About the tour

In Egypt, we love to eat a hearty breakfast! You can buy amazing Tahmayia (felafal) sandwiches from the street vendors, plus fuul (stewed fava beans) to take home and enjoy with fried eggs and salad! If you have ever wondered how to make this filling spread at home I would like to show you! I will take you through a step by step tutorial of how to prepare and make this amazing breakfast from the comfort of your own kitchen :-)

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Luxor with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Luxor. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

At last, a visual aid to making felafal. Lesley broke the methods down for us, right down to soaking the Fava beans for hours, and grinding the herbs and spices. A lot of work so it was useful to learn that this could be frozen ready for another meal. Her cats were delightful!
