 A word from Waleed…

In my life as a tour guide I never thought that I’m better than any other tour guide even if I trust myself and my own personal skills – I believe I’m still learning every day from every single situation!  I do my best to create a family atmosphere in the tour that makes everyone feel like a real family.

After few days they call me the family man and sometimes they call me dad 🙂 

I do love what I’m doing I enjoy it all the time!!

A big thanks to Waleed from us for leading fantastic Egypt tours!
