  1. Andreas Chalkiadakis

    Dendera and abydos is a very difficult but rewarding tour. We had the opportunity to visit one of the first and latest temples rarely watched by tourists. The tour was quite successful thanks to the excellent guidance Hossam Rashwan who showed us secret passages and explained the hieroglyphs in a very thorough way. Through his effort we are enlightened in the political and religious aspects of ancient egypt. Like i said it was a difficult but very successful tour. Thank you very much Hossam.
