Egypt is a fantastic destination! It is also not the easiest. Avoiding crowds requires booking a guide, hustlers will be out for your money, and it isn’t easy to navigate. But if you overcome those problems, the history and beauty of the North African country are worth every moment. Here you can find an overview of our experiences in Egypt.

For our recent 10-day trip to Egypt, we traveled the Nile, flew a hot air balloon, and explored everything we could think of in Cairo. We recommend planning ahead with the help of a good travel guide.
