Ahmed and his family are such wonderful people and I am so glad I booked this experience. This is a must if you’re in Cairo and want to learn about true Egyptian culture and the food that they eat. The food is absolutely amazing and they went out of their way to make me feel like home. I made new friends and learned new things about Egyptian culture that I will never forget!

I cannot put into words how special and fantastic my experience with Ahmed and Shorouk was. They are the most genuine and friendly hosts I have ever met. My friend and I truly felt at home, and like we made some lifelong friends. I cannot recommend this experience enough. If you’re looking to be welcomed into, and become part of an Egyptian family, this is the experience for you. Thank you a million to both Ahmed and Shorouk!!

I so much enjoyed my evening with Ahmed, Shorouk and their family. They were so helpful in getting me to their home and so very welcoming when I arrived. The food was wonderful traditional food, and the conversation made me feel as if I had old friends in Egypt. I love travel for these authentic experiences as I had with them. I am grateful for the opportunity.

This was a very unique experience. Ofte I have been travelling and wanting to talk to locals. But that is often not possible which is a shame, since the locals also want to meet us, especially Egyptians feel this way. I am truly gratefull for Air-bnb to make this kind of meetings possible, but more so I am grateful for Ahmed and his family to open their home to me. It is a big thing to open your house to strangers. But I think they do it, because they themselves enjoy meeting people from other contries. The girls age 3 and 6 (I think) were also interested in the guest. I feel I connected with the whole family. And that was only possible because they opened not only their house but also their hearts. I learned alot about how Egyptians live and think. And the family was very helpful to assist me with anything I might need for the rest of my stay in Cairo. I would recommend this experience to anyone as the number one experience on a Cairo trip.
