Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos

Christian Jacq, a sucessful french egyptologist with plenty of books on Egypt, has an excelent guide on ancient monuments: "Voyage dans l'Egypt des pharaons" it's the original French title. It focus essencially on the more accessible to the average tourist, although it also covers others, like some in the almost forbidden (for foreign travelers) zone of Medium Egypt. The writing is compact, comprehensive and you don't need any great previous knowledge on Ancient Egypt culture to understand it. Every aspects related with the monuments (architecture, religion, history, etc.) is well explained and put in context.
