Hi, we are travelling out to Sharm next week. How are things in Cairo now? is it safe to book a day tour to Cairo for the family? Thanks

Hi Charile, Things in Cairo are largely back to normal now, except a few people campaigning to ensure there is a peaceful transfer of power. We are very pleased to say that all the riots have finished and there is a good atmosphere in Cairo again. On the advice of the UK government and tourism board we are running trips to Cairo, Luxor and all other excursions again so yes you will be completely safe. Although is have no reason to suspect there will be anything other than peace in Cairo again now, IF anything did flare up again you can rest assured that you will receive a full and no-quibble refund. Thanks
