I know what you’re thinking - Egypt? Really Graham? Hasn’t Egypt as a travel destination already been done to death (on the Nile)?? Yes it has, since possibly before the time of Herodotus. But the fact remains: Egypt is still as much of an adventure now as it was 3,000 years ago. Pyramids older than time, ancient temples and monuments that would take a lifetime to explore, the delights of the Red Sea and the eerie isolation of the Eastern Sahara – it just can’t be beaten. Given the current political instability, you’ll pretty much have the place to yourself. Just be careful, okay?Recommended for:

I think Egypt should be a requirement for every traveler. It is a fairly easy place to travel - lots of tour options, transportation for the independent traveler, and a range of accommodation catering to the penny pinching backpacker or the filthy rich. Of course, in terms of attractions the whole country has plenty of awesome stuff. Both times I was there was in winter (Nov. & Jan.) and the weather was comfortable

The country as a whole is hard for me to review, as there were parts I loved and parts I disliked. The temples and tombs were great, but the main tourist areas were really not enjoyable for me. What I loved was camping out in the desert, where the scenery is spectacular and the people were the most friendly - if you go to Egypt, make time for this, it's where you will see the true beauty of the country and it's people.

Loved, loved, loved being in Egypt, touring all the wonderful and amazing places, temples, etc! Went for 5 weeks and ended up staying almost 4 months!!! Had to leave because summer was coming (too hot for my tastes), but otherwise, I may have extended my stay even longer!

The 14 days trip in Egypt is my best trip ever. We traveled along the Nile river. The stunning pyramids and Citadel in Cairo, Sapphire blue Mediterranean sea in Alexandria, the peaceful and quiet town of Aswan, and the magnificent Karnak Temple in Luxor..... Everyday we were walking through a whole new world, a different fragment of history. Even though I have left, some part of my heart stays there.

Offering an eclectic mix of either historical exploration or sun-soaked beach holiday, Egypt is a year-round destination that caters to many tastes.
From the family-friendly Red Sea resorts to the wow factor of some of the world’s most famous sights, the two ends of the spectrum couldn’t be more different.
Whichever part of this fascinating country you decide to visit, you are guaranteed not to leave disappointed.

Egypt is a wonderful Country that is getting a bad rap from the press...
Recently I was there with my family and we had the whole Pyramids to ourselves...
Egyptian people were very friendly and treated us like royalty..
Our Guides were very knowledgeable an at no time we had any issues with security....

[ The Mystery of Egyptian Spices ]
At least that's what I always say! It’s a delight to try different tastes within oriental dishes and meals you get while traveling abroad. But what makes the Egyptian cuisine tastes or smells really good is adding some extra secrets while cooking. Unlike Indian or chinese cuisines, Egyptian food won't be very hot or spicy, but it is quite essential to Egyptian cuisine to add spices while cooking. While it is known that Egyptians live to eat rather than eat to live, the Egyptian cuisine is one of the rarest and most delicious around the world. Spices are enriched with a slight chili taste and vibrant smells that revives in anyone a monstrous appetite.
- Secrets Revealed about the Egyptian Cuisine -
The magical influence of Egyptian cuisine to getting into a state of fullness and joy, is due to the Egyptians’ artisitc ability of cooking, keeping the old mixtures of spices and herbs that goes back to Pharaonic traditions in baking and cooking practices in ancient Egypt. Those oriental recipes have held their components to this today with some additions and medical discoveries they’ve just kept Egyptian's eating habits more delightful.

Hands down, this was the most beautiful place I have ever been. It was wonderful to see all the places I had read about while I was in school. If you ever have the chance to go I would highly recommend it. I would suggest however to do your research and get a couple guidebooks so you know the safe places to go.

The stunning, colossal monuments of Ancient Egypt never fail to astonish. The heat, sight and the light of the desert invigorate. The cool, turquoise waters rejuvenate. A romantic cruise along the world's longest river dazzles the senses. A first class getaway resort in the Red Sea Riviera is pure escapism. No place has the magic, mystery and pleasures of Egypt. Travel to Egypt to discover a world of wonder

Just back from Egypt. Day after return, Tahrir Square was filled with protestors again. But aside from that, all is well in Egypt. Lines are short, tourists are few. NOW is the time to go. You won't regret it. If you need a guide while there, let me know. Romani is THE best.

I went to Egypt back in 2004 and it is an amazing country. The pyramids and sphinx were architectural masterpieces and visiting the ancient burial tombs were mind boggling. I also got to experience the Nile river via a cruise which was alot of fun. The people were friendly and the food interesting. It was interesting to see how one part of the city could be very westernized while other parts still resemble a third world country.
