What will we talk to you about?

We will tell you about people and places of historic and modern day interest.  Places, buildings and objects mean nothing to me without the stories behind their builders, owners or users.  We continually strive to research and incorporate more and more human stories about the people who lived in our historic places into our tours.

What will we NOT do?

Our tours are not “boot camps” where you are bored to death with dates and uninteresting historic facts for a couple hours and then spend the rest of the day in a factory shop.  We will NOT take you shopping during designated tour time.  But, don’t worry – you will have plenty time for shopping outside tour times if you want.

If Egypt is your dream trip or on your “bucket list” I advise early booking as the number of places on each trip is limited to 15.  Ask for full details

All the trips and packages I offer are based on my own personal experience – not because I believe I know what is best for everyone else, but because I do believe everyone deserves a quality and hassle free holiday.  So, while I don’t personally know you, I do presume you would like a trip where

  • you know the full cost of what you are buying
  • that has no hidden extras
  • gives you a real feel for the country and customs
  • helps you avoid the tourist traps.
  • is hassle free
  • eliminates the need for decision making on subjects you have little or no knowledge what your choices may entail.
