    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.

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!
