Just starting to plan a 2 week trip to Egypt and I need some advice. I know it is not recommended to drive your self but my husband and I are willing to take the risk. Just hear me out.......I plan to fly in to Cairo, explore that area and drive to Aswan as my final destination and fly back to Cairo. I know the drive from Cairo to Luxor is about 9 hours. Is it a scenic drive? I am told that traveling in a convoy is not necessary anymore. Are there places to stay midway that we can break up the trip? By places to stay I mean high end places. Unfortunately most people dont drive so it isnt covered in guide books in depth. I dont have any specific itinerary in mind yet.
