"Tombs and Temples" Egypt Favorite Tip by FireMike
Egypt General: 631 reviews and 622 photos
Favorite thing: If you had only a day or two to see temples and tombs I would highly reccomend Luxor over Cairo, NO CONTEST. With the Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple and the Valley of the Kings/Queens (which hosts some more temples as well).
Fondest memory: Might be a little cold, but the funniest part of our whole Valley of the Kings experience was refusing to pay for a taxi for the 3 km walk from the ferry crossing to the Valley. A taxi had pulled over and was asking a ridiculous price for the trip, we tried to talk him down but he refused so we said forget it and continued to walk. He drove away only to come back with a lower price offered, we said he blew his chance and continued to walk. He drove away again then came back with an even lower price eventually begging us to get in at a much lower price then we had origanally suggested. But by this time were almost there so we walked the rest of the way.
