Is it safe? some people planning to visit Egypt ask us. Don’t just take our word for it, hear what others have to say….

Many tourists are returning, including a couple from Texas, USA, who we met recently. They first visited Egypt during the early days of the Revolution last year, and are back for their second visit because they felt safe and welcomed throughout their previous stay.
