Egypt is a fascinating country; everywhere you go you will experience something new. Prepare yourself for lots of history, varied culture, traditions and the chance to meet lots of local people along the way.
I’ve worked as a tour leader for Explore since 2005, having previously worked as a tour guide in Cairo and the Red Sea. Before that, I was studying at the faculty of tourism and hotels. Outside of work I am a big fan of football, especially the English premier league.
My advice for travelling to Egypt is to see the real face of Egypt, not the one portrayed in the books! Be ready to be a traveller, not a normal tourist.
