What to See In Egypt?
There are an almost infinite number of spectacular Egypt tour attractions to suite all tastes and budgets. If Ancient Egypt is your thing, then really need to visit the famous Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx in Cairo, as well as the Egyptian Museum. We would also recommend visiting the Step Pyramid at Saqqara which is only a short distance from Cairo. This was the first pyramid ever built by the Ancient Egyptians.
Many of Egypt’s most remarkable ancient sites are located on the banks on the River Nile between Aswan and Luxor. The best way to visit these sites is to do so as part of a Nile River cruise. This way you get to many of the very best sites, including places like Philae Temple; Hatshepsut Temple; Kom Ombo Temple; Edfu Temple; Valley of the Kings, and more.

What to Pack for Egypt?
If you are contemplating booking one of our Egypt tours from Montreal, you may be curious about what to pack for Egypt. What all to pack really all depends on personal choices and preferences. Nonetheless, there are a few items which we feel are important.
Important items include a comfortable pair of shoes; a wide-brimmed hat to shield one’s face from the sun; sunglasses; a good sunscreen lotion, and some lightweight cotton tops (preferably white). We also recommend packing in at least one pair of trousers and a warm top because the evenings can get quite cool.This is particularly true if you end up booking one of our Egypt and Jordan tours from Canada because the nights can get really cold in Jordan.
