Previous ‘don’t travel’ advice lifted by a number of Western governments.

Although most Western governments still advise against travel to parts of the Sinai the resort areas around Sharm el Sheik, Luxor and the Nile Valley and Cairo are now deemed safe for travel provided normal precautions are taken. Avoid public demonstrations and government/military buildings and installations. Travelling with a native guide who intimately knows the area will add an additional element of safety to your visit.
