This is a new company and I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Ragab is the owner and our guide. He actually worked with an archaeologist on a dig in Luxor and he definitely knows what he's talking about. Hatshepsut temple was amazing, and the tombs are something you just have to see. Just for awareness, pictures are not allowed in the tombs - disappointing but understandable. The entire trip was amazing.
