Travel to Egypt has been a risky situation in recent years, so check for travel advisories before making a commitment to travel. When the country is open to tourism, it has been traditional for tourist buses to travel in large groups that have spare buses and an armed escort. This applies to cruise ships that disembark passengers from Alexandria or Port Said to Cairo, as well as for trips that leave Cairo for Luxor
