FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What to See In Egypt?
For anyone who has never traveled to Egypt before, a visit to the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx is an absolute must. They are, after all, the most famous and most visited of all Egypt tourist attractions. We are often asked if visitors are allowed inside any of the pyramids. The answer is yes, but the truth is, there is not much to see inside them other than empty chambers and plenty of stairs. You will also need to buy additional tickets.
Some of the tombs in the Valley of Kings are also open to visitors, and going inside some of those is far more rewarding than going inside the pyramids at Giza. Of course, we also highly recommend a Nile River cruise. Apart from the cruise itself which is a wonderful experience, you will also get to enjoy several tours and excursions to several top attractions, including the Valley of Kings, Karnak Temple, Temple of Horus and quite a few more. Considering that Egypt and Jordan are neighbors, we also recommend visiting the Lost City of Petra in Jordan. You can visit this site as part of a day trip from Egypt, or by booking any one of our Egypt and Jordan tours from the USA.

What to Pack for Egypt?

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.

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. Female travelers and those traveling alone should also try to avoid being out on foot at night in very quiet and/or poorly lit areas.
