Exclusive private Egypt tours with Amr Shamala

A desert camel rideTouring Egypt with me – Egyptologist and experienced Egyptian tour guide Amr Shamala is all about learning, exploring ancient sights, discovering new cultures and engaging in exciting activities. Whilst always remembering to have lots of fun.

It’s your exclusive tailor-made vacation… Let’s make your choices special…

As your experienced tour guide in Egypt, together we will plan your exclusive private Egypt vacation – perhaps just a few days sightseeing in Cairo, or Luxor; or maybe combining ancient sights with a desert safari, or scuba-diving in the Red Sea.

You will be accompanied by me as your exclusive Egyptologist and private tour guide throughout your vacation in Egypt. Your holiday will be flexible and I will try to cater for all specific requests, wherever possible, even when we’re enroute.

Combining Ancient Egyptian history with fun and adventure

We will discuss your itinerary – I’ll find out more about your interests and talk over what you want to see and do; agree a vacation budget and confirm your holiday dates. All you need to do is book your international flights to Egypt and as your exclusive Egyptian tour guide I will take care of everything else. I will book all of your accommodation, internal flights, transfers, private drivers, air-conditioned vehicles and sightseeing excursions – all inclusive to your holiday.

Alternatively, you can also book just part of your holiday or trip with me. Perhaps choosing sightseeing with an expert Egyptologist in Cairo, Luxor, Alexandria or Aswan. We will explore the historic sights together. I will take you on a journey through the land of the Pharaohs and beyond, retelling the story of an ancient culture and civilisation that will leave you spellbound.

As a qualified, professional scuba-diving instructor (CMAS International Certificate), together we can explore the Red Sea and the beautiful coastal resorts of Hurghada, Sharm el-Sheikh, or Marsa Alam. We can discover the beautiful coral reefs and ancient ports; as well as encounter the underwater life of exotic fish, elegant rays and friendly dolphins.

Above all it’s important that we have fun – you will experience the splendour of Egypt and learn about my culture and our Egyptian way of life in a way that you’ll always fondly remember.

Escorted student educational tours and trips

I am also experienced in leading educational tour groups for English speaking students from universities and colleges studying Ancient History, Egyptology and Archaeology. Having led both small and large groups I am able to offer my services as a local guide to aid teaching staff while in Egypt.

My knowledge of the local sights, places and people means that I can easily gain access to areas for tour groups. I will accompany the group throughout your entire tour and we can discuss the itinerary in detail to ensure the smooth running of your trips and excursions – ensuring that the whole group gets the most from their experience here in Egypt.
