Last week, we were ecstatic when we learned that our sister company, Nineteen84 Management, collaborated with Big Billboard and Shady Beshr to bring some of the biggest names on social media in the world to Egypt!
This collaboration included everyone’s favorite Hawaiian boy Jay Alvarrez, YouTube sensation and Russian prank master Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, Egypt’s very own Sherif Fayed, Italian travel blogger Mario Botta, visuals master Aytan Lachish and the only Egyptian-base jumper in the world Shady Beshr.
The boys spent a week going around Egypt trying to make the most out of it in such a short amount of time. Here are some tips from them on how to travel Egypt.
If you want to experience Cairo at its best, you definitely need to stay at The Nile Ritz-Carlton. The 5-star luxury hotel provides you with a Nile or Egyptian Museum view from every room, multiple dining venues, pool, spa and so much more. That’s why all the celebrities and big names always choose The Ritz. Just ask Will Smith!
Of course, when you think Egypt you automatically think Pyramids, and that’s what the Mena House hotel’s Montgomery suite does best; a big lunch with an extra side of Pyramid view.
The legendary suite features some of the masterpieces at Mena House; from the stunning door inlaid with mother of pearl, a spacious living room furnished with antique furniture from the Harem of Hassan Sharawy’s palace and a large terrace, where kings, queens and other celebrities enjoyed the breathtaking views of the Pyramids. Also stargazing at night by the Pyramids is definitely a priceless experience.
Egypt is blessed with a magnificent location that has two of the most iconic coasts in the world; the Mediterranean and the Red Sea.
One of the coolest and most luxurious cities on the Red Sea is El Gouna. The city has everything; from the fancy hotels to the stunning beaches, and there are countless activities and events that are always happening all year long including kitesurfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, diving, motor cross, and more.
More than 90% of Egypt consists of desert areas, and one of the oldest and most iconic of these areas is definitely Fayoum.

We can never thank Ski Egypt and Mall of Egypt enough for bringing us snow in the middle of the desert. Egypt’s newest craze, Ski Egypt is the first and only ski slope and snow park in Africa with a variety of activities from extreme sports to beginner lessons, to simply relaxing in a snow-filled environment with friends, this is the ultimate venue in Egypt.
It’s no secret that Egyptian civilization is one of the oldest in the world, which is why it makes sense that Egypt is also one of the biggest cultural hubs to ever exist.
A visit to Luxor and Aswan is a must where you can walk through history and discover all of the Pharaonic temples and museums. Hilton Luxor is definitely the place to stay to escape to the banks of the Nile. Just 10 minutes from Luxor’s town center, the stylish resort is the ideal base for exploring the region’s historical attractions.
Egypt has so much to see and so much to offer, and as much as we recommend these activities to do and these cities to visit, we also recommend that you don’t limit yourself to this and explore Egypt.
