Undoubtedly, if you are considering a vacation to Egypt, you probably have a lot of questions. Is hiring a guide warranted? Which locations ought you to go to? What should you pack? And last but not least, is it safe to travel to Egypt?
At the end of December 2019, we traveled to Egypt for 12 days. We traveled to Cairo, Giza, Luxor, Abydos and Dendera, Aswan, and Abu Simbel during this time. We drove from Luxor to Aswan along the Nile River instead of taking a cruise, which I shall discuss in this piece, for a variety of reasons. During our stay, we gained a great deal of knowledge, which we would like to share with you.

We have been inundated with emails concerning safety and what to anticipate from a trip to Egypt since we got home. We believe it would be worthwhile to write an article containing the detailed responses that Tim has been providing to all of your questions.

Where should you go?

Some of the most magnificent and ancient sites on earth may be found in Egypt. Yes, everyone has heard of the magnificent pyramids located on the Giza Plateau, but Egypt is much more than simply the pyramids. Saqqara and Dahshur’s pyramids are worth visiting during a day trip from Cairo because they are less well-known and more enjoyable. You can also take a day or two to explore Old Cairo, see the churches and mosques, and learn about Egyptian history at the Egyptian Museum.

Alexandria, with its location on the Mediterranean Sea, makes a nice day trip from Cairo.

In addition to seeing the magnificently ornamented tombs of the former Egyptian kings and queens, Luxor is home to the massive Karnak Temple and the Temple of Luxor. It would take days, indeed days, to see all of the tombs and temples on the West Bank. It’s among the biggest outdoor museums on the planet.
