    Default Anyone ever been to Egypt?

    Or have family there? We are looking to go either in March or May and I'd love to get some feedback.

    Omg fun! I've never been there, but that's definitely on my list of places to visit.

    Are you going there for a vacation? Tourism stuff?

    We're going for an educational trip. My daughter is in 1st grade right now and they are learning about Egypt this year. It's a really outstanding curriculum because it parallels the Bible and history together. My son, who is in 3rd grade, is now diving into the Middle Ages and through the Renaissance age. We have figured it that at the end of each year of the youngest child, we will travel to that country. So this year is Egypt, next year is Greece and Italy. The year after that will be France and England/Scotland. And so on...
    So basically I'm looking for someone who has been there and can recommend a good tour group to go through. Some of the trips will be on our own, but not Egypt. I want this one well scripted for safety reasons.

    How fantastic! I've never been there, always wanted to go there some day. My grandmother went on a tour there. I think she had fun :)

    My boyfriend's sister just came back from Egypt and said that they have the security(police?) people go ahead of the tour groups and shut the city down to let the tourists in or else the people will try to rob them! She came back with some fabulous gifts and she said she had a terrific time, so I'll try to ask her who she went with.

    I have a lot of family and friends that have visited Egypt. I know a popular resort for tourists and divers is Sharm El Sheikh. My family all visited Luxor/Valley of the Kings. I have heard that you have to be careful, obviously their lifestyle and customs are very different to ours, and basically have to respect that and most definately cover up. I don't know anyone that has been and not liked it, I think if you're going for the educational aspect, jus do a lot of reading up about it and you'll be fine. I'm from the UK so could only reccommend UK travel companies so am no help in that respect! Sorry! I'm sure you'll have a fab time. I'd love to go!

    If there is a tour company that family or friends have used, by all means please let me know. As airfare is separate anyway, I don't think it will matter if the company is UK or USA based. Kwim?
    And we definitely want to go on a "tour guided" trip. This is not one of those that we want to meander around and see things for ourselves. Too dangerous.

    I shall let you know, I'd ask my Aunty's but they just jetted off to Sri Lanka today so I cant ask them for a couple weeks. I know that they've definately been to the pyramids etc, but I'm unsure if they've been to Sharm. I believe they usually book their hols with the tour company Kuoni, maybe that would be of some use. Can you not book guided tours or trips from the likes of Expedia or Ebookers? I know that there are some sites that specialise in tours and the likes, I googled it and one company called Voyages Jules Verne had a selection!

    Wow Maevey sounds like great fun and its good for the kids education too, I'm not much help cos I've never been or know anyone who has been, but my MIL used to be a travel agent, maybe I can ask her if she knows something about the tours, etc....

    I've started doing some serious research on the tours and the trip with kids in general and I think I found the company I want to use. I just emailed them with my thoughts and what I wanted out of the trip and am waiting on a response.
