Is Egypt safe to go to Egypt especially after the political unrest that took place in 2011?
In spite of the size and the population density of the cities, Egypt is generally considered one of the safest destinations in the Middle East for travelers, Egypt having tourists visiting the country as early as the Roman time, the Egyptians are historically known for their kindness and warmth. Egyptians are friendly towards tourists because they know how important tourism is for the national economy of Egypt.
After the last presidential elections, especially with the support that the new Egyptian president SISI has showed towards tourism, with the conditions getting more stable in Egypt
Egypt now is as secure as it has always been for ages.
This is why many tourists state that they feel secure in Egypt even more than their homelands.

The country has many touristic locations like hotels, resorts, bars, pubs, and casinos where tourists in general and women in particular may feel free to dress and behave the way they like there is no dress code in Egypt for women Like KSA or other countries in the Gulf also solo woman can travel in Egypt by her own or joining small group tour in Egypt we always support women to travel to Egypt anytime of the year.

The current Egyptian situation is as follows:
Tour visiting Cairo
Cairo is the capital of Egypt and all major events happened in Cairo over the last few years the city became
as normal and there is no impact on the tours in cairo.
Tours including overnight trains between Cairo and Luxor or Aswan: At the present time
The Egyptian Authorities are not permitting operators like us to put foreign tourists onto the overnight ‘sitting trains’
That many of our tours used to feature. The ‘sleeper train’ is fine to use though, and we have changed all our tours
that used to use the ‘sitting train’ to use this sleeper train. We do offer upgrades to domestic flights in place of this
train journey if preferred we always do our best to make for you the best trip in Egypt.
Nile Cruises: During the quiet summer months some Nile cruise boats stop operating.
Cruise may not be available. during this period we will use alternate cruises keeping as close as possible to the same
Standard of cruise boat as booked, often providing free upgrades to all-suite boats such as the Sonesta cruise.
During other periods, cruise boat operators often combine travelers originally booked onto several different boats
onto one. This makes it hard to guarantee cruise boat names on our Egypt tours.
though the same standard of boat or higher is always maintained if there are changes.
Our Travel policies: Safety is our main responsibility
Our travelers’ safety is absolutely our top priority, and we will re-arrange itineraries, cancel sections of a tour
or cancel an entire booking if we feel that we cannot run your tour safely.

they gained a lot of experience in both analyzing the situation on the ground and reacting to developments
and making adjustments to itineraries. we will continue to act on and build on this experience
To make the best of Egypt tours and safe travel to our guests.
