I’m Vanessa Robbie, founder of Women’s Tours to Egypt. I’m a dedicated traveller and now resident of Egypt and my vision is to encourage women to visit this beautiful country and to experience firsthand the warmth, kindness and hospitality of the Egyptian people.
My passion for travel began back in 1990 when I went on holiday to New Zealand with my parents and my cousin. It was the first time I had been out of Australia and I loved it. One year later I left my home country of Australia to live in London. Travelling through Europe on an organised tour I was well and truly bitten by the travel bug. I loved seeing new places and experiencing new cultures, listening to the different accents, tasting different food, seeing beautiful buildings and breathtaking scenery – I couldn’t get enough, I wanted to keep travelling for the rest of my life – and so I have.
Since that first trip overseas I have been very fortunate to have visited many countries around the world but the one that made the biggest impact on my life was Egypt. My first visit was in 2005 with my best friend. We did a 7 day Nile cruise and I fell in love with this fascinating country. The sights, sounds and smells amazed me. I couldn’t wait to come back and see more of Egypt, so over the next few years I returned to explore other parts of the country. Every where I went in Egypt I had the same sense of belonging, a connection to the earth, a sense of ‘being home’ and that is what prompted me to make the move to live in Egypt permanently.
I love Egypt, its people, the ancient monuments, the simple way of life and I want to share that with other women. I understand that it’s not always easy to find a travel partner. Maybe your husband, partner, family member or friend can’t travel at the same time or don’t want to visit the same places or have the same interests as you do. Maybe you are like me and don’t like travelling on your own – I want to have shared experiences! So this is why I began Women’s Tours to Egypt. You can travel safely in a small group, with likeminded women and stress free!!
Join us on a journey of a lifetime and I hope after your tour you will love Egypt as much as I do.
