    Egypt has the most amazing cultural history anywhere. As my guide said, it’ not just the history of Egypt, but the history of humanity. Incredible. It is a must-visit. But..the culture is hard on most people. Having a great guide makes all the difference. I had many guides during my trip, and this was the best. THANKS!!
