Sipping tea at sunrise in front of the Great Pyramid of Cheops. My dream is to sip tea at sunrise on the top of the Great Pyramid Of Cheops!
Since the day I was born I have spent every day immersed in the history of my country. The great Egyptian pyramids felt like my backyard and the temples were my playground. My passion today is to show these wonders to the rest of the world. My decision to become a tour guide and tour leader came about through my desire to meet other people and learn about the rest of the world whilst teaching them about mine. I love my job and I love Egypt !
