See the magic of the Pharaohs – AND the magic of modern Egypt!
…from the Sphinx who never speaks – to Tahrir Square where Egyptians spoke their minds for 18 days in 2011 and began forging a new future for their country.
The Egyptians who made the revolution are the same ones who protected the Egyptian Museum and the Alexandria Library – they will welcome you with open arms to share their country’s treasures, stories and culture. Travelers have been safely traveling to and from Egypt before, during and after the revolution. Make your plans to come to Egypt now!
I have traveled around the world – seeing more details than the astronauts who travel at 28,000 mile per hour and at 200 miles above the earth: they saw the world from up above, but I walked; they saw forests and oceans, while I saw cities, villages and people.
There is an English or Italian proverb that says:
the traveler must have a falcon’s eyes to see everything,
a donkey’s ears to hear everything,
a pig’s mouth to eat anything,
a camel’s back to carry anything and
a goat’s legs to keep on walking –
PLUS a lot of patience!
The benefit of traveling is going away… experiencing and learning and then yearning to come home…to tell your friends, family and co-workers what you saw and how you saw it.
And if you ask me to drop everything I am doing now and travel around the world anew - the same routes, the same feelings of fearing the unknown, I won’t hesitate, because there is nothing more compelling than traveling and reliving memories of travel, and nothing more amazing than sharing your experiences with people eager to listen.
Egyptbeat.com is a window on my native Egypt. I am offering uncommon tours where you will experience a unique and unforgettable journey. You will also be able to design your own tour or select our recommend tours:
- Visit the Pyramids of Giza with a photographer who can provide tips on the best locations and lighting for prize-winning photos
- Experience The Royal Club of Mohammed Aly on a private island on the Nile in Cairo, which houses the country’s most important individual collections of memorabilia, much of it dating from the period of Egypt’s “liberal experiment” (1923-1936). Learn about this period of the Egyptian history during a private tour with historian Maged Farag, Ph.D.
- Walk around Tahrir/Freedom Square with a guide who can knowledgably discuss all that happened – and is still happening there
- Taste an Egyptian dinner in the company of a select small group of Egyptian women and men and be free to discuss current political events - including the January 25, 2011 Egyptian revolution and the country’s political future
Now you may be all excited about coming to Egypt – but you are still asking, is it safe? Please use this link to the Department of State for the most recent update – and then allow me to help you plan the perfect, personalized adventure for you.
