re: Anyone traveled to Egypt
I went in 2011. Pyramids are probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. And I’ve seen lots of cool shite.

I’ll see if I can find some info for you baw

re: Anyone traveled to Egypt
I am looking to go next year. I've had this and Istanbul booked in the past and had to cancel both for obvious reasons. I really want to get out there and pick up some ancient piece of history for the start of my collection.

Any progress with planning your Egypt trip? I am considering tacking this onto the end of a Europe trip later this year.

Heard Adventures by Disney was setting one up. Probably will be expensive as hell, but I’ve heard they are the best.

re: Anyone traveled to Egypt
I went when I was a kid. I can't remember the tour company's name.

But I highly recommend a cruise on the Upper Nile. It was one of the neatest places I've been.

That being said, a friend of mine went last December and walked by a group of locals who started chanting "death to Americans" in English.

A friend of mine got a really cheap flight from the west coast and went back in February. He got a guided tour for the pyramids etc and then just walked around the area near his hotel and never felt unsafe. He isn't hardcore I am here for the local experience type person either.

At the same time, I can totally see the story your friend told you happening.

I realize this is an older post that got necro'd but hopefully this will help anyone looking for a safe way to travel in Egypt.

American Star Travel

These guys handle arrangements for the US military and can provide anything from a simple guided tour to full armed escort with former Egyptian special forces. They know the palms to grease and they do it very well.

re: Anyone traveled to Egypt
I’ve been before the overthrow of Mubarak and after. It’s a much more hostile place. In comparison to Pakistan, which seemed incredibly hostile to Americans, Egypt is on par.

That being said, I know the organized tours provide better insulation from all that (those don’t really exist in Pakistan). Try and get a British based tour, I hear good things.

I went by myself in November. Did everything I wanted to do and never felt unsafe.
