Sorry for the delay, I only just saw this question. I found Egypt safe, I think dressing usual but a little conservative is respectful to the culture. I traveled with my friend and our husbands so can’t comment on women traveling alone in Egypt- I have not had that experience. I had pre arranged tours and transport- very convenient, didn’t use the taxis there. Interesting country and I found everyone welcoming. Booking tours and transport ahead of time ensures you won’t be ‘stuck’ and won’t miss out on all the amazing sights.
