About Fadel, Your Host
My name is Fadel (rhymes with ‘bottle’), and Egypt is my stomping grounds. I was born, raised and educated in Egypt, where I received a degree in Egyptian Archaeology.
Today, I live in Southern California with my wonderful wife Rogene of 20 years, who is a Southern California native.
I have enjoyed the pleasurable Los Angeles lifestyle for many years, and consider this to be my home.
However, I am still and will always be proud of my Egyptian heritage. And nothing pleases me more than to bring travelers to my home country. After leading more than 100 groups to and through Egypt, I am happy to report that everyone has returned home safely, over-fed, and filled with great stories of their fun adventures.
Please feel free to contact me as your convenience, and I will be more than happy to answer all of your questions about traveling to Egypt. But more than that, let me take you there personally.
