About the location

Egypt took me by surprise! It is both a magical and overwhelming place especially in Cairo. Culture shock is a real thing! But despite being "rough around the edges" Egypt is an amazing experience that should be on any avid traveler's bucket list. What do I wear that is culturally appropriate? What's the best way to see the city? What areas can I stay in that are safe? What tour companies are reputable? What is there to see and do besides the pyramids? I go over all this and much more in this guide to help you have the best experience possible and easiest time planning.

Guide Highlights

Top hotels for various price ranges and locations as well as a hostel recommendation for backpackers.

Favorite foodie spots and LOCAL experiences- even the opportunity to have a home cooked meal with locals.

Tours are a must in Egypt - not everything is easy to do on your own. So I recommend the best tour options and companies here.

Want to see more than Cairo? No problem- you should! I go over the best way to do so and a sample itinerary.

Guide Summary

Adventure, history, world wonders, foodie spots, authentic local experiences and much more. This guide focuses on Cairo but doesn't end there. Head to Alexandria or take a Nile river cruise from Luxor to Aswan. I go over all the basics from where to stay to what tours to book and more, making your planning process easy and streamlined.
