What you'll do

Like the English archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the treasures of the Pharaoh, King Tut in Luxor in 1922, you will discover the NON TOURISTY image of Egypt with your Egyptian family.

✅ You will experience the local Egyptian life at our home ( BEIT EL ELLA, the family home ) like a member family.

✅ I & my wife will start our experience by showing you the daily Egyptian breakfast (Favs beans , FUUL) and how to eat it with our Baladi bread .

✅ You will see how to prepare and brew your Turkish coffee on an old alcohol burner.

✅ It is cool to share some Egyptian cultural aspects such a the speedy delivery basket to get your stuff from downstairs and why the Egyptians don't use the paper toilets !

✅ You will learn how to write out your name and the names of your beloved ones in Arabic .

Our online experience is:
✅ Great for groups
✅ Great for team-building

For anyone who is interested in a day life of the everyday egyptian - this is a must-do! The demonstrations were really fun to watch and well explained and Ahmed and Shorouk were always eager to answer questions. This was a beautiful experience filled with an authentic Egyptian spirit. The hosts made us feel so welcome and even though we did it over zoom we could feel all the warmth and love they radiated. It felt like we were being welcomed into a friend’s home. We absolutely loved it! Don’t hesitate - sign up!

Taking this class with Ahmed and Shorouk was an enjoyable experience! They were so welcoming and excited to share their culture. It was interesting learning about their daily lives and a special treat to have received a virtual tour of their home. Thank you, Ahmed and Shorouk for your hospitality, breakfast recipe, Turkish coffee instruction and a photo of my name written in Arabic!

This was my second time meeting Ahmed and Shorouk and learning about Egypt from them. I highly recommend doing their online experience and it's very fun and insightful. Ahmed and Shorouk have a lot of passion for sharing their Egyptian culture and learning about other cultures.

This experience is totally worth infinity stars. I completely concur with every single glowing review on here. I wish there was a similar experience for all countries of the world because I have been thinking and talking about this one since I did it. You will want to plan a trip to Egypt just to meet them. Also, every detail of this dynamic is dazzling but most especially what you are going to learn about our numbering system is going to blow your mind! Thank you for opening up your home and heart to me! I hope to meet you one day!
