Cairo Tour or Luxor Tour from Sharm

Many people ask us, "if I only go on one excursion, would you recomend Cairo or Luxor?". This is always a hard question to answer, both trips have so much to offer with sights you will never forget, this article will hopefully help you as much as we can to make up your mind.

Cairo is where the pryamids are found, truly a breath-taking sight and deservadly one of the wonders of the world. Its the sight you've seen in films, on documentries and read about in books, somewhere that everbody wants to be able to say, "I've been there" about.

In my opinion everyone coming to Egypt has to see Cairo, mainly for the pyraminds, afterall its one of the wonders of the world!

Luxor is just as amazing, but not quite as well known. The Valley of the Kings is the main thing to see in the trip to Luxor, where for 500 years all the Kings of Ancient Egypt were buried.

My Opinion

The first time i went to Cairo i couldnt wait to see the Pyramids. I had seen them a thousand times on TV before, learnt about them briefly in school, but seeing them in person was completely different. They were aboslutely massive, and preserved better than i thought they would be aswell. The Sphinx was also very interesting to see, something that i had not really heard much about before the excursion to Cairo.

Luxor was just as impressive, maybe even more so. The temples i saw here were so grand, and so highly decorated, it amazed me how these were built so long ago! The Valley of the Kings was brilliant to, being able to look around the burial site of all the famous old Kings, and walk around the valley.

To be honest i really cant say which I enjoyed more, I have been on both excursions to Cairo and Luxor dozens of times now and still enjoy them every time.

Hopefully lots of people who have been on our excursion to Cairo or Luxor will leave comments below to give there opinion, and help you make up your mind.

Dear Mohammed This is first time we went to Egypt and all of your excursions gave us plenty of amusements. We all enjoyed the entire adventure excursions especially quad bike, camel ride, Scuba diving. Adventure Safari to Abu Galum & Blue HoleI was really great. I would like to thank you for all of your good arrangements. We had a lovely time during our holiday in Egypt. I would also like to thanks to all the tour operators accompanied with us in various excursions. They were really friendly, helpful and welcoming. Thanks for your great help in Cairo. I had a best ever trip in Egypt and I will definitely recommend Sharm Excursions for the best tour service. Shahinoor Roshid, Rehana Akter & Nurul Abser

We went on both trips earlier this month and absolutely loved it! We had the same dilemma as this so thought we would leave what we found after both trips. Cairo was brilliant and we loved the Pyramids, but to be honest we actually preferred Luxor Excursion with SharmExcursions as the temples were even more amazing!
