Popular Egypt Tours
If you are looking for day tours to take while you explore Egypt, I suggest you do one to the Valley of the Kings. You will get so much more out of your time in Luxor having a knowledgeable guide spend the day with you. These tours are so affordable and it gives you a chance to get to know some of the locals in Egypt.

8 Things to Bring with you to Egypt
I have always been a guide book person and physically having that book in your hand as you plan your day, in addition to blogs like this one, can help immensely. Pick up a Lonely Planet Guide to Egypt (or the kindle version) before your trip to Egypt.
A Power Bank is a must when traveling. With a day of photo and videos it is easy for a phone battery to be drained before the day is out. Make sure you grab one that has enough juice to power a few charges. Keep it in your carry on, as some airports will take it out of your checked bags.
SCARF, HAT & SUNGLASSES
Whether you want to keep the sun off your head or want to show a little modesty, a scarf goes a long way in Egypt any time of the year. You will find both men and women wearing scarves all over the Middle East. You can bring one with you or pick up one when you arrive, but don’t leave your hotel in the morning without it! It can serve as a hat to keep the sun off your head and neck in the summer and can add some warmth in winter and can offer modesty to cover shoulders for women. Also make sure you have a sun and sunglasses any time of year.
A Grayl Water Bottle is something I recommend for every traveller, not just those going to the Middle East. Some people say the water is safe to drink from the tap, others say it is not; it is not something I am going to chance. And Egypt has a HUGE garbage problem. The streets, the forests and even the desert are littered with plastic bottles.
If you consider drinking at least 1-2 big water bottles a day while you are there, think of how much plastic that creates. With a Grayl, you can filter any tap water (or actually any water source) and have clean drinking water in seconds. Since most people travel with water bottles already, consider one like this with a filter so that you are not just pouring from big water bottles to small. It might sound expensive, but when you compare it to spending a few dollars per day on water while you travel (and do not forget how expensive the water is inside airports), you will pay for this very quickly.
UNIVERSAL TRAVEL ADAPTER
An inexpensive Universal Travel Adapter is another must for Egypt. You will find an assortment of 220V plugs, from European 2 pin, another style of 2 pin and UK Plugs. While European 2 pin is most common, it is best to carry one of these adapters with you. With a handy USB input, you do not need to bring your plugs from home.
KLEENEX OR WIPES
Kleenex or Wipes are another thing to put on your list. Egypt’s public washrooms (and even restraint or hotel lobby washrooms can often be unstocked. Unless you are good with a bidet sprayer, bring yourself some kleenex or wipes just in case! You will find that most washrooms in tourist sites and rest stops have an attendant that will give you toilet paper and paper towel for a small tip.
In much of Egypt, the plumbing is not set up to handle toilet paper. Every bathroom (even hotels) you should use the garbage can beside the toilet for your toilet paper and any sanitary products.
Metal Straws are something to think about if your environmental impact is important to you. You will be given a straw with almost every drink. You can say no and reuse a metal one instead.
Travel Insurance for Egypt
There are a few other things to think about when it comes to travel. The first thing is travel insurance. Whether it is an emergency room visit for something as simple as strep throat, or an emergency appendix surgery, or an unfortunate moped incident things do go wrong when people travel everyday.
I highly suggest travel insurance and a good policy. I personally never travel without it, and I even checked into my policy about care for my children if I am ever in an accident or hospitalized. There are just too many things to think about.
