Word of advice, if you are the type of person that has travelled on your own, get a tour guide for the very touristy stuff and then hire a taxi for doing things that you have read on books as being super recommended. We found a taxi guy at the hotel who was a history teacher and could tell us so much about everything. He was an Egyptian Muslim and gave us a completely ...
