FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
If you are busy planning a trip to Egypt, we would highly recommend looking through these amazing Egypt tourist attractions, and then make a list of those which you would really love to see. Many of the very best attractions also feature in most of our own Egypt tour packages, so browsing through some of our itineraries will give you a good idea of what the best attractions are.
Of course we would have to recommend the Giza Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, and also the Step Pyramid of Djozer, just a short distance from Cairo. Anyone visiting Egypt should also make a point of visiting Luxor for at least a day or two.

What to Pack for Egypt?
If you are looking for some advice about what to pack for Egypt, our recommendation would be that you should try to avoid packing any stuff which you most likely not need or use. For example, there is no need for you to pack in a lot of warm clothing. One pair of long pants and perhaps a lightweight jacket that you can wear in the evenings should be adequate. If you happen to book one of our Egypt and Jordan tours or any tour that includes overnighting in the desert, then a somewhat thicker jacket would be recommended.
Other essential items would include things like sunscreen lotion; a wide-brimmed hat; a pair of sunglasses; some lightweight cotton tops, and a comfortable pair of shoes. Don’t forget to also pack in some swim suitable swimwear.

Is It Safe To Visit Egypt?
Egypt is very safe for tourists. However, we do recommend against carrying unnecessary valuable around with you when you visit popular tourist attractions.

It is also a good idea to not get involved in political or religious debates, and under no circumstances should you insult any religion or religious institution.
