Small Group Tours with a difference

Thanks to special permission from the Egyptian government this tour enjoys unparalleled access to many archaeological sites all over Egypt. Visit an active archaeological dig, explore the newly opened Grand Egyptian Museum* and stand in the Sphinx enclosure at Giza right between the paws of the ancient stone beast. Explore the opulent tomb of Nefertari, in the Valley of the Queens, and the immense tomb of Seti I, both recently the subject of years of ongoing renovations. Discover the extensive subterranean labyrinths of the Step-Pyramid of King Djoser and the Serapeum, the tomb of the Apis Bull at Saqqara and venture into the deserts of middle Egypt to explore the tombs of the Amarna period and Akhenaten’s lost city in the desert.


  • Unparalleled access to sites which only accept a low number of visitors or are off limits to the public completely such as the tombs of Nefertari & Seti I and the underground chambers of the Step Pyramid.
  • Discover some of Egyptology’s lesser-known marvels with visits to the early 4th dynasty pyramid of Meidum, the Seti I temple at Abydos, the tomb of the Apis Bull at Saqqara and the archaeological site of Amarna, Akhenaten’s city in the desert
  • Visit an active archaeological dig at Heirakonpolis, Egypt’s first unified capital and the site of history’s first zoo.
  • Safari into the dunes surrounding the Fayoum to see the fossils of whale bones in the desert, explore the beautiful streets of Tunis village; considered one of the most beautiful in Egypt and pay a visit to the enigma of the archaeological site of Tanis which contains statues that date back to before the city was founded.
  • Stay in traditional and historic hotels throughout, as well as locally boutique hotels and lodges on this archaeology trip to rival all others

What people are saying about Inverted Atlas

“We would follow Kristina anywhere”

Kristina (trip leader) gave us that authentic sense that we had become part of the landscape and that stepping out of our comfort zones we had renewed our delight in the variety of what life has to offer; it may only come once as recent events have proven. Kristina, now with her new travel company, and her professional staff have the acumen and the enthusiasm to make it happen, to take the worry out of travel but not the personal accomplishment that comes with doing the extraordinary.

“We had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs!”

I was fortunate enough to take a 7 week trip along the Silk Road from Beijing to Istanbul. The knowledge and coordination required to manage this successfully is huge. Our Tour Leader, Kristina, certainly came up with the goods. Transport across 8 countries without missing a train or bus. Even when our bus broke down on the way to the station, she had the presence of mind to commandeer a local bus for us so we wouldn’t miss our train!  She co-ordinated seamless border crossings in some of the most remote and challenging environments, and hotel check-ins throughout were a breeze. She managed to balance her responsibility for the safety of the group with our freedom for independent exploration.

“Completely blew every other travel experience I’d had out of the water.”

Key highlights for me were floating in the Dead Sea (a strange but incredible experience), standing on a stage that Socrates (Socrates!) himself spoke at and just absorbing the history, and finally, the evening when Kristina (trip leader) convinced a local shop owner to open up late at night so a few of us could do some shopping privately before we left the town – something that only she could do because of her rapport with the locals! Her knowledge of the different towns and cities we visited, as well as her understanding of the history at each place made this a magical trip of a lifetime.
