FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Everybody has different tastes, and while most people who travel to Egypt want to see as many ancient sites as they possibly can, others have a different agenda. Many people only want to relax on the Red Sea coast at Hurghada or at Sharm el Sheikh. Many also visit so that they can go SCUBA diving in the Red Sea coast. One of the great things about visiting the Land of the Pharaohs is that there are just so many Egypt tourist attractions to suit all tastes.
We obviously recommend visiting at least a few ancient monuments like the Giza Pyramids; Valley of Kings; Karnak Temple; the mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and definitely the rock-cut Abu Simbel temples. However, the most important thing of all is that you enjoy your trip to Egypt your way.

What to Pack for Egypt?

However, there are some items which we would certainly recommend. These include a comfortable pair of shoes; a wide-brimmed hat; sunglasses; a few lightweight cotton tops, and of course, some sunscreen lotion. It is also advisable to pack in at least one pair of trousers and a warm top because it can get quite cool in the evenings. Jordan gets even colder, so this is especially important for people who book combination Egypt and Jordan tours from USA.

Is It Safe To Visit Egypt?
Yes, Egypt is just as safe, if not safer than many other popular tourist destinations. However, we do recommend that visitors stay alert and aware of their surroundings in very busy touristy areas.
