What to See in Egypt ??

Am looking at doing a tour in Egypt, wanting to see the sights, but there are sooo many!! Which ones should I include?? Thought I would like to see the Red Sea too, either 'Red sea Beach Camp?' or 'Hurghada' and do a Nile cruise, and see the best of the tombs etc. Any recommendations??

Am looking at the Intrepid Journey 'Discouver Egypt" tour if anyone has done that?

Two questions come to mind. One, what is your budget ?, two, how long do you intend to spend in Egypt ?.

If you want to do the highlights then certainly Cairo, Luxor and Aswan are musts as well as a trip to see the incredible temples at Abu Simbel (doable from Aswan by either road convoy or flight).

If you do a Nile cruise then that will include Luxor (Valley of the Kings, Karnak etc) and Aswan (Philae) as well as the other sites in between (Edfu etc).

For visiting the Red Sea you then have the resorts such as Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada.

As you say there is a lot to see and do so you really want to do as much reading as possible, work out your budget and then see what trips fit in with those.
