What we do
We make holidays. Have been doing so since 1991 when we graduated from Faculty of Tourism & Hotel Managment in Cairo.
We have 2 sister companies, so do not be alarmed when you see the following two names; Gateway To Egypt & Great Wonders of Egypt.
This website is owned & managed by Great Wonders of Egypt.
We worked as tour guides / manages & Egyptologists for some the most famous in the industry. By 2005 we had it with traditional tourism and we thought we have pretty cool ideas. So we started Gateway To Egypt. Through the years we managed to create some cool Nile Adventures. Almost annually we come up with a new concept tour.
The Full Story
Gateway To Egypt for Tourism Marketing and Responsible Travel Management is involved in all forms of tourism. The Founders of the company each bring distinct individual expertise and background to the company, providing a unique mix of Egyptology, History, Travel & Tourism. We decided to make use of our travel experiences under one mission promoting and developing responsible tourism with no limits as all forms of tourism ( leisure or corporate ) should be responsible. We realized that this can be achieved by establishing a policy of cultural economic development that makes use of archaeological and cultural resources for alleviating poverty with monitoring the social and symbolic implications of such endeavors.
The first stage targeted the individual traveler. We were encouraged with the fact that we have lived in and traveled to most of the Arab & Middle East countries which gives us an insider’s view of these countries.
Since then we have one mission: Help travelers to fulfill their aims of their visit to Egypt and the Middle East through delving beyond the surface of these treasured places to explore the hidden riches unique to each. We believe that when the traveler uncovers behind-the-scenes culture, history, art, architecture, cuisine, and peoples of each locale, this would be the peak of their experience.
To ensure that we really serve the traveler we accompany them through every step of planning their trip and during their trip and help him unveil the splendors of these countries
Through out the years we have built an extensive network of resources in these countries with people, establishments and organizations who share with us the same vision. Our trusted resources allow us to offer the traveler access at private collections, museums, universities, galleries and finest cultural institutions. It also allowed us to gain the trust of the local communities of the various districts in these countries and gain their trust as their supporters and developers of their communities rather than be regarded as invaders of their valued varied heritage which allowed our travelers to break the cultural barrier and exchange cultural details with the communities they visit.
The second stage was expanding to corporate travel services and events planning and management. From the beginning Gateway To Egypt has maintained a unique commitment to provide the highest level of personalized service to all of it’s clients. This was supported by our long-standing relationships with hoteliers, tour operators, and tourism officials.We negotiate air, hotel and ground transportation contracts for our corporate and conference clients that match or surpass those of the mega-travel companies.
Gateway To Egypt has committed itself from the beginning to provide service, value and customer satisfaction second to none.
