It was 2006 and one of my Staff asked if they could take a group tour Egypt in February 2007. Sure, why not, as I had no interest in Egypt at that stage.
We put together a small group tour and it sold out in no time. 15 passengers only, as it difficult trying to herd 30 or 40 people around the temples or across the streets.
3 months before the tour was scheduled to leave my Staff member got cold feet and didn’t think they would be able to lead a group tour. So it was put back onto me. I had no qualms about taking the tour as I had plenty of experience in Europe, Canada and the USA.
