Stop At: Cairo

Come for the Pyramids, stay for the food. Most are unaware that Egyptian food is one of the most interesting and nuanced in the region. Forget the tourist bazaar of Khan-el-Khalili where high-pressured sales is the name of the game. On our daily small-group Cairo food tour, you'll be lead around the backstreets of Old Cairo diving in and our of humble eateries that have been serving locals for generations. Come hungry because there are plenty of things to try along the way. Expect smoky charcoal-grilled koftas, pickled vegetables from a two century all factory, fateer pastries and piquant spiced kushari. There's fava bean falafels (quite different from their Middle-Eastern counterparts) and zesty aubergines, plump crisp-fried shrimps and freshly baked flat breads. There's coffee roasters and slow-cooked lamb among many more. This is more than just a food tour though. It's a cultural lesson, it's a journey through the backstreets of Old Cairo, places that you'd just never find alone.
