What to See In Egypt?

Naturally, we are going to recommend the famous Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx. While you are in Cairo, you should also try to visit the Egyptian Museum and perhaps a few mosques. If time permits, we recommend visiting the Step Pyramid at Saqqara as well. This was the first pyramid built by the Ancient Egyptians.
A lot of Egypt’s top attractions are located in and between Luxor and Aswan. The best way to see the best of these is by way of a Nile River cruise. If you don’t want to book a cruise, then we would recommend a private 1-day tour in Luxor so you can visit the Valley of the Kings, Karnak Temple complex and Hatshepsut Temple. The rock-cut of Pharaoh Ramses and his wife at Abu Simbel is another must-see attraction.
