Some of our noted onsite tour speakers in Egypt:
Dr. Mostafa Waziry currently serves as General Director of Antiquities in Luxor. Among other responsibilities, he oversees site safety, conservation and restoration of the sites of Luxor, which include the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. He directs all excavations there and is currently overseeing work in King Tutankhamen’s tomb and the search for Queen Nefertiti.
Mr. Salah El Masekh currently serves as Chief Director of Excavations at Karnak. While currently excavating at the temple there, Mr. Masekh recently discovered several public Roman baths. He also recently uncovered a harbor in front of the temple where the barge of Ahmen used to dock. These significant discoveries reveal much about Karnak during the roman time.
