    Have 3 days in Egypt. Is that enough to see Cairo & Luxor?

    The time is really tight. To achieve 3 full days for sightseeing you would actually need to be overnighting the night before you start sightseeing. ie 4 nights arriving day one, sightseeing days 2,3 and 4, then depart on day 5. You need a full day for the pyramids and the main sights in Cairo. To do Luxor in one day is very difficult since the number of flights has reduced so I would overnight there and have the extra time taking in the more local atmosphere and the history and then time your flight Luxor to Cairo to connect with the international flight departing from Egypt thus avoiding a potential waste of half a day travelling within Cairo. If you want any help organising just let me know, almost 8 years ago

    Is it safe to travel to Egypt?

    Concur totally with Phil. I am a New Zealander currently residing in Egypt and life pretty much continues as it was prior to the revolution with the exception of Fridays when I avoid areas where protests are likely to occur. In the south of Egypt (Luxor and Aswan) many people rely on tourism so they are still welcoming and there are little or no issues. If you are hoping to come in Dec/Jan this is high season as the weather in the south has very pleasant temperatures during the day so I would recommend booking as soon as possible. Let the US embassy know you are here when you come and you will recieve any travel advisories they send out. All the best. almost 8 years ago
