Part of Our Limited Edition Tours Series…


Egypt TourEgypt has one of the longest histories of any country, tracing its heritage along the Nile Delta back to the 6th–4th millennia BCE. Considered a cradle of civilization, ancient Egypt witnessed some of the earliest developments of writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion, and central government. Iconic monuments such as the Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx, as well as the ruins of Karnak, Temple of Hatshepsut, Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Memphis, and Thebes, contribute to Egypt’s long and rich cultural heritage and remain an integral part of its national identity. The country has endured and often assimilated, various foreign influences, including Greek, Persian, Roman, Arab, Ottoman, Turkish, and Nubian. Egypt served as an early and important center of Christianity, but today is a predominantly Muslim country, albeit with a significant Christian minority.

Notable Women in Egyptian History

Christy Destremau in EgyptWhile we also often associate Egyptian history with notable Pharaohs such as Ramses II, Tutankhamun (King Tut), Akhenaten, and Khufu, several women, Hatshepsut, Cleopatra, and Nefertari Meritmut, as well as Goddess Hathor, merit notable mentions in Egyptian history. Regarded by Egyptologists as one of the most successful pharaohs, reigning longer than any other woman of an indigenous Egyptian dynasty, Hatshepsut reigned as the second historically confirmed female pharaoh. Her rise to power was noteworthy, thanks to her bloodline, education, and understanding of religion. With an impeccable bloodline as the daughter, sister, and wife of a king, Hatshepsut’s understanding of religion allowed her to establish herself as God’s Wife of Amun. While the queen of Egypt, Cleopatra actively influenced Roman politics at a crucial period and was especially known for her relationships with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. She came to represent, as did no other woman of antiquity, the prototype of the romantic “femme fatale”. The Egyptian queen, Nefertari Meritmut, secured her place as the first of the principal royal wives of Ramses the Great. And, Hathor, one of the most important and complex goddesses of ancient Egypt was known as the mother goddess who created and maintained all life on earth. She was also worshipped as the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, sky, fertility, music, dance, and protector of women.

Hela’s Bio …

Egypt TourBorn in Massachusetts to Egyptian parents, I was 10 1/2 years old when we returned to live in Egypt. I arrived with a very sober outlook on life here until I got my taste of freedom when I took a taxi for the first time in Cairo and began to discover the city. I learned over the years that there was so much more to Cairo than the pyramids. I explored a lot of the different neighborhoods and fell in love with the architecture, the dynamic of the bustling streets, and the history ever-present throughout the city. After university, I moved to El Gouna, along the Red Sea, to work as a development manager. But Cairo kept calling me back, and every time I returned, I would discover and venture into a new neighborhood. With each returning visit, I began to learn more about the city’s history. Deeply exploring Cairo lit a fire in my belly to become a guide. When friends and family came to visit, I shared more than what you see on the surface walking through the city. I wanted everyone to see the side of Cairo that so few know about and that I had uncovered over the years.

But my future as a guide in Egypt would get put on hold when I met a French winemaker in El Gouna, married him, and moved to France. Instead of Egypt, I started a guiding business in Bordeaux, and built my life around it; sharing the history of my adopted city with travelers from around the world. In my heart, however, I knew I would one day come back to Egypt to guide in some capacity. Becoming the first accredited Egyptian woman guide in the Bordeaux region laid the groundwork to establish me as an independent and reputable businesswoman in France. Once this happened, I felt the time had arrived to seize the opportunity to rekindle my dream of guiding in my home country.

Today, I split my time between my homes in France and Egypt. Come winter, I trade my trench coat and rain boots, for a cotton gallabeyah: destination the sun and colors of Egypt. Invigorated by the kindness of the Nile, I open the doors to all the hidden facets of this ancient country. ​I invite you to live a unique experience of Egypt far from bustling masses of tourists; you will have unforgettable encounters in breathtaking places.

As a native Egyptian Arabic speaker with a deep knowledge of my country’s history, I love taking travelers by the hand to show them the diversity of Egypt. The country is Pharaonic, Coptic, and Islamic, but not only. With me, you will visit the tribes of Nubia where the people speak languages passed down from generation to generation. I love taking travelers deep into the local culture to demystify the long-standing generalizations stigmatizing my country. Learning about the connection with ancient Egyptian mythology throughout my tours transforms each day into something new and magical. We’re visiting people and places welcomed as friends thanks to my established reputation granting me exclusive access. From shopping in the Suks, swimming in salt lakes, exploring the Pyramids and historic sites like Karnak and Dendera to venturing into the desert and cruising on the Nile, my goal is for people to gain a genuine understanding of Egypt and to have a positive experience.

A WORD FROM Our Guests:

“This was my third trip in the same number of years with Christy and Off the Beaten Path. While on her trips you can tell how much effort there is on the off season to make every single week perfect. From the pick up at the train station to the teary goodbye at the airport, everything is perfectly planned and executed. The hotel in St. Remy is magical, and the tour guides Philippe and David are exceptional. If you are considering a trip with OTBP, go for it and come home with new friends, a love of Provence and a longing to return as soon as you can!” — Beth Bower

“We had an excellent tour with Christie and her crew in the Loire valley. We did things that only a true insider would have access to-dinner at a Michelin chefs house, helping/learning to cook at a highly rated restaurant in their kitchen. This was in addition to seeing the sights and touring the castles. A truly unique experience that is off the beaten path. We will use her again when going back to France.” — Karen Berner

“France Off the Beaten Path was so great the first time that I had to return to Off The Beaten Path for a repeat visit. Everyone that works for Christy is excellent and full of life. Loved their tours to Van Gough, Dinner at Catherine’s home, picnic in the woods, wineries – And the only max at 16. So we really got to know each other. Highly recommend.” — Lauren

“Outstanding tour of truly beautiful areas of Provence by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who spoke perfect English. Gorgeous accomodation, very special restaurant experiences, and an effort made to avoid arriving at tourist hotspots with the hordes made it all the more enjoyable.” — Geoff & Lorrene Evans
