It was good, but they will definitely try to steal your money without you knowing. They higher the prices as soon as they know you’re a tourist. Remember, the prices are WAY much cheaper than the United States.

I visit Egypt every month and spend fantastic times in each visit; there is no way else having funny and lovely spirit such as Cairo. If you love diving want the most beautiful beaches you can go to Sharm Alsheikh, Alexandria, North coast, Hurghada. In addition the magnificent Pharaonic antiquities

I’d recommend spending time with locals, it’s a very diverse city so chose the destination wisely depending on what you’re searching for. E.g; adventure & history, food, interaction with locals or maybe classic tourism. You can find it all there!!
