Suggested Egypt itinerary

edited January 2009 in - North Africa
Hi - I want to go on vacation to Egypt in the spring, I have read up on but want some first hand advice from other people who have visited. Can you suggest an itinerary for Egypt. I have just over two weeks to tour the country and am keen to see more than just the touristy sights but do also want to see the pyramids, ride on a camel, etc. I have read that you can camp in the desert with the Bedouin tribes - or am I getting mixed up with Jordan??? All advice greatly appreciated Sx

    whatever your itinerary, make sure you get to the sinai where you can stay with bedouins and enjoy nature and a culture that is amazing.

    this is where we stayed. very highly recommended for an authentic bedouin experience:

    Dear SuzieJ,

    I am just going to tell you what i recomend...

    arrive in Cairo Airport, stay in cairo for 4 days, visit the pyramids, museums and Khan el Khalily.
    fly or take a bus to Sharm el Shiek (red sea) for like 5 days or more, this will be just amazing for realxing, diving and a great night life.
    Alexandria (Mediterranean Sea) a couple of days.
    then I would suggest a train to Luxor and cruise to Aswan where you would see lots and lots of the pharonic touristic areas and enjoy a cruise in the Nile.
    back home :)

    like this you would have coverd all Egypt, usually people do that in like 2 or 3 trips, but this is a tight/concentrated itinerary. would be a little costy, but again, it's worth 2 or 3 trips...
