FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
With so many Egypt tourist attractions to choose from, many visitors don’t know where to begin once they have finished visiting the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx on the outskirts of Cairo. This is one of the main reasons why so many travelers opt for package tour rather than trying to navigate Egypt’s countless atractions on their own. If you don’t want to book a tour package, you can still have a wonderful vacation, but you will need to plan it properly.
We would recommend spending a day or two in Cairo to see the pyramids, the Egyptian Museum, and maybe a few other sites such as the Khan el Khalili Bazaar. After Cairo, we would recommend heading to Luxor which is home to numerous sites, including Valley of the Kings, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, and many more. We would also definitely recommend a Nile River cruise from Luxor to Aswan or from Aswan to Luxor for even more wonderful sightseeing opportunities.
