Inner peace and harmony

In February 2018, I went for the first time to Luxor. It was a trip that had a profound impact. It was as if memories awoke of a life lived in deep inner peace, harmony and love. It was as if the ancient energies and force fields of Egypt were still alive and accessible to us.
Very quickly the idea was born to bring people back to Egypt in respect for the beauty, magic and power that is still there, with room for meditation and inner processes.
In Belgium, I work as an alternative therapist. It is my passion to bring peace into who you are. Not only in your mind, but also in your body. It is my power to heal what is hurt and to de-stress what is stressed. I also bring these qualities to our journeys.

Younes Azzam, our English speaking guide in Egypt

I grew up with an intuitive sense of ancient Egypt. This made me choose to start the studies for guide at the Luxor Egyptology institute and in 2015 I graduated as a tourguide. My hunger for knowledge remained and so I started the studies for Egyptologist. In December 2022, the time had come and I proudly received my master's degree in Egyptology. I would be happy to give you a taste of the atmosphere of ancient Egypt and provide extensive info on temples and tombs.

You can contact me as a private tour guide and together we will plan your entire trip. You can also come with your own group.

The approach of Rising Egypt

A trip with Rising Egypt is always a unique experience, whether you travel in a group or alone. 
Rising Egypt was born from the desire to bring people in touch with ancient Egypt, in deep respect for the beauty and power that is still there. 
No rush travel where you have at most half an hour per temple, but really taking the time to taste ancient Egypt at its deepest. 
The term "slow travel" is definitely appropriate here. The experience is more important than the photo! 
In addition to the well-known top sites, lesser-known gems are also regularly visited. 

We usually offer two group tours per year in a small group of between 5 and 10 people. 
The individual trips are together with Younes, our English speaking guide. 
From 5 persons up, I can accompany your trip myself.
