Our Team in Egypt
Every member of our team is committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable experience. National Geographic experts—Egyptologists, archaeologists, and photographers—will join select Egypt expeditions to illuminate the hidden gems found in the Land of Pharaohs. Exploring in small groups, you’ll hear different perspectives each day of your voyage, and because there are no assigned groups you can gravitate toward the experts who share your interests and inspire your curiosity.
Our knowledgeable and passionate expedition team is complemented by our dedicated hotel team who strives to ensure that your time on board is as comfortable and rewarding as your time on shore.
