  1. I am thinking about Egypt in Nov 2017, you made some interesting comments and I really appreciate your candid approach.
    Do you think there has been any improvement since you were there. I was thinking about a cruise down the Nile and only spend 1 to 2 days in Cario.Just wanted to see the sites.

    You started to make comments about the Cruises, but did not finish?
    Thanks

    • Sorry about not finishing. Life has been coming at me very fast since I made this video and I didn’t have time to make more. Basically, the river cruises are OK, but not always reliable and they take a long time. You can take a taxi in 1 day between Luxor and Aswan and see the same things as 90% of the river cruises. When I was there, I didn’t notice many cruises that actually left from Cairo, so I can’t speak about that.

      As for safety, that changes day-by-day, but, I would guess that, as a tourist, it’s pretty much the same. You will most likely never have an issue, but you will, depending where you go, see some things that remind you that you “aren’t in Kansas anymore.”

      My take on Egypt is that you should go if you aren’t a first-time traveler and if you have a good sense of street-smarts and situational awareness.

      I’m glad you like my candid approach! I get a lot of grief for it, but I think people should know the reality and not just what’s on a brochure.
