Hello , I am Rehab Samir.
I was born in Alexandria , the bride of the Mediterranean Sea .Then, my family moved to the capital “ Cairo” this great city with different style of life and history.I spent 4 years in the Archaeology college of Cairo university and have the BA degree , my interest about that field encourage me to accompany some of the famous Archeologist like Dr. Zahi Hawas in some of his Excavation.
It was a great experience that encouraged me for earning the Master and PHD in Egyptology , but I always had a dream since my childhood ,especially when I saw the great constructions like the pyramids, Temples and religious buildings, is knowing the story behind all of that and what is this mysterious energy which connect us with the past. When I earned my professional guiding certificate from ministry of Tourism in 2000. I decided to let my guest have the chance to live this experience.As to be as a tour guide you are not a teacher but as well you should have the sense of humor and to be sensitive with your guest needs and wants to make the tour more flexible and enjoyable.
Education : - BA degree in Archaeology, Cairo University, - PHD in Egyptology , Cairo University.
Languages : English
- 11 years of excperiance as an Egyptologist accampanying travelers while touring Egypt.
- Lecturer of Egyptology at the Tourism and Guidence Institution.
- After arriving in Luxor I met Mrs. Rehab Samir and Mr. Hassan Saadi, both very professional and excellent persons, with a great knowledge of Egypt and perfect communication in English and German. Mrs. Rehab Samir a very kind person, educated and with a hudge knowledge of every detail, was marvelous to make the tour with her and I felt very happy to met her. Mr. Saadi, excellent and respectful with a great knowledge of history and excellent english and german. In all tours that I have made with both I felt secure and was a great experience. I used to travell around many countries and made many tours during my whole life, but this time I felt a real difference and I would recommend Memphis to every person that go to Egypt.
- Memphis Tours gave us the private tour we wanted. Everywhere we went we had our own driver (Amr was great!), our own expert guides (Amr Yosry and Rehab Samir, both Egyptologists). They were always on time, knowledgeable, helpful, experienced and accommodating. We are very glad that we travelled throughout Egypt in this way as we would not have learned nearly as much about Egyptian life throughout the centuries without the guides. We highly recommend Memphis Tours!
