Now Egypt doesn't get many tourists. So the good news are that Pyramids of Giza (Cairo) have no many tourists as well.

Unlike the better times, it is hard to find bus tours to Giza. So the best is to hire a taxi (for example Uber) and next walk everywhere on you own.

As it is hard to walk for a long time under the Egyptian sun, so it is worth to hire a donkey wagon for 150 Egyptian pound. Don't agree with "big circle", as there's nothing interesting, but the local will claim for higher rate when the ride is over.

Egypt oases are not very interesting in comparison with the superb White Desert! Last years overnight camping is not permitted. But many guides still may arrange you a night in the tent. Highly recommend!

What are the most interesting oases in Egypt? Any hints, advices?

Is it safe now in Egypt? I'm planning to visit Hurghada, connecting flight to Cairo by Turkish airlines.
