Planning a trip to Egypt? To help make your Egypt vacation as easy as possible, here is an ultimate 2-Week Egypt Travel Itinerary. Use this itinerary as a guide so you don’t miss any of the best things to do in Egypt. If you are wondering “Is Egypt Safe?” keep reading for our thoughts below.
Egypt Travel Day 1 – Arrive in Cairo
Welcome to Cairo! You will spend 3 nights in Cairo.
When you arrive at the airport, call an Uber instead of a taxi. Ubers are always easier and cheaper than taxis in Cairo. Uber in Egypt is safe and reliable. We used Uber whenever possible when we were in Egypt.

Where to Stay: Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino
Egypt Travel Day 2 – Pyramids of Giza
The first thing you want to do in Egypt is see the pyramids! Plan for at least half a day at the pyramids.
We spent almost all day there. Since it was our first day in Egypt we took a more relaxing morning to catch up on jetlag and enjoy breakfast at the hotel. We arrived at the pyramids around 10 AM and stayed until around 4 PM. We took our time wandering around all the pyramids, going to the solar boat museum, and even took a camel ride.
If you want to get to the pyramids super early in the morning and skip the camel ride (which takes about 45 mins) you could plan for half a day here.
Whatever you do, please read the post below before visiting the pyramids!!
