FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Sites such as the Giza Pyramids, Karnak Temple complex and the Abu Simbel Temples near Aswan are considered to among the very best Egypt tourist attractions, so we obviously recommend visiting these if you haven’t visited them already. Other ancient sites which we highly recommend are places like Philae Temple in Aswan; the Temple of Horus in Edfu, and of course, the Valley of Kings in Luxor.
It goes without saying that we also definitely recommend visiting the tomb of King Tutankhamen in the Valley of Kings. However, this requires proper planning if you want to see inside his tomb. If you need a break from all the sightseeing then a Sahara Desert tour is also a great option.
