Marhaba and welcome to Luxor, the ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes and Aswan, the country's southernmost Pharaonic city! Meet Sherif Abd Elwahab and the WHL Egypt team, your local connection in Egypt, Land of the Pharaohs! Let WHL Egypt help you discover the ancient treasures of our home!
"We are looking forward to extending a warm welcome to you, your friends and family upon arrival in Egypt."
WHL Egypt was founded by Raed Elkabbany, whose zeal for travel and love of country led him to establish the company and assemble the passionate and service oriented team who make up WHL Egypt today. Raed spent a significant portion of his life in Egypt and quickly fell in love with the opportunities for travel in Egypt. Meeting and interacting with diverse people placed him on the path to become an Egyptologist tour guide, which he's taken up since 1987. The team is led by Sherif Abd Elwahab, an educator and expert in tourism since 1987, who works tirelessly to ensure your trip to Egypt will be an affordable, personalised and once in a lifetime experience.
"Our mission remains the same as it was when we started: to provide high-quality trips at the lowest price possible, while giving each and every guest personalised attention."
Our hallmark is our friendly and capable staff. Our employees are among the best and brightest in the industry and we consistently recruit qualified individuals and train them to offer our clients incredibly thoughtful service. Our Aswan and Luxor tour consultants are known for their attention to detail and rapid response to any client questions or concerns. All of our consultants are familiar with the packages we sell; every year we actually travel Egypt and we take pride in our expansive knowledge of the entire country.
We are able to offer our clients low prices and volume discounts because of our local relationships and high sales volume with hotels throughout Egypt. Hotels in Aswan and Luxor are able to give us exclusive pricing, and we pass the savings on to you. We use our own fleet of transportation and our own team members in all destinations. Each one of our teams is local to their destination and proud to share the local culture, traditions and people with guests.
"We consider joining whl.travel a step forward. To be a part of a group of companies and individuals from all over the world who share the same ethics, interests and passion for caring for our planet and the travel industry is electrifying and rewarding. It is a great opportunity to share the wealth of ideas, experiences and thoughts across the globe and discuss the ability of implementing them in different destinations."
Our main areas of interest in sustainable tourism are socio-economic and cultural. In each destination we train and employ local staff, use local suppliers for transportation among other services and donate a part of our profit to local organisations that help preserve Egyptian culture. We do our best to educate travellers about the customs in each local destination we visit in order to avoid any negative social impact. In bigger cities we care about the welfare of people by supporting local organisations and in Cairo we also support the welfare of animals.
"For three years WHL Egypt has been trying to promote sustainable tourism to protect tourist destinations, and to protect tourism as an industry. We focus on contributing to intercultural understanding by favouring businesses which conserve cultural heritage and traditional values. We also support local economies by participating in local businesses that are environmentally conscious whilst using the least possible amount of non-renewable resources."
Not so long ago, the Egyptian ministry of tourism began to consider developing and promoting ecotourism in Egypt. The government started to pay attention to the development and protection of the country's environment, natural resources and cultural heritage. Our main target is to sustain Egypt's ecotourism development along with the government.
"We at WHL Egypt have so much love of country and passion for the tourism industry. We find ourselves proud to share it with the world and naturally are committed to protect our heritage, history and culture and above all caring for the welfare of its people. We work as best we can to give back to the community whilst offering an one-of-a-kind experience for our travellers."
We hope that our travellers will experience and share our passion with us. Contact us for an unforgettable holiday in Egypt.
