Mostafa Lotfy
Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Mostafa Lotfy's love for Egypt and its history led him to a lifelong career in the tourism industry, where he started as a tour leader. He spent five years leading tours for several Polish tour operators in Egypt before starting his own travel company, FM Tours & Travel, in 2007. The company has been bringing explorers to Egypt to discover its wonders since then. 
In 2010, Mostafa began collaborating with Time of New Era travel company. Over the years, Mostafa has built strong relationships with Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and leading archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass. These relationships enabled him to design in-depth specialty archeological tours in Egypt for Archaeological Paths. 
His attention to detail and pursuit of excellence has made him a reputable source for luxury and custom tours, attracting high-profile clients, including Will Smith.
In 2017 Mostafa started Inside Egypt Travel Solutions with the vision of showing travelers the beauty he saw in Egypt and the richness of its culture through tailor-made luxury tours that combine this stunning country’s ancient and modern history.
