Needless to say, you cannto go to Egypt without visiting the Pyramids. Your Egypt tour would be incomplete if you did not take a trip to the pyramids there. For an even more memorable experience, try hiring horses to enjoy the pyramids rather than using camels at locations such as Gaza. There are also many other places of interest that would make an Egypt tour more complete, and these include visiting Alexandria, Memphis and Sakara, Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel. If you are the adventurous type, you may enjoy sailing up the Nile on a rented Falouka. That’s quite an adventure, but should be avoided during the summer months. During the simmer swarms of mosquitoes and extreme hot weather would make turn adventure into a miserable experience.

While on an Egypt tour, a trip down to one of Egypt’s most isolated settlements called the Siwa Oasis is also worth having on the itinerary as it is a big tourist draw, being far off the beaten track and it provides ample opportunity to have a wonderful adventure and experience at close hand the unique Siwan Berber culture. A Siwa Safari would also add excitement to your Egypt tour, and so too will shopping for the fine crafts made by the locals here.

Dhakla Oasis has hot springs along with camel rides that allow visitors to experience a ride over sand dunes. A Nile cruise, normally between Luxor and Aswan, may offer opportunity to experience the lovely sunsets. The Pearl of the Mediterranean, as Alexandria is known, still attracts the wealthy Cairenes and is a summer retreat worth visiting.
