FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Many people want to know which Egypt tourists attractions they should visit during their trip to Egypt. At the very least, we would recommend the Giza Pyramids, the Egyptian Museum, and the Khan el Khalili Bazaar if you are going to be spending some time in Cairo. We would also recommend visiting the Step Pyramid of Pharaoh Djozer at Saqqara which is a short drive from Cairo. This was the first pyramid ever built by the Ancient Egyptians.
Other not to be missed attractions include places like the Valley of Kings; Karnak Temple; the mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut; the Abu Simbel temples, and the incredibly well-preserved Temple of Horus at Edfu. Although it is possible to visit these sites by road, it is far better to visit them by way of a Nile River cruise.

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.
