Since Nov 2007


London, United Kingdom

First visited Egypt (Giza, Cairo and Luxor) in 1993 and was completely captivated by the place and it's history. Since then I have returned more than 40 times. During these many trips, I have visited most of the main sites (some many times) from Alexandria to Abu Simbel and most places inbetween. I have done 11 different Nile cruises, so have sailed on many different boats and stayed in many different hotels (of various star ratings). My favourite places are the Giza complex (Giza pyramids) and the Valley of the Kings on the Westbank of the Nile, in Luxor. Due to this, in recent years, I have based all my visits (about 2 or 3 a year) in Luxor and spend most of the time doing 'off the beaten track' exploration in the Theban hills and Kings Valley area. Because of my specialized interest, I have undertaken an in-depth and on-going study of that areas Egyptology and Chronology as well as being as fluent as I can (obviously improving all the time) in Arabic.
