As tourism slowly returns to Egypt, our Africa and Middle East team is pleased to welcome John Ghaly, an Egyptologist with over ten years of experience as an Egypt tour leader, guide, and organizer. A Cairo native, John began his career working with Sonesta Hotels in the beautiful Egyptian coastal city of Sharm El Sheikh. Not content with a career bound to hotels, he returned to Cairo to begin a career as a tour leader at Gazira Travel, one of Egypt’s most awarded travel agencies. Since then, he has gone on to a successful
freelance career, running guided tours throughout the country. John and his wife settled in Canada in 2012, and he is thrilled to bring his expertise to one of North America’s most trusted names in overseas travel.
Formerly one of Goway’s most popular Africa and the Middle East destinations, Egypt’s tourist-friendly image has taken a battering in recent years, due to political unrest. Those who have made the journey, however, have been able to do so in safety – enjoying the sights, history, and culture of this unique country, without the usual crowds.
It remains to be seen how long this situation will last, but those willing to book their Egypt trip before July 31, 2015 can enjoy savings of up to $950 per person on one of our most popular Egypt tour packages, the 10-day Classic Egypt.
