Security for visitors to Egypt

Description of a set of tourists visiting Egypt and their impressions of the security as they travelled around: "If you're a first-time vacationer to Egypt who is concerned about fast-breaking developments in the strife-torn Middle East, odds are that you may have asked yourself two crucial questions before departure: 'Should I go?' 'What kind of security does Egypt have for tourists?'
An unofficial on-site survey I took recently among Grand Circle Travel group members on an escorted tour revealed that all were asking those questions. Yet, 109 decided to take their chances and make the trip, while 20 others who were signed up backed out."
See the rest of the article for the opinions of the tourists in the survey.
