Catherine in Alexandria

Our Guides

All our Guides are professional, trained and extremely knowledgeable about Ancient Egypt and todays Egypt.  To give you an idea of who our Egyptologists are, here are a few details of some:

Catherine pictured to the right, comes from the city of Luxor.  So as she says the thing to do there is become a Guide.  She grew up with some of Egypt’s wonders right next door, so its no wonder she is an expert on Ancient Egypt.   She is also very much a part of modern Egypt and its future.  Whilst she lives in Cairo now, just a stones throw from the Pyramids of course, she travels the country extensively and regularly.

Magdy George

Magdy George – an Egyptologist based in Luxor was quite simply born to be a expert in Egyptology. He was born right next to what has recently been excavated to uncover part of Luxor’s remarkable Avenue of the Sphinx’s. When in Luxor he will no doubt point out his home and where he was born.

As part of his Egyptology University studies he took time to research specifically the everyday lives, the society, pastimes, struggles and educational systems that existed in Ancient Egypt. He can explain how truly ahead of their time they were.

Having a wealth of knowledge about Egypt, like so many of our Guides he brings to life Ancient Egypt in his own, friendly style inviting conversation and questions. If you wish he will even do a special tutorial on Hieraglyphics which will be much enjoyed by all ages!
