Essam Zeid


ESSAM ZEID was born and raised in Egypt in 1970. Studied business administration and a post graduate diploma for guidance. I have been enjoying working with tourists from all over the world. Start to be specials in pilgrim’s American tour for the last 15+ years… My passion is to link the history to the land and both to the Old Testament and the holy book. I live between Egypt and Chicago for the last five years and enjoy both of them equally. My favorite site in Egypt is every part of it, I still amazed with the pyramids every time I go there. But what I like the most is the magical city of Luxor… Where the history is all around. My spare time is where I spend it travels all over the world and I very much love to read and walk by the sea. Father of three gorgeous kids and live just for them.
