My summary paragraph about
Ruth in my photo album is as follows:
"Her planning in detail; her dedication to each tour participant
having a special experience; her consistent support; her knowledge of
Egyptology and the sites; her socratic way of encouraging participants
to learn & read hieroglyphs & cartouches, identify the forms of
the gods, goddesses & pharaohs; her encouraging us to have a
spiritual & meditative experience; her emphasis on our being a group
& functioning as a group at certain times, but always giving choice
& achieving consensus; her lectures & orientation to Egyptology
& Egypt; her attention to managing the everyday details of touring;
her being the administrative manager at all times of our scheduling; her
commitment to arranging special experiences as part of the tour; her
good spirits at all times including singing songs to us in the morning;
her openness about herself as a person; her overall loving, caring
approach, being a Hathor type of person. A wonderful person who helped
us all have a once-in-a lifetime trip to Egypt."

overseas traveling. If I went back to Egypt again, I would go with Ruth

Egyptian Egyptologist Guide
for All One World's Egypt Tours
Ehab Mahmoud has been sharing his native Egypt
with guests from all over the world for the last 15 years. Delightful,
sunny and extremely knowledgeable, our travelers feel they have a family member
in Egypt at the end of these tours. With degrees in Egyptology, tour
guiding and tour operations, he brings a combination of skills that insure that
we are both well taken care of and well informed.
When we need some
special arrangements his typical reply is, "It is done!" When we
want to know details about Egyptology or Ancient Egypt, he is a happy to share
the depth of his knowledge. Want to share with him your own personal
theories? He would love to hear it.
A tour guide who is very much in demand, we are
pleased that Ehab Mahmoud makes our tours a priority. How lucky we are!
"Ehab did an excellent
job! Not only was he a constant source of
information about Egyptian antiquities, but he was so pleasant and
personable. With his good looks, commanding presence, and beautiful
speaking voice I just felt so special to have him as our very own guide."
Duane DeLorme, Georgia, USA
I know we have all told you this in one way or
another, but I feel moved to tell you again: There are no words that can
adequately express how grateful I am to whatever Divine Intelligence
caused me to find your website and ultimately go to Egypt with you. I feel
blessed that I attracted that opportunity – and am grateful to myself
for actually taking it when it showed up! And please tell Ehab how much I
appreciated his knowledge, kindness, and wisdom – what a great person he
would love to do another trip with you at some point – with all of the
rebuilding they are doing, there will be much more to see in a few years.

I wanted you to know what a wonderful tour you provided
for us... without you it would have been impossible to have the trip we
had. I feel you were such a buffer between us and some of the
harsher realities of life there. Thank you a million times for all
that you do, provide, and are!! I honestly know I had a trip of a
I can't say enough good things to others
about you and the trip. I speak your praises everywhere. Is there a
way I can help broaden that knowledge? I think you are so doing what
is in your heart and it shows, and I want to share your
riches with others...

Ruth, you must be fulfilling a sacred contract in this work you do, in
that you have a natural talent for knowing what people need, along with
the love and dedication to open them to the fulfillment, and the know-how
to set the stage for it to happen. Even unspoken needs seem to be picked
up by you...
The mechanics of the trip - well, there was no need for us to even think
of that. You did a magnificent job on that complicated task. Ehab
contributed greatly too. What a perfect gift...
Every full moon brings back to me the Egyptian moon over the pyramids and
the other-worldly nature of our caravan - the wind, the galloping
horses! Thanks to the goddess for that and to Ehab and to Ali and to
you! It wells up in me sometimes and passes through, and I say,
well, that was the full moon caravan that just passed through. Then I take
a few deep breaths and smile.
