Labna Origins

Labneh (also spelled lebni) is a Middle-Eastern “cheese” made by straining most of the liquid out of yogurt. What’s left is a super-rich, creamy and decadent-tasting spread with a slightly tangy flavor. Surprisngly, Labneh isn’t actually all that high in fat.

Labneh is similar to sour cream or Greek yogurt, but has a richer, more decadent texture. It is sometimes compared to cream cheese, although labneh is usually tangier and runnier than most brands of store bought cream cheese.

How to Serve Labna

  • Bake moist labneh quick bread
  • Make a vanilla labneh tart
  • Labneh can be used as a dip or spread for pita bread or other types of bread. Top with olive oil, salt and herbs or spices for more flavor. For breakfast, spread toast or bagels with labneh and jam.
  • Form the labneh into balls and marinate in a jar of olive oil and herbs
  • It can be used as a dip (or as an ingredient in a creamy dip, instead of sour cream or yogurt) for chips or raw veggies
  • Dollop labneh on top of spicy food for cool, creamy relief
  • Mix labneh with honey, maple syrup or brown sugar for a sweet topping on dessert
  • Eat labneh like yogurt, with fruit and granola

Group Information

What is the minimum number of people you will pick up?

There is no minimum restriction to book so singles and couples can book tours, but there is a minimum number of people needed to run tours effectively.

We do our best to make sure every tour runs, which sometimes means shuffling minimum numbers together so tours can operate.

We need to group together at least  4 people (minimum number shown on each tour) for it to operate.

Do you take parties like a 40th or 50th?

Yes. A day tour with your friends enjoying drinks and tasty food is one of the most enjoyable but hassle free ways to celebrate a birthday. We take care of the details and let us know if you would like something extra special too!

What size groups can you cater too?

Each tour vehicle contains passengers from multiple bookings until it is filled to the ‘maximum guest limit’ (shown on each tour). This limit keeps our group small so it’s fast and fun with premium access.

A tour will operate when a minimum of four seats are booked. If there are only four seats booked, great you will have the tour all to yourselves in one of our smaller vehicles. The more a tour fills up, the bigger the vehicle we use until our maximum guest limit for that tour is reached.

If you would like a completely private tour for two, or, have a larger group than the ‘maximum guest limit’ please contact us for options.

We can cater to larger groups by combining multiple vehicles for any tour.
