Best time to visit Greece & Egypt
edited February 2009
- Greece and Cyprus
I'd like to combine a trip to Greece and Egypt within a 2-3 week period. What's the best time/best weather? Any suggestions for tours?
Both Egypt and Greece are large countries. It would take a week (at least) just to see the island of Crete
properly. Flights are readily available between Athens and Cairo.
Do you have priorities in terms of things that you "must see" or do you plan to go with the flow?
No problems in Greece (with the possible exception of some areas in the larger cities (Athens, Thessaloniki) but Egypt really is better done with a guide or organised tour. Some areas are not very tourist friendly at all and can be quite dangerous if you wander into them. Many resorts in Egypt are way down in the south of the country and a long way from the Pyramids and Aswan so check your geography if these are the sort of places you want to go to.
Weather is fine in both countries for most of the year. A good time to visit would be May/June or September when temperatures are a little lower.
Hi catwomansm ,
Iam Ereny hana Iam Egyptian tour operator so i can advice you about Egypt , Iam agree with Opapakias that both greek and Egypt are Large countaries But About his comment about Egypt i like to clear some points :
" Egypt really is better done with a guide or organised tour. "
Yes Egypt Is need to be guided because you need to listen to an egyptologist tour guide to explian the Egyptian pharonic temples" .
" Some areas are not very tourist friendly at all and can be quite dangerous if you wander into them. "
Me too recommanded the organized tour not because Egypt is not friendly .NO Just to SAFE your time at Egypt and lost it try to find the touristic places . Because Egypt have Many places to be visit as " Desert / cairo / Alexandria / Red sea cities / Aswan / Luxor / Abu simble " and to collect all this places at limited numbers of days it need travel agency to insure your trip time.
" Many resorts in Egypt are way down in the south of the country and a long way from the Pyramids and Aswan so check your geography if these are the sort of places you want to go to."
About the location of your resort or hotel that return back to your desire and sure you need to honest tour operator thell you which place he recommand for you.
