Benefit from their expertise—history, local customs, culture and more—and benefit from their passion to share the wonder of this incredible region. Enjoy their company; you’ll find them highly engaging and fun to share a drink or dinner with, as well as a walk.

Lindblad Expeditions is renowned for the quality of its expedition staff, and our Egyptian expedition team upholds this standard. The knowledge of our Egyptologists is virtually limitless. You will be edified and gratified by their expertise—and, equally importantly, by their graciousness and generosity of spirit. These experts truly want to share their passionate commitment to Egyptian culture, art, history and archaeology with you.

Our experts are with you exclusively throughout your stay in Egypt. The ratio of 1 Egyptologist to 21 guests ensures that you will have high-quality access, and a varied perspective. They’re learned docents who escort you to and through the high points, and they’re your travel companions—available to continue the conversation over drinks or over dinner. You’ll not only satisfy your curiosity about ancient Egypt, you’ll also gain insight into contemporary Egyptian life through casual conversations. Curious about issues in the region from social to political to religious? Feel free to ask, and count on informed, intelligent answers to all your questions. These guides make all the difference in the world between being a tourist and really understanding the history and meaning of what guests see.
