Learn about the startling engineering genius behind the sophisticated structure of Al-Khazna!
His offhand knowledge of Egyptian history, of pharaohs and antiquities,
of hieroglyphics and pyramids is astounding.
He can quote ancient Egyptian texts from memory.
In many ways he was our tour guide and history professor on top of everything else.
and was often able to entertain and educate us with interesting stories about Egypt’s history.
He is obviously passionate about the country, its history and culture.
to express himself in a manner that many native English speakers would find difficult to improve upon.
Ahmed Seddik as my companion made my adventure unforgettable.
He loves languages and speaks incredible English.
He talked continuously without notes of any kind during our tours of the temples at Saqqara,
the Pyramids and tombs in Giza, Islamic Cairo, and the City of the Dead--
not just providing fascinating and encyclopedic information, both historic and modern,
I have found his Egyptological knowledge prodigious.”
