About the Founder
Hello! My name is Amgad Elmasry. I was born and raised in Luxor, Egypt. Most of my life has been spent sharing the great ancient and cultural wonders of my homeland with travelers from around the world. For generations in my family home in Luxor, a stone in the kitchen was used to grind down raw salt for the daily baking, and it was not realized until my great grandmother’s time that the stone was the top of a buried temple pillar. Our home sat above the now famous Luxor Temple! We Egyptians are proud of our history and heritage, and know that there is nothing else like the wonders of Pharaohs on earth. New discoveries are made every year for us to share with the world.
My family and I moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2013 and became citizens of our new home in 2019. But the sands of our homeland will never leave our blood. Before moving to America, I had gained experience in all areas of tourism and hospitality. After graduating high school in 1993, I worked as a cook, earning a diploma in culinary arts.

My true passion lies in helping guests explore remote and less accessible areas of Egypt, giving them the opportunity to meet and converse with local people in villages such as the Nubian Village at Aswan and the rural village on Banana Island in Luxor.

Additionally, I help them explore recent social and political history.
