Egitto Comments

Il Cairo is the paradise of backpackers.
Luxor is filthy. Get in and out. The people hassle you nonstop. The sound and light show at the Karnak temple is a waste. Go see the sights on your own in the daytime. Also, you don't need guides for the valley of the kings. Cabbies will try to get you to pay 100 LE to take you around the sights -- you can get it for a lot less if you just get cabs as you need them. Hotel packages are therefore a ripoff as they usually charge at least 80 to 90 LE per person. Don't let anyone lead you to the currency exchange -- they'll come in and get a commission off you at your expense in the form of a greatly reduced rate and the same goes for hotels. Overall it's a super cheap city.
Il Cairo is the best place in Africa.
I have been to Luxor. I had the best pizza in all my life in Quick Pizza in TV Street. I want everyone to go there -- they have a good pizza. They have home delivery as well -- very fast to the hotels.
I am an American who lived in Il Cairo for twenty-seven years. The city is friendly and people will go out of their way to help foreigners. There are hustlers who will try to push their wares on you at the tourist sites. As far as safety goes, it is much safer than a large American city. You will have a great time! Please try to learn a few words in Arabic, it really helps!
Dahab is a nice place.
