Al Haram, Nazlet El-Semman, Al Haram, Giza Governorate, Egypt

Traveling with mom to a destination that many tend to shy from. We had an incredible journey traveling throughout Egypt and cruising down the nile.

Nagaa El Kubba, West Bank، Abu AR Rish Qebli, Qism Aswan, Aswan Governorate 99999, Egypt
I wanted to visit a Nubian Village in Aswan that did not see any other tourists; my guide delivered! We spent hours with this wonderful family in their home. The extended family arrived a bit after we did. We had an extremely enjoyable morning,...

El-Gamaleya, Qism El-Gamaleya, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
This gentleman caught my eye from his stool in the back of the store as I wandered through the narrow alleys of the Khan el-Khalili souk in Cairo, and he beckoned me to come in. Thinking of my already overstuffed suitcase and still a bit skittish...

Aswan Governorate, Egypt
Traveling from Alexandria to Abu Simbel gives you an astonishing sense of Egypt and it's ancient treasures. Pyramids, tombs, and heiroglyphics are set on a burning hot backdrop of smoggy cities, tour busses, and one salesman after the next...

I can't describe the feeling that I got when we arrived at the Pyramids for our Farewell party. It was incredible.

Qesm Siwah, Matrouh Governorate, Egypt
The day had been spent speeding (and tumbling in my case) down enormous sand dunes on questionable snowboards, a pastime that filled one's head with sand and spirit with unending exhilaration. We had swum in hot springs and very cold springs,...

Al Haram, Giza Governorate, Egypt
You may have studied them in school and seen a million pictures, but that has probably done little to prepare you for actually seeing the Pyramids of Giza in real life. Standing in the shadow of the 450 foot tall Great Pyramid is a humbling...

16 Ettimad st.Luxor, Luxor, مدينة الأقصر، الأقصر، 83000, Egypt
When visiting the Temple of Hatshepsut, be sure to hike over the top and descend into the Valley of the Kings. The hike takes 30-45 minutes and is accessed by a trailhead near the visitor's center. From the top you can take photos, but you'll not...

15 Meret Basha, Ismailia, Qasr an Nile, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
You could spend a lifetime examining the more than 120,000 items in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, in Cairo. The collection is as vast as it is priceless. The cluttered rooms and dusty display cases give the museum a colonial charm. One of...

El-Gamaleya, Qism El-Gamaleya, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
A beautiful teahouse at Khan El Khalili, the impressive souk in Cairo which dates to the 1300's. Could have spent a week in the bazaar!

Al Haram, Nazlet El-Semman, Al Haram, Giza Governorate, Egypt
Offers of camel rides are a standard feature of visits to the pyramids. While I resisted all attempts to get me to take advantage of riding or having my picture taken with one, I did look for opportunities to include them in pictures I was taking...

The night I spent in Egypt’s White Desert, the moon shone so brightly that the rocks towering over our campsite cast shadows on the sand. The White Desert is known for its stunning rock formations, made of pure-white “chalk rock” that the wind and...

Aswan, Aswan Governorate, Egypt
I think it was the Greeks who invented columns but in my opinion, it was the Egyptians who gave them beauty. I saw this stunning set at Philae which is an archeological site located on an island in Lake Nassar in Egypt. Philae is located just a...

Aswan, Aswan Governorate, Egypt
A tourist floating up the Nile in Southern Egypt in a felucca (traditional sailboat) is full of wonder: What discoveries will the temples at Abu Simbel bring? The Temple of Isis? What is life like onboard the huge (and expensive) cruise boats that...

Egypt Madinat nasr, Mustafa Al Nahas Intersection with Abbas Al Aqad, Cario, New Valley Governorate, Egypt
Having recently been to Egypt and having the chance to see the great pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, I realize how much you can get out of using a professional local guide, especially when they can get you exclusive access. Looking back at my...

Luxor City, Luxor, Luxor Governorate, Egypt
The ancient temple ruins at Karnak in Luxor, Egypt, are the second most popular tourist attraction in Egypt after the Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. Karnak was built starting more than 4,000 years ago and was constructed, destroyed, and...

