Single woman looking for Egypt/Petra travel tips

Hello – I’ve always wanted to see the Pyramids and Petra, and this year I want to actually make it happen. I’m a single woman who will likely be traveling alone, and solo travel has never bothered me elsewhere, but I’m a bit nervous about traveling alone as a woman to the Middle East. Can anyone provide recommendations? I’d be willing to go with a tour company as long as the group size is on the smaller side. Curating my own trip is also a possibility if I had a tour guide for portions of it. I’m generally pretty fearless but erring on the side of caution with this one.

I love history, photography, and food. I don’t like being super touristy, though I recognize these destinations are overrun – are there any times of year that are less congested?

Any advice is welcome! In the early stages of planning.
