is like so totally awesome! #1 tourist destination.
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.
I have just returned from
alone and am a young woman. I had no problems -- it's a lovely place. Just dress conservative. Yes, you are stared at and hassled a bit, but just say you're married and your husband is working and always say you're busy and goodbye. This worked for me. Garden City is a safe and quiet area for ladies alone. Go for it -- I did and it won't be my last time.
I am an American who lived in
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!
I have been to
. 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.
is considered a upperclass neighborhood, which I found to be safe and friendly. This area of the city is provides a central starting point for tourist and business people alike, and is within walking distance of great shopping, banks, and dining.
