FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
Deciding on which Egypt tourist attractions to visit when you only have a limited amount of time can be quite challenging. This is one of the main reasons why so many people decide to book private guided package tours. Good quality tour packages should feature several of the top attractions, the same attractions we would recommend to anyone visiting Egypt for the first time.
Recommended attractions in Cairo would be the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx, and also the Egyptian Museum. In Aswan we would recommend the Abu Simbel Temples and Philae Temple. In Luxor we would recommend the Valley of the Kings; the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut; Karnak Temple complex, and also Luxor Temple. Last but not least, we would definitely also recommend Edfu Temple, considering that it is the best-preserved ancient cult temple in 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 in things which you most likely won’t need or use. What you choose to take with you is very much a personal matter, but there are a few things which we feel are essential. These would include things like a pair of sunglasses, some sunscreen lotion, a wide-brimmed hat, and some light loose-fitting clothes.
We would also recommend taking a comforable pair of shoes which are suitable for walking. Usually we will also recommend taking at least one outfit of formal clothing. Female travelers should also consider packing in a shawl or head scarf if they are likely to be visiting and mosques during their stay.
Distance and Flight Time from Tel Aviv to Egypt
The shortest flight distance from Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport to Cairo International Airport in Egypt is approximately 395 kilometers, with an estimated flight time of approximately one hour. These figures are based on direct flights from Tel Aviv to Cairo.
How to Obtain a Tourist Visa for Egypt?
Israeli citizens and/or those traveling an Israeli passport need to apply for an Egypt tourist visa at their nearest Egyptian embassy or consulate before traveling to Egypt. You can apply for your visa in person or you can use a visa agent.
Israeli citizens can however visit Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula without a visa for a period of up to 14 days. This is only applicable if you enter Egypt via the Taba border crossing.
Is It Safe To Visit Egypt?
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. We also recommend that female travelers and those traveling alone should avoid being out on foot late at night in very quiet and/or poorly lit areas.
