About My Trip to Egypt

My Egyptian adventure began in the bustling city of Cairo. But my heart belonged to the ancient wonders, so I wasted no time and journeyed to Luxor. There, I descended into the tombs of the Valley of the Kings, awestruck by the stories etched on their walls. The colossal statues of Memnon stood guard, whispering tales of a bygone era. Luxor and Karnak temples unfolded before me, their grandeur leaving me speechless.

Returning to Cairo, I couldn’t resist the iconic pyramids of Giza. Yet, my curiosity led me further south, where I explored the fascinating pyramids of Saqqara and Dahshur, hidden gems with their own secrets.

My recent trip from Nairobi to Cairo on Egypt Air began with a straightforward booking process. Transportation to the Nairobi airport was manageable, and the check-in procedure itself was efficient. Unfortunately, the departure encountered a delay of several hours. While this was inconvenient, the onboard amenities, including a meal service and entertainment system, helped alleviate the wait. 

Upon arrival in Cairo, I found the customs and immigration process to be swift and efficient. In conclusion, with the exception of the delay, the overall experience with Egypt Air was positive.

The Pyramids of Giza were awe-inspiring! They are truly massive and even more impressive in person than in pictures. However, the place is also crawling with tourists, so it can be overwhelming at times. There are also a ton of vendors selling souvenirs and camel rides, which can be a bit much.

That’s why I decided to hire a guide and it was definitely the right decision. My guide helped me navigate the crowds and took me to the best viewpoints for capturing photos of the pyramids from different angles. He was also super knowledgeable about the history of the pyramids and explained all about the pharaohs and the construction process. Having this context made the whole experience so much richer.

The Great Pyramid of Giza lived up to its fame, but it was also packed with tourists and vendors. While glad I saw it, I discovered other Egyptian pyramids offered a quieter experience. Skip the crowds and head to Saqqara or Dahshur, near Cairo! Both boast fascinating pyramids and a glimpse into ancient Egypt’s past, at a fraction of the cost and crowds.


Luxor’s Valley of the Kings blew my mind. Imagine – hidden tombs of pharaohs, carved 3,500 years ago and rediscovered in the 1800s! Descending felt like stepping back in time.

Vivid hieroglyphics adorn the walls, depicting the pharaohs’ lives and afterlife journeys. It is impossible to visit all the tombs in a single visit, so I focused my time on the tombs of Rameses IV, Tutankhamun, Merenptah, Rameses I, and Rameses V/VI.

Hiring a guide is key – they unlock the stories behind the hieroglyphs, making these tombs come alive.

Luxor in a day? Believe it or not, it’s possible! This whistle-stop tour from Cairo packs a punch, cramming in the Valley of the Kings’ tombs, the colossal statues of Memnon, and the awe-inspiring temples of Luxor and Karnak. Descend into ancient tombs, marvel at hieroglyphics, and wander through towering columns – Luxor’s history comes alive in a single day.

It’s a whirlwind adventure perfect for those short on time, but big on experiencing ancient wonders! Just remember to book ahead, wear sun protection, and consider a guide to unlock the full stories behind these incredible sights.

Stepping into King Tut’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings, I was surrounded by history. The young pharaoh’s mummified form lay ahead, guarded by treasures and vibrant wall paintings depicting his afterlife journey. From the baboons symbolizing gods to the gleaming gold sarcophagus, it was a breathtaking glimpse into ancient Egyptian beliefs.
