We have just finished up on one of the most epic adventures we have ever done - two weeks exploring Egypt!
Since we were kids we had always dreamt of visiting this magical place. Learning about ancient Egypt, pharaohs and the Nile back in primary school helped spark our desire to travel - and here we are years later finally ticking off this major bucket list country.

For this trip of a lifetime we decided to visit on a tour and after a little googling we found On The Go Tours King Ramses 13 day tour ... it was exactly what we were looking for!

Egypt gives ‘ancient’ a whole new meaning.
That the average age of listed monuments in this amazing country is well over 2000 years is astounding enough. That the remarkable Egyptian civilisation achieved such an extraordinary degree of finesse in its art and everyday life boggles the mind.
Add a considerable concentration of early Christian and medieval Islamic monuments along with a legendary river meandering through it all and you have one of the most culturally fascinating destinations on this planet.

Egypt is one of the most magical destinations I’ve ever visited. As a child, I think Egypt was probably the first place I put on my travel bucket list. Ancient Egyptian history has always fascinated me. And, I can now confirm that after traveling here it’s more amazing than I could have ever imagined.

While the pyramids are incredible, there is so much more to Egypt!

You can easily visit the Great Pyramid on a short stopover in Egypt, but I suggest traveling to Egypt with at least 10 to 12 days available to experience it to the fullest.

If you are limited on time, you can still travel to Cairo and see the pyramids of Giza and make a day trip to Alexandria. Check out my 5-Day Egypt Itinerary for a condensed itinerary for Egypt.

Before planning your first trip to Egypt, make sure you are considering the best time to travel to Egypt. It gets HOT here, and with holiday observances like Ramadan and peak tourism seasons, you want to ensure you’re visiting at the best possible time.

This is the best Egypt itinerary, in my humble option, that will take you from Cairo to some of the best ancient Egyptian sites and beyond!
