Archaeological Guidance Program

The Archaeological Guidance Program is a new program developed in the Faculty of Archeology - Cairo University, which qualifies for work in the field of tourism guidance and in various fields of tourism and provides the student with the necessary skills and information that qualify him to work as a tourist guide. The program aims to prepare a guide who combines the archaeological culture with the skills of tourism guidance.

An able tourist guide is one of the components of the success of tourism in any country, as he is an ambassador for his country within his homeland, and is the interface that can play a role in which no one participates in introducing the country to what it possesses of the elements of success in tourism and culture, and there is no doubt that the success of the tourism industry requires a qualified guide And with a good amount of knowledge, culture and accurate knowledge of what he provides of a cognitive and cultural meal to the tourist, whether from the inside or outside.
