What to expect

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 to in the 1960s to the area around Aswan city. On this Aswan tour, you’ll have the opportunity not only to 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.
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 most 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, 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!
