Egypt has been commonly known as the cradle of civilization, this is for good reason as Egypt has over 6000 years of history which best represented it's capital Cairo.

For generations, travelers have flocked to Egypt to admire its ancient pyramids and temples, Egypt is a country blessed to have its share of natural wonders varying from the River Nile to the ancient pyramids of Giza and the Red Sea.

An Egyptian vacation is always full of excitement for every member of the family. At the heart of Egypt’s cultural identity is Cairo, a cosmopolitan capital where historic churches, mosques and museums rub shoulders with luxury hotels and gourmet restaurants.

Lion World Travel is here to provide you with your must visit locations for every first time visitor to Egypt.

Guide for first time visitors in Egypt

Visit the Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx

The Egyptian pyramids are one of the main reasons that millions of people travel to Egypt. These pyramids have a history that spans over 4000 years and have been listed as one of the 7 wonders of the world.

To say the least these incredible monuments are both architecturally stunning and mind boggling, despite being 4000 plus years old.

Travelers should aim to see the pyramids once during the day and once at night as the light show, shown during the evening sessions is also a stunning viewpoint. Visiting the Pyramids of Giza, should be on every travelers Egyptian bucket list regardless of their age.

Take a Journey down the Nile River

A journey through the world famous Nile River is an iconic part of visiting Egypt in fact a famous phrase in the country is “Masr Hebat Al Nile” which translates to "Egypt is gifted by the Nile". The Nile is essential to the ancient civilizations and prosperity of Egypt, as it has a prolific part in the development of Egypt, as it was a major trade route for North Africa.

A must do on the Nile is to sail through on a "falouka", this will be each visitors mode of transport when sailing inside Cairo or for longer journeys to Aswan.

Enter into the Incredible Abu Simbel Temple

A visit to the incredible temple of Abu Simbel is a must in Egypt as it features some of the a variety of famous Egyptian relics. Additionally the temple is surronded by the breath taking Lake Nasser. An iconic photo op is the 4 statues that greet you outside the main temple, this is one of the best spots to grab a selfie.

The sense of wonder that the Abu Simbel temple leaves you with is an incredible level of respect for the ancient civilization that came before us. 

A Trip to the Valley of Kings in Luxor

The Valley of the Kings is one of the most important historical sights in Egypt, which is my reasoning as to why it should be in every first timers Egypt itinerary.

Visitors will need to prepare to be amazed by the thousand years old scriptures that they will be witnessing. A must see when inside the Valley of Kings is the famous tomb of Tutankhamen.


"My wife and I booked a South African excursion with Lion World Travel in Spring of 2018 and were so blown away by the service, accommodations and experience that we decided to book our honeymoon with Lion World travel when we decided to go to Egypt in the spring of 2019 after getting married in the fall of 2018.

Everyone we've dealt with at Lion World travel has gone above and beyond to provide the best possible travel experience we could think of. The booking agents have been patient and helpful while planning our trips. The accommodations they book are all 5-star, first-class places, the sites you visit and excursions listed are all well-planned and staffed with experienced, friendly, knowledgeable guides. Not once in either location did we feel unsafe. They pay attention to every detail! Not to mention, the trips are relatively affordable compared to some of the other offerings. They take all of the guess-work out of planning these trips and made for an anxiety-free vacation.

Now that we've traveled with Lion World twice, there's no doubt that we'll book with them again. We've also recommended them to our family and friends".
