Complete Guide to Travel to EgyptCOMPLETE GUIDE TO TRAVEL TO EGYPT

Egypt is one of those countries that you have to visit at least once in your life. Egypt is living history, it is exciting to see that you are walking through buildings that are more than 4,000 years old. In Egypt, you feel small strolling among hieroglyphs and engravings, between large statues and obelisks, in front of temples built for love and moved stone by stone so that they do not get lost under the waters of the Nile.

We spent two whole weeks in Egypt and we made the trip completely for free. The only thing we hired in advance was the Nile cruise and the rest we did by public transport. We toured Cairo, Giza, Saqqara, Luxor to Aswan by cruise, Abu Simbel, Marsa Alam and Hurghada.