El-Karnak, Luxor, Luxor Governorate, Egypt
I visited countless temples on my brief visit to Egypt, but my favorite, by far, was the Karnak Temple complex, the largest ancient religious site in the world. A visit to the complex begins with a walk lined on both sides by ram statues, leading...

Aswan, Aswan Governorate, Egypt
Somewhere between Luxor and Aswan a number of these merchants docked their boats midstream, caught a ride and a few sales. Merchandise was thrown back and forth between vessels, accompanied by entertaining (and very vocal) barter.

At dawn we gathered, a handful of cyclists bound for Egypt's Valley of the Kings on the Nile's West Bank. We'd seen the Red Sea Coast on two wheels, on Egypt's first organized bike tour with Bike Beyond Boundaries (www.bikebeyondboundaries.com),...

Alexandria, Alexandria Governorate, Egypt
Very easy to find but relatively unknown to non-locals, this market's winding alleyways are tight and full of shops dedicated to the sundries that traditionally ladies gravitate towards. Known colloquially as the "women's squeeze", pretty much...

Alexandria, Alexandria Governorate, Egypt
Egypt's 2nd largest city, Alexandria is where I find a fusion of cultural influences, old and new, giving the city a distinct flavour unlike anywhere else in the world. Founded by Alexander the Great in 331BC, there are few Greco-Roman structures...

Giza, Al Omraneyah, Giza Governorate, Egypt
I actually thought the Great Pyramid was in Cairo. Upon arriving there I realized that was such a misconception that a lot of us have about the pyramids. They are actually located in Giza, outside of Cairo. It was surreal to see the oldest of the...

There are so many bucket list–worthy activities to sample in Egypt: hot air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings, camel riding around the Pyramids of Giza, scuba diving in Dahab, hiking Mount Sinai in the middle of the night... choosing the...

Luxor, Luxor City, Luxor, Luxor Governorate, Egypt
Experience the Nile as the Pharaohs did, going slowly with only six cabins onboard. Aside from the beauty and tranquility of this cruiser, the pace of the itinerary allows time for you to actually absorb what you're seeing. Here, we're docked at...

This was the view from the balcony of our room at the top of the Basma Hotel in Aswan, Egypt, overlooking the Nile. While all of Egypt was amazing on this trip as it always is (it was my fifth), the time spent at this beautiful hilltop hotel was...

Siwa Oasis, Qesm Siwah, Matrouh Governorate, Egypt
Perhaps it takes a trip to the middle of nowhere, somewhere like Siwa, to remind oneself of their insignificance in this big, beautiful world. And of how truly important one thing is: having gratitude. The desert allowed me to stop for a moment...

Aswan, Aswan Governorate, Egypt
The Nile is the heart and arteries of Egypt. There are many options to ride along the longest river in the world's current, but to get close to El Nil, take an overnight trip on a traditional Felucca. It's an easy and lazy ride down the river past...

Aswan Governorate, Egypt
The Great Pyramids of Giza are very impressive and rightfully earn their wonder of the world title. But then there's Abu Simbel. The site has, well, personality. Ramses II is present at every turn, as is his wife Nefertari. Four giant likenesses...

The sunset, wind, and waves made the waterfront promenade at the Qaitbay Fort my favorite spot in Alexandria, Egypt. The fifteenth-century fort stands at the tip of a peninsula on the Mediterranean, built on the ruins of the Pharos Lighthouse, one...

Giza, Al Omraneyah, Giza Governorate, Egypt
To call a visit to the Great Sphinx of Giza a highlight of one's life has to be one of the all time biggest understatements. I was on a very special trip with John Anthony West, rogue Egyptologist and symbolist interpreter of the ancient...

Aswan Governorate, Egypt
This half day trip from Aswan is worth the 3am wake up call. Coming around the corner with the lake on one side and this outstanding temple on the other is amazing. Read up on the fascinating history before you go.
