Aswan: Private Home-Cooked Meal with a Local Family

4. Aswan: Private Home-Cooked Meal with a Local Family

Imagine your entire village was moved from its ancestral lands because a dam was being constructed. This is the story of the Nubians in Southern Egypt, who were relocated in the 1960s to the area around Aswan city.  On this Aswan tour, you’ll have the opportunity to not only eat delicious home-cooked Nubian food, but also have the privilege of learning about the people, culture, history, and traditions of Aswan. You'll visit a Nubian family in their home and experience some traditional hospitality. As a guest, you’re welcome to ask as many questions as you like! Learn about their lives and culture, and about the different Nubian tribes living around Elephantine Island. Your home-cooked Aswan tour will take you on a stroll around Elephantine Island before settling in for a shared meal with a local family. The styles and colors of the homes in this community cannot be found anywhere else in Egypt, so you’ll want to keep your camera ready!  Then, after you've walked and explored, it’s time to eat! The types of dishes you’ll be offered are among the favorite delicacies for Nubians. You might get to sample dishes like Bird’s Tongue Soup (don’t worry, there are no tongues involved), or maybe some rice with vermicelli, oven-cooked chicken, Nile perch, and mixed vegetables. But no matter what’s on the menu, be aware that Nubians like to eat a lot — so be prepared and come hungry!

Fantastic trip, lots of travelling however our driver was lovely and stopped off along the way. We saw lots of temples and monuments and were very well educated! Our tour guides were both very helpful and the main event Abu Simbel was spectacular… it was worth the 9 hour trip there and back from Hurghada! Myself and my partner had a lovely 2 days whilst staying overnight in Aswan overlooking the River Nile. Thank you for a wonderful tour!

What an amazing experiance! The driver and guides did a fantastic job. The hotel and food provided were very good. Only downside, is it was ALOT of time driving. But it was worth it to cover both Luxor and Abu Simbel in two days.

Amazing trip!! Is little bit far but very nice because if you don’t have enough time is recommended.. El guía muy amable, habla muy bien el español.

Very great tour. I highly recommend to visit the Nubian village. Our guide was wonderful.
