Egypt Itinerary Critique

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are considering a trip to Egypt in November, not certain yet but leaning that way.

Our interest is in seeing the antiquities, and we enjoy slow travel. By that we typically stay a minimum of 3 full days at one location before moving on, often longer, in order to minimize time spent in transit. In some cases this means skipping some famous locations altogether. Here is the outline of our preliminary itinerary:

- Fly to Cairo, transfer to hotel near Giza pyramids. We prefer to stay there rather than central Cairo.

- Spend 4 nights in this hotel. Tour Giza pyramids, Saqqara, Dahshur, perhaps Egyptian Museum.

- Drive to Bahariya Oasis in Western Desert, spend one night. Continue on to Farafa Oasis for a camel trek in Great Sand Sea. Trek concludes in Dakhla Oasis.

- Drive to Luxor (which is now closer than Cairo).

- Three nights in Luxor, tour TBD selected sights.

- Five night Nile Dahabeya cruise to Aswan.

- Fly to Cairo, one night near airport, fly home.

Feedback welcome. Thanks.
