In the morning our guide will pick up you from your Cairo hotel and we will go to an oriental cafe-shop to taste some traditional Egyptian drinks. In winter it is good to drink Turkish coffee or sahlab (hot milk with starch and nuts), warm helba drink is also very popular among locals, but traditional hot karkade drink is what usually foreigners choose. In a hot summer day it is very refreshing to drink in the morning a cup of fresh lemon juice or cold karkade. Muz bel laban simply known as banana with milk is also a good choice.
After breakfast let’s move to the pyramids and discover some ancient Egyptian monuments. We’ll visit the pyramids and sphinx, have a look inside workers tomb and wander around Sphinx’s valley temple. Now time to move back to Egyptian streets and find a shop of fresh juices.
Let’s have some authentic experience before we get our lunch in a local restaurant. We will stop with you at one fresh juice café, they are numerous in the streets of Cairo, so we will stop at a nice one to have the best juice experience ever. Only here you can try traditional Egyptian juice called “asir qasab” - fresh sugar cane juice, pure sugar into your cup. If you do not like sugary drinks try another famous juice cocktail prepared from seasonal fruits such as guava, strawberries, mango with some pieces of apple. Also fresh juices such as mango, strawberry, guava, orange, carrots and others are also available, you need just to choose from the variety of options. After lunch transfer to your hotel.
