FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
There are literally hundreds of different Egypt tourist attractions to choose from. When you are only going to be in Egypt for a week or two, or perhaps even three, it is easy to miss out on some of the best attractions. This is why so many people prefer to book package tours. Reputable and well-established tour operators in Egypt know where all the best sites are, and which one impress visitors the most.
Attractions like the Giza Pyramids; Valley of Kings; Karnak Temple and the mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut are all highly recommended. If you find yourself in Aswan, then we would also highly recommend visiting the two rock-cut Abu Simbel temples. Another site which we cannot recommend highly enough is the Lost City of Petra. Although this site is located in Jordan rather than in Egypt, you can visit it by way of a day trip. All of our own Egypt and Jordan tours from the USA include a visit to this ancient rock-carved city.

What to Pack for Egypt?

For example, Egypt is a hot country, so there is no need for you to pack in a lot of warm clothing. It is however advisable to pack in at least one pair of long pants and perhaps a lightweight jacket that you can wear in the evenings if need be. Certain parts of the country can get quite cool in the evenings, and if you any tours that include camping it the desert, then some warm clothing is essential.
We also recommend that you pack in some sunscreen lotion; a wide-brimmed hat; a pair of sunglasses; some lightweight cotton tops, and a comfortable pair of shoes.
