We are often asked “Is it safe to come to Egypt?” We can tell you, “Yes, of course, you will be safe and comfortable exploring Egypt with us”, but then you may think “They would say that, they are a travel company and that is their home territory.” So we are delighted when one of the most respected travel reporters says the same.
Peter Greenberg visits Egypt several times a year and says:
“You find the Egyptians to be the most hospitable people in the world. I like to say that if you ask an Egyptian the time of day, you’ll never find out what time of day it is because he’s too busy inviting you to his home for dinner.
Having said that, visual images are very powerful. You’ve seen what the scene is like outside the U.S. Embassy. It’s a powerful image. But you’re always going to have a faction of people in front of Tahrir Square–it might be 300 or it might be 600, but you must remember how many millions of people who live in Egypt? And how many Americans have been killed in Egypt in the last 10 years? How many Americans were killed during the riots that ensued in the overthrow of Mubarak?
It’s zero. Part of being a good world travelers knowing where not to go or where not to go when. And if you take a look at the real statistics of danger, I’d be more concerned about going to Camden, New Jersey than Cairo, Egypt right now.”
