FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Deciding which Egypt tourist attractions to visit during a vacation in the country can be a daunting task considering just how many attractions there are. If you want to visit breathtaking ancient monuments, then you should definitely visit the Giza Pyramid and the Sphinx in Cairo. You should also try to visit the Step Pyramid of Pharaoh Djozer which is a short distance outside of Cairo.
There are also several amazing ancient sites in and around Luxor, including Karnak Temple, Valley of Kings, and Hatshepsut Temple. The two rock-cut temples at Abu Simbel are also highly recommended even though it requires a bit of traveling reaching them. If time permits, you should also consider visiting one or more oases. This is a great way to experience a traditional desert lifestyle and unique culture.

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?
