Egypt has been a popular holiday destination for European for years, but not so much for Americans. I’ve first visited Egypt in 2007 and revisited it again this year, exploring even more of it.
Due to a popular demand, I decided to run a small group trip to Egypt. Why? Because it’s a fascinating destination and totally safe!
I want to introduce everyone to the beauty of solo travels. I’ll take care of all arrangements for the trip and will be leading the tour together with some local guides. This isn’t a big bus tour where you’ll be chaperoned from one tourist attraction to the other, surrounded by a ton of other tourists. I want to show you more private and local way.
I hope you’ll experience the culture of Egypt, learn some history, meet friendly locals, eat traditional food, and most importantly – enjoy yourself. I’ll be also giving photography tips and teach photo editing.
