FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Mention Egypt tourist attractions to someone who has never been to Egypt before, and they immediately think of the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx. Mention the same thing to someone who has visited Egypt, and they immedately think of countless ancient sites. In fact, many people don’t consider the pyramids at Giza to be Egypt’s impressive tourist attraction.
If you want to be equally as impressed, or perhaps even more so, then you need to also visit places like the Valley of Kings with its 62 tombs, including the tomb of King Tut. The Abu Simbel temples are another site which every visitor should try to see, as is the Karnak Temple complex in Luxor, and the Temple of Horus in Edfu. These are all sites which we highly recommend, and therefor we include them in nearly all of our tours, including our Egypt and Jordan combined tours from USA.

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 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.
