And Some of What Makes Our Tours Different

Traveling as a small group means that we can take very good care of our travelers!

American Tour Leader Ruth Shilling has hosted more than 70 tours of Egypt since her All One World Egypt Tours company began in 1999. Having personal relationships with people in Egypt makes our tours run smoothly, while at the same time, her understanding of the cultural differences gives our travelers a more pleasing experience. Her goal is to create the perfect, specialized tour experience for every one of her travelers. And that means YOU!
