Ancient World Travel
I booked this trip with Ancient World Travel, a British company that specializes in Egypt and other archaeological sites in the Middle East. They were super responsive, and extremely helpful. All of their trips have a dedicated guide, a tour leader, and an expert on the sites of the trip.
The trip I booked was called The Missing Tombs. The tour is based on the sites found in the book, Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt, by Chris Naunton. The author was the expert for our trip, and he gave several great talks along the way.
It was a two week trip, starting in Cairo, and ending in Luxor. Many of the sites we visited are in Middle Egypt, where there are not many tourists. Which was really nice! I had such a great time on this trip, that I booked another tour for March with AWT.
