My family, including my 9 year old son, went to Egypt in December 2012. Erin Nell was one of the guides on our trip and the experience she gave us was second to none. Besides knowing her way around Egypt and the archaeological sites, she has a PhD in Archaeoastronomy. If you have ever had a desire to learn about the ancient egyptians from a person rather than a book, here is where you should look, Start at the Bedouin Castle in Bahariya, Egypt and then go on your adventures from there. We saw the Pyramids all around the Giza Plateau, saw the temples around Luxor, took a Nile cruise to see more temples, and went to an authentic Nubian village. We plan to go back and stay at the Castle, visit the Red Sea and let Erin and her staff show us around again.
