Egypt has so much to offer, from the Great Pyramids of Giza, museums and bazaars, to the flowing Nile River and beautiful coasts and beaches. The sun shines year-round and the locals are some of the friendliest people I have ever encountered.

I’m frequently asked is it safe to go to Egypt. In this day and age, no one can say that any country in the world is 100% safe, and the same can be said about Egypt. However, I believe that the risk of harm to a visitor is extremely low. I personally do not think twice about visiting any of the tourist sites and frequently do so. The magic never dies and I’m always going back for more.

Egypt’s economy relies heavily on tourism. The Egyptian government and security forces recognize this and are keen to do everything in their power to maintain the well-being of tourists and residents alike. Security at airports and tourist sites has been significantly heightened to ensure your safety.

Once in Egypt, you will find a warmth in the culture and people that will have you feeling at home. Locals are always happy to help and the streets are safe for a stroll at all times of the day. They say New York never sleeps, but you should see Cairo!

With Inside Egypt, rest assured that your safety and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. So come on over, enjoy the adventure and make the most of this beautiful country on your trip to Egypt.
