Trip Report Pyramids, Tombs and Diving in 7 days

Jump to last reply

Its been a week since my 7 day trip to Egypt with my boyfriend, and I better write it all down lest i forget! The trip included 2-3 days in Cairo, 2 in Luxor and 2 in Hurghada. I think the amount of time i spent in each place was quite enough (though a bit more in Hurghada to relax would have been good too). This was the closest-to-perfect holiday i have ever had :)

Key highlights include: Pyramids (ofcourse, but only Giza), Village of the workers in Luxor (my personal favourite, even over Valley of the Kings), a hot air balloon ride over luxor west bank to see the sun rise, diving and snorkelling in the red sea!

Major takeaways: Get a good driver/guide for one day tripsfor the pyramids, one day for west bank. Local guides at the temples in Luxor/ Cairo museum are quite half hearted and not value for any money you may be able to bargain for - best to rely on a pre arranged guide, or just walk around with a book. Carry enough change for tipping (cant stress this one enough!!) Dont get stressed over touts :)
