My wife and I are headed to Egypt for the first time in anout 3 weeks to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We direct booked most of the trip with help from TA Forum posts. Booked some high-end and some not so much. 3 days in Cairo at the Marriott with tours set up of Giza and Cairo. Then on to Luxor for a short and expensive stay at the old Winter Palace with a tour of the Valley of the Kings and then on the Alexander the Great for 7 nights cruising from Luxor down to Aswan and Abu Simbel, then back to Concorde El Salam and back home.
You may certainly comment on my itinerary if you wish, but really want to know your top 3 Tips for our first visit.
