My wife and I just visited Egypt from the U.S. (October 2019). We really wanted to explore the mainstream, as well as, the lesser explored. We took this excursion to Dendera and Abydos and we were NOT disappointed. The colors were bright, the architecture unique and stories each temple tells (e.g. Dendera alignment with astrology), etc. were AMAZING! Neither was overly crowded, and due to leaving earlier (7AM) we seemed to regularly be just in front of the crowd for both - although typically a smaller crowd in general. Ali was our guide and was very knowledgeable and provided lots of great stories and information. We would definitely recommend him. Be aware that this does have some car time involved due to the distance and location. If you can tolerate it, definitely worth your time!
