Egypt can be overwhelming, especially if you’re travelling with kids, but the guidance of your local leader and a well-planned, balanced itinerary make for an anxiety-free adventure.
There is a fair amount of walking involved in exploring the pyramids and it can get very hot in the summer. Be sure your family has appropriate clothing, sun protection and plenty of water to drink.
Evenings can get quite cool, so it's best to bring warm clothes too. Wearing layers is the best way to deal with the disparity in day and night temperatures.
