“All of the major attractions were included, Kudos, Great.
Could include a side excursion to the Suez Canal as you do to Alexandria.
More mention of the unsanitary conditions in Cairo. The toilets in the museum there were not at all sanitary.
The Sound & Light shows were not worth the money. They were sort of OK but at a lesser cost. An extensive review (critique) could be available.
More should be said about the temperature ranges across the country in your brochures. I do not recommend going to Egypt in June, July or August.”
“The sights were amazing but guides Ahmed who met us at airport and our last guide not go good. Ahmed spent a lot of time on his phone and when I told out last guide I felt sick from the heat he laughed! What a jerk, no tip for either.”
“Egypt was amazing! Although Ehab our tour director lied to us when we were forgot about yet again at the airport at 1am but this time had to pay for transportation to the hotel ourselves. After that I could not trust a single word he said, and it made the days we had to be with him miserable. But, I really really loved Egypt I liked our guide Mohammed although at some of the shops I felt like he and the shop people raised prices on us and then he would pocket some of the profit so I felt like I couldn't buy at the shops because we were getting played and I wish I didn't have this happen to us. Also trafalgar states there is no tipping on the cruise and everything was included. That was not the case. But the sites we visited, and what I witnessed thankfully makes all the bad good. I just won't ever be booking with this company. I feel like for the price it is not worth it. But please if you are reading this, GO to Egypt it's a must see! But book a different travel company!!”
Egypt, located in North East Africa, is one of the most popular African nations. You can marvel at the ancient pyramids of Giza, learn medieval history through the mummies, or visit the plenty churches and monasteries culminating from a rich Jewish and Christian heritage like the Saint Catherine's Monastery. Many people don't know that Egypt also offers great diving opportunities for the traveler interested in aquatic activities.
Visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, that provides an ideal start when learning about some Egyptian artifacts of antiquity.
Cairo in particular offers a wide variety of coffee shops. In fact, going to one is a great way to get acquainted with some of the locals.
Check out the Cairo Tower. Why wouldn't you want to eat dinner on the top of the tallest structure in Egypt?
Enjoy the nightlife. Egypt has integrated popular current western music surprisingly well into its clubs and bars. After enjoying some Trance, you're liable to hear a few Arabic tunes as well.
Go to the Haram District that offers a great variety of outdoor adventures such as horseback rides and tours.
Take a tour through the Nile River. Going to Eastern Africa, without at least seeing the longest river in the world, the Nile, would be nothing short of missing out.
While on a holiday in Cairo, Egypt's capital and one of its biggest cities, take precautions to keep your belongings safe. Pickpocketing, in particular, is a recurring crime. Best to leave your valuables at the hotel safe.
Drink bottled water. Egyptian tap water is not recommended for regular daily consumption.
Tourism offices can be the source of plenty of information for inquiring travelers.
