Hailing from the Monufia Governorate in the northern part of Egypt, 28 year old tour guide Passant Nur El-Din has risen to become a social media sensation in less than 3 months.

The short Facebook videos that she records with her phone - 2 to 3 minute clips about touristic locations across Egypt - have garnered millions of views.   

Passant is a graduate from the Faculty Of Tourism and Hotels at the Helwan University, and has been working as a tour guide for about eight years. 

She told  Youm7 that some of her friends who are familiar with her passion for history, traveling and story telling have always encouraged her to make videos of the places she visits.

Passant has also launched her Youtube channel two weeks ago. 

Enjoy the tour!

The Pyramids of Giza

In the video above, Passant tells an interesting story about the missing nose of the famous Sphinx - the famed limestone statue of a mythical chimeric creature that possesses the body of a lion and the head of a human.


Passant takes us on a tour inside the temple of Luxor to see one of the oldest mosques in the city. 


Imagine walking down an old street between Nubian houses, only to come across an ancient Egyptian statue staring back at you. 


Here Passant shows us The Citadel of Qaitbay in Alexandria - a 15th-century defensive fortress built by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf al-Din Qa'it Bay on the Mediterranean sea coast. 

Ever wondered where Al Aydi Al Na3ema was shot? Passant has the answer!

The shooting of the 1964 Egyptian romantic comedy film Al-aydi Al-na3ema took place at this palace which was built in the early 20th century. 

The old palace also hosts the Mohamed Mahmoud Khalil Museum. 

The first ever tower built in Egypt

The Thabet-Thabet building is a skyscraper that overlooks the river Nile in the Cairo suburb of Garden City. 

The late Naoum Shebib is the architect, structural engineer and contractor for this landmark 31 story building. The building was completed in 1958 making it the first-ever skyscraper in Egypt.  

The skyscraper is popularly known to locals as the Belmont Building, as it once featured a large advertisement for Belmont cigarettes on its rooftop. 

She doesn't forget to thank her followers

The 28 year old has over one million followers in Egypt at the time of writing, and is looking forward to making videos in English as well.
