Visit Egypt, it will be a trip of a lifetime!
My wife and I are pretty seasoned travellers, but our trip to Egypt quickly became our favourite trip. It was our first time on a tour as well, typically we book all our own hotels, transportation, activities etc, but for Egypt, I recommend to all my friends to take a tour. Egypt's history is so rich and colourful you would never be able to get a full understanding just from reading tour books.
We did the King Ramas tour with On the Go Tours and had Momo as our tour guide. Momo was absolutely amazing, he was the perfect level of energetic and fun and knew just how to make our group connect and have fun. When explaining different parts of the history he would make the discussions interactive and engaging.
Our hotels were beautiful and clean with amazing customer service. They all seemed to have double the staff any hotels in North America have, so anything you need/want there is someone ready instantly to make it happen.
The Pyramids were incredible, as you'd expect. Philae Temple in Aswan was one of my favourite stop, it was so beautiful and detailed in just a picturesque spot on the Nile. I also loved learning about the Nubian people while in Aswan and seeing an authentic part of their traditional culture. Abu Simbel was definitely the highlight of my trip, it is a paid upgrade, but you 100% must do it. It was amazing to drive into the Sahara desert, to find this beautiful temple beside a lake. Abu Simbel has very interesting ancient and recent history. We also upgraded to the Nile cruise, I hear the Felucca was fun, but loved our time on the cruise. The meals were delicious, the staff amazing and it was so relaxing to lay by the pool. Kom Ombo was a smaller temple, mind-blowing to hear the stories of ancient Egyptians wrestling crocodiles. Luxor was cool to see, and the massive size of Karnak Temple is hard to comprehend but beautiful to walk through. Valley of the Kings was my wife's favourite part of the tour, the detailed colourful hieroglyphs and drawings are unlike anything else we saw. Hurghada was beautiful, the perfect beach vacation to relax after so much touring. The Cairo museum was very cool, with King Tut's treasures as the highlight.
Questions my Friends Ask:
Did we feel safe?
100% all the time, I felt far safer in Egypt than I did in Athens, Vancouver, LA, Seattle, Lisbon, London etc. Overall we found the Egyptians to be incredibly welcoming and just thrilled to see us.
Was it safe as a Gay Couple?
Yes, 100%. Same as with hetero couples, PDA is not recommended. But our tour guide and group all knew and we felt perfectly safe. Momo was even able to get us king beds not twins.
Did you have to cover up?
Yes, women should cover their knees and shoulders while in public. My wife is more a "Tom Boy" and was able comfortable in men's shorts and t-shirts. You do not need a scarf to cover your head as some of the other sites mention.
Were you Cat Called or felt a lot of men's attention?
We were not cat called, some shop attendants would call me beautiful to try and get my attention to their shops, but I would just smile and walk away. A did feel a few more eyes on me then I do at home, but it is more because our light skin is not the norm there. I never felt threatened or have my personal space invaded by them. ”
Momo was absolutely fantastic!! He definitely made the tour better than we could’ve ever imagined! The tour was well planned, with lots to do and see every day. I am recommending this tour to everyone I know! Thanks for the great experience. ”
