  • I'm a daily reader of the Daily Beast web site, and yesterday came across this interesting account of its travel editor's tour of Egypt, a central feature of which was a five-day cruise down the Nile in a luxury dahabiya, a large, flat-bottomed wooden sailboat which makes stops in places other tours don't reach. Fascinating! https://www.thedailybeast.com/nour-el-nil-allows-you-to-escape-egyp...
    How to Escape Egypt’s Crowds on a Chic Nile Sailboat
    Riding aboard Nour el Nil is rented elegance, lounging about on a deck as temples, reed-covered banks, and the dunes of the Sahara float by.

  • My mother and sister went to Egypt ten years ago when Mubaruk was strongly in power but even then it was not a safe place to visit. They could not walk around Cairo without their guide. 

  • I was in Egypt in October 2012 when locals were still hopeful about Morsy. Cruising the Nile on the Sonesta Star Goddess was wonderful. We stayed in Cairo a few days to visit the pyramids, museum and other historic sites--and felt perfectly safe. Tourism was just bouncing back. I managed to get two articles published before the unrest began again. I feel so sorry for the locals who depend on tourism--and, like Ed, I fear for the historic treeasures if the radicals have their way.

  • 7 years ago I went to Egypt with my parents and brother... and almost got sold for some camels!

  • hi David

    let me tell you that the muslims said that they will prevent selling alcohol in public places and they will let the tourist to get his alcoholic drinks with him without any problems and as for the  bikinis and beaches they said they can not prevent any one of wearing the bikini but the most important thing is that the tourists who love Egypt because of it's attraction and beauty will not care about who is ruling and they will apply the rules because they are coming to experience Egypt and they know quite well that Egypt is not a place only for alcohol and bikini but Egypt is a place with a great value
