Situation in Egypt

Dear TB's, I am writing an article for a travel website on situation in Egypt in regards to travels, safety etc. Is there anyone here who has been to Egypt recently or is there now? I would love to ask a few questions. Thanks.

My former partner has just got back from Egypt. She said her Nile Cruise for a week proceeded normally but when they went to Hurghada for the second week, they were strongly advised to just stay in the grounds of the resort. Other than that, she said they were not affected by the situation.

Re: Situation in Egypt

Life is completley normal. I have been living in Egypt since May 2010.

Stayed during the revolution and even then I never felt under threat.

Re: Situation in Egypt

I have just heard from a friend in Cairo that everything is OK. but sometimes you may see some things. I think there is no problem with your trip to Egypt. Enjoy your time in Pyramids and Sphinx.

Re: Situation in Egypt

I'm glad to read everything seems to be OK now.  We are visiting Cairo in June for 3 days, and resisted advice from friends to cancel. The original Hotel we were booked into (since October last year) has cancelled all bookings, so we have been upgraded to a 5 star hotel with breakfast & lunch thrown in.   I'm really looking forward to it.
