I grew up here in these foothills, the home to my family over many generations.
Boyhood summers with my grandfather were spent playing around and climbing the pyramids. My family has acclaimed Arabian horse stables here as well, so the Sahara and the pyramids have always been the backdrop to all that I’ve loved in my life…family, horses, and the pyramids.
My family has a long history of service here too. My father is one of Cairo’s most renowned chefs, and my brothers, uncles and cousins all are also in the hospitality business.
But service for me meant more than just serving my guests of which I relish, but it is about serving my home, my community in telling its rich story in the best way, in sharing the heart of this place I’m blessed to call home.
In the tours and experiences I’ve created, it is my desire to show all the history, all the mystery and magic, but most importantly, the ribbon that runs through it all..its people, my neighbors who call this their home too.
So if you’re looking for the true heart and soul of Egypt in your holiday experience, look no further than Authentic Egypt & Pyramid Immersion Tours.
“Authentic” is our first name – and we mean it.
