My trip to Egypt was nothing short of incredibly challenging and extremely fulfilling. From the historic Pyramids of Giza and Luxor Temple, to the amazing Egyptian food and wildly entertaining people, this was truly a trip of a lifetime.
Here is my Ultimate Egypt Travel Guide in Q&A Form:
IS EGYPT SAFE?
Yes. If we compare Egypt to let’s say Brazil, I think it is very safe. In many places around Latin America you have to be worried about being robbed at gunpoint, car jacked, pickpocketed and much more.
In Egypt, you just have to look out for scammers, hecklers, gawkers, and people trying to sell you things or get undeserved tips from you. That is my very short answer.
*See my episode “Is Egypt Safe for Women” for more information.
IS EGYPT EXPENSIVE?
No. As I explain in the video; you can find good quality hotels in Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, and across Egypt for a good price. Tours are affordable, and transportation can also be done on a budget. Entrance fees and tips can add up, so just be aware of that.
You just need to be aware of people trying to charge you more money on small things.
Food costs will be between $3-10 USD per meal, and Uber is the best and cheapest way to get around.
IS IT DIFFICULT TO FILM? HOW WERE THE POLICE?
We did not have trouble filming at all. We were usually either with local friends or a tour guide, and they opened many doors for us. We filmed as low-key as possible, and we removed our microphones for the majority of our trip. We also did not bring drones.
As for Egyptian Police, we truly did not have any issues. Whenever necessary, I explained that I was an American photographer or YouTuber and they were honestly just excited.
Tyler and I also traveled with very limited gear as to not intimidate anyone, and we filmed with our iPhones wherever necessary.
