate at, off the tourist trail, were just what I was hoping for. Delicious food in authentic restaurants. I would highly recommend both the tour and especially Mohamed.

Highly recommend the food walk tour in Cairo with Mohammed. You will see a lot of night life in downtown and taste regular Egyptian food.

Mohammed definitely showed us Cairo at night and took us to some incredible little spots for local food that would have otherwise never been found. We had a great time learning about Cairo/Egypt and would highly recommend

Trying local food is for us a must do in all our visiting countries, so if you are like us, this is a must do! Mohammed bring us to all the best places and we really enjoyed his company. Be sure to not eat anything at least 6 hours before the tour as you will eat enough food for a few days worth!;p I highly recommend this tour with Mohammed !

Mohammed's Egyptian Food Tour was an absolute highlight of our time in Cairo and we'd recommend it as A MUST on your visit!! We enjoyed a fabulous evening of Egyptian dishes specifically curated by Mohammed, whose professional and personal experiences in tourism and Egyptian history are top notch. Local tips and suggestions to improve the rest of our stay in Cairo were free-flowing and he was more than happy to provide support via WhatsApp afterwards. Mohammed takes care and attention and leads with trustworthiness and passion. We already had another guide booked for Giza or else we might have insisted he take us around there too!
