Tarek leads tours for us in his home country of Egypt. He constantly receives great feedback from customers who travel with him.
I'm ''Tarek'', Explore leader in Egypt & they called me ''Tiro'', I graduated from the Faculty of Tourism in Cairo and I joined Explore in 2005. I like watching football, travelling and reading about history and i can't imagine myself doing different job. I'm looking forward to leading more tours with Explore as I'm enjoing my career and love to show the people how great is my country "EGYPT".
What is your favourite thing about life as an Explore leader?
My opinion about the best thing about the job is that I meet people & change their life through their experiences, also to reflect a good image about Egypt & be an embassador to my country.
What's the funniest this which has happend while on tour?
The funniest event happened to me, once in the train to Luxor i did ask the group a few minutes before we arrived to Luxor to check their cabins well and not leave any thing behind. Then i found myself talking to them on the platform without my main bag and the the train has already gone to Aswan. Luckily I got my bag back back late that night!
What's your favourite place you get to take your travelers?
The best place i think is ''ASWAN'' because it's very safe place and quite also people are very friendly and helpful.
Tell us about a custom in your home country?
One of our coustoms in Egypt what we called ''soboo'' which means celebrating the 7th day for the babies. Usually the couple invite the family and close frinds to their house making a big party including food and music and all the kids of the family should patricipate in the event specially by singing and dancing. The guests wish a good life for the baby and the parents then give some money as a gift for the baby.
