FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Every person has different tastes. Some want to go SCUBA diving in the Red Sea at Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada; some want to go trekking in the desert, while others just want to see as many ancient sites as possible. Regardless of what your tastes are, or how old you are, or even what your budget is, there are just so many Egypt tourist attractions to choose from.
Naturally, we always recommend visiting at least a few ancient sites, including places like the Giza Pyramids; the Valley of Kings; Karnak Temple complex; Hatshepsut Temple, and the two breathtaking rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel. A Nile River cruise also cannot be recommended highly enough. A cruise on the Nile is the ultimate way to enjoy the spirit of Ancient Egypt.

What to Pack for Egypt?
If you are looking for tips or some advice about what to pack for Egypt, our recommendation would be that you should try to avoid packing any unnecessary items. 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 book one of our Egypt and Jordan tours or 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. Don’t forget to also pack in some swimming trunks or a swim suite

Egypt is just as safe, if not safer than many other popular tourist destinations. Nonetheless, visitors should stay alert and aware of their surroundings in very busy touristy areas.
