Hello! I am Mostafa El-Tayib.

I am 37 years old, Egyptian and I live in LuxorAs an operator of a rental agency and as a state licensed tourist guide with appropriate training, I have been working for many years in tourism. Ägypten - Mostafa El TayibApart from package holidays, our agency has specialized in offering guests from all over the world an individual, unforgettable holiday according to your wishes. I cordially invite you to experience the real Egypt. We offer you not only excursions to a centuries old culture, but our special events also insights into today’s Egypt and the life of the population and in one of the most beautiful landscapes. Sunsets over the Nile, nights at camp fire in the desert, all this will draw you in the spell

A few open Words to Egypt

In recent years, my country has left behind a turbulent past. The political upheavals between January 2011 and the election of our present President Abd al-Fattah as-Sisi in May 2014 have probably not passed to many Egyptian without changings.

What hit Egypt the most was the slump in the tourism sector and so many visitors to my website will probably ask themselves whether a holiday in Egypt is safe.

Egypt is the longest-existing state in the world, and the only country in the region to emerge from the period after the “Arab Spring” as a functioning state. The Egyptian national feeling is supported by pride and hospitality. Of course, there is no hundred percent security, just like in Spain, Belgium, France, Norway, Turkey, Sweden and Germany, but I can tell you that our country has, besides its hospitality, very important other and comprehensible reasons to hold the safety of the tourists in our country at the highest possible level. I can also tell you that I am very familiar with the situation in my country. In my hometown Luxor, you can move – regardless of whether you are a woman or a man – at any time of the day or night. Our excursions always take into account the highest possible safety. You can rely on the fact that if necessary, I will give you a reliable advice on the degree of security of your trip. In addition, excursions are officially announced with the appropriate decision of the Egyptian authorities and, if necessary, accompanied by security forces. Of course, all safety precautions are free of charge. I ask you not to conclude from my words that you can not move in Egypt without armed protection. The measures to be taken for your protection in my country can be found in Europe, just like or comparable.

It is understandable to me that in European news Egypt is often mentioned only when there are negative headlines. In my country too, positive news from other countries would be less frequently received than terrorist attacks on European christmas markets.

But this comprehensible one-sidedness distorts the picture. Since you are on my website, I am assuming that Egypt as a destination is of interest to you, especially since a holiday in my country is currently unbeatable cheap for Europeans. My request therefore:

Do not let the unresting times of our world pass through an unforgettable, fascinating and, in my opinion, a very safe holiday. Experience Egypt and give my country a chance to welcome you as a guest.
