If you plan to visit Egypt once during your lifetime or you want to hit most important cities and sightseeing within the same visit, in this case from 7 - 10 days will be the most recommanded for trips to Egypt. During your holiday you must visit Cairo and do a Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan at a minimum. If you stay longer, you can do the beautiful city of Alexandria or relax in any of the Red Sea resorts like Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada. But if you want a real desert safari experience, you will need to go farther out into the Western Desert (Dakhla, Kharga, Farafra and the famous Siwa Oasis near the Libyan border), but you’ll have to tack on a few extra days to accommodate the addition.

Arabic language is the official language of Egypt but the colloquial Egyptian (Masry) Arabic is the most widely spoken in the country and it is not much different from the starndard Arabic but it is much easier. English and other languages, like French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, German ..ect, are most widely used among people working for the tourism sector. English and French are taught in Egyptian schools but it's not spoken as second languages in Egypt. But Not all people in Egypt are fluent in English.
The first thing to consider is that baksheesh (tipping) is very much part and parcel of Egyptian culture. Tipping is a way of life in Egypt because most people working have very low wages, so tips are expected in Egypt for almost any high standard of service provided. Service charges and taxes are by default included in any bill. but these fees don't go to people who are serving. So it will be advisable and courteous to directly tip the servers with an additional 10%.
There is no special dress code you need to wear when visiting Egypt. Just in the religious places like mosques or churches it will be required to cover arms and legs for both men and women.

USD is widely accepted in Egypt. In some situations as small shops may want LE for small purchases, in this case you can withdraw EGP money from any ATM!
While you are on the Nile Cruise, you don’t need to tip every one separately, like waiters or housekeeping men.

The Average tipping for the Nile Cruise man is about 5$ per person per night.

There are two categories in our section of the Nile cruises; five stars Ultra Deluxe and 5 stars slandered both they take 4 nights from Luxor To Aswan which take one night longer than when they starting opposite direction (Aswan/Luxor 3 nights).
They are two temples. The first one is the Great Temple of Ramesses the great and the small one was built for his wife the beautiful Nefertari. This site has extraordinary phenomena as the ancient architects positioned the temple so that sunlight reached the sanctuary of the great temple on February 22, the day of his ascending the throne and the day of his birthday, October 22. On these two dates, the sun rises early morning and illuminates the temple 60 meters cut inside the mountain, and three of the four statues in the sanctuary. The first three statues are of king Ramses II, Ra (sun god), and Amun (king of all gods). The two temples were submerged by the water of Nasser Lake until last century. Then, UNESCO put extra efforts to rescue the temples and relocate them in this present site
