Doing a little planning before heading off to Egypt is highly
recommended. This county is scattered with history dating back many
thousands of years. A traveler should think about what sites,
monuments, temples, or cities they would like to visit before
selecting a tour in Egypt. Finding the right traveling agency is
tricky. If you don’t get a good travel agency, it may put a damper
on your trip as you may not get what you expected.
Before looking into using an agency, it is best to contact friends or family that may have taken tours in Egypt. They may have recommendations of where to go and may be able to refer a reputable travel agency for you. Discuss what parts of their trip they enjoyed and what parts they did not enjoy. This country is filled with many things to do and it is not too difficult finding the right activity for you.
If no travel agency is referred, the next best step would be to search online. There are many travel agencies that specialize in tours within Egypt. Take notes of anything you feel unsure about, then call the agency for more information. Once a list has been collected of your top agencies, it’s time to research them online. A great place to start is “Yelp” or various forums online. Look through the comments and see what people are saying about these agencies. When you have chosen an agency, you can then make contact and begin mapping out your trip.
Finding the right place to visit can be just as daunting as finding
the right tour package. Though most travel agencies might have
“Egyptian tourist attractions” lined up for you to pick, it’s best
to check with them for pricing, availability, and time constraints.
Sit down with your agent and inform them of anything you’d like to
see, or any special interests within the country. Once the agent has
a better idea of what your interests are they can better tailor your
trip to meet those needs.
For example, if you are wanting to see the pyramids, the Cairo museum, and the sphinx, plan on spending a few days around Cairo as everything is generally in that area. If however, you wanted to see the Valley of the Kings, be prepared to add a few more days to your trip as the journey is not close to the capital; it’s roughly an eight hour trip away.
As mentioned above, knowing what things you want to see in Egypt is important. Some planning will be needed to ensure you get to visit the selected locations of your choice.
Cairo Hotels in Egypt are abundant. This is due to the country being bombarded
with millions of tourists yearly. Like with your travel agency, plan
on doing some research online before deciding to book any hotels in
Cairo, Egypt. Many sites online rate hotels between two to five
stars. Read through these profiles, people’s experiences, and the
friendliness of the staff before selecting any online discounted
If you are unsure about finding the right hotel, call your agency and have them give you some recommendations. Most hotels advertise vigorously with these agencies; therefore, this staff will know a great deal about the best and most popular hotels in the area and what may be better suited for you.
