    Been to Egypt twice but both times to Hurghada. Given a choice of Cairo or Luxor I found Luxor much more breath taking so if you are thinking of taking in the history I would recommend there. It's incredibly hot, but there was a nice welcome breeze. Enjoy I love Egypt.

    IMO having been to both Luxor is far nicer experience. I didn't like Cairo at all and although the pyramids were lovely it wasn't the money we spent and i wasn't overly impressed with the Cairo museum - too hot busy and stuffy and you have to pay to see the good bits....haven't been to Petra - its a long way and that's what we want to do next time. In Luxor we did Valley of the kings, queen hatsput (however its spelt) temple and Karnak which was totally breathtaking. For 6 full days I think doing 3 big trips will be too much - just one was tiring in a fortnight and you want time for relaxing, snorkelling and scuba diving too.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh I've only just seen this, I went to Egypt with my sister a few years ago & loved it, we walked up Mount Sinai at night to watch the sunrise in the morning, that was pretty amazing, as the sun rose people started chanting

    Yes it was magical & you could see the change in the colour of the mount as the sun rose. I don't think we'll go back (no reason other than I like to try new places), but if I did I'd do that again.

    I lived in Cairo for 3 years in the early 70's I loved it, we could see the pyramids from our kitchen window!! We used to go to the Khan el Khalili quite a lot and yes be prepared for being pestered while you are shopping. We did the Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor on a little old paddle steamer looked like the one from the film "Death on the Nile". I would love to go back for a holiday as although it is a huge noisy city I think there is something magical about it.
