FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
While the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx may be the most famous Egypt tourist attractions, there are so many other magnificent ancient sites in the country as well. In fact, a lot of people who have visited Egypt feel that the giant rock-cut Abu Simbel temples are even more impressive than the pyramids. Many people also say that their visit to the Valley of Kings was better than their visit to the pyramids.
Karnak Temple complex on Luxor’s West Bank is another site not to be missed. Despite its poor state of preservation, it is Egypt’s second-most visited site after the pyramids at Giza. The mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut is another top contender, as is Luxor Temple and the Temple of Horus which is Egypt’s best-preserved ancient temple. No matter what, professionally guided Egypt tours from Brisbane are a great choice for a truly unforgettable vacation.

What to Pack for Egypt?
If you decide to book one of our Egypt tours from Brisbane, you may be curious about what to pack for Egypt. What to pack is very much a personal choice, but there are a few items which we feel are essential unless you would rather just buy them when you get to Egypt.
Essential items include a comfortable pair of shoes; a wide-brimmed hat; sunglasses; sunscreen lotion, and a few lightweight cotton tops. It is also advisable to pack in at least one pair of trousers and a warm top because certain parts of the country can get quite cool in the evenings.
Distance and Flight Time from Brisbane to Egypt
The shortest flight path from Brisbane Airport to Cairo International Airport in Egypt is approximately 14,389 kilometers, with estimated flight duration of approximately 17 hours and 25 minutes. However, at the time of writing, no airlines were operating direct non-stop flights between the two cities.

How to Obtain a Tourist Visa for Egypt?
Australians and those who will be traveling on an Australian passport can book Egypt tours from Brisbane without the need to visit an Egyptian embassy or consulate in Australia. Instead, they can apply online for an Egypt e-Visa before traveling to Egypt or they can get a Visa-on-Arrival at any international airport in Egypt.
Is It Safe To Visit Egypt?
Yes, Egypt is a very safe destination for tourists. However, as with other destinations, it is always a good idea to stay alert and aware of your surroundings, particularly in very busy areas and very touristy areas. Female travelers and those traveling alone should also try to avoid being out on foot in very quiet and/or poorly lit areas at night. The same safety precautions apply to Jordan in the event that you book one of our Egypt and Jordan combination tours.
