We are also going in December 2017 and I haven’t heard about civil unrest or protesting recently. My fingers are crossed! We had a trip planned for 2 weeks after the Arab Spring got going and had to cancel. Things seem ok as of now.

Not aware of any recent civil disturbance that would affect safety.

I'm off to Orlando in a couple of weeks

My wife is more worried about that than the recent 4 weeks in Luxor

Thanks Susan and everyone for your comments. I just wanted to get general opinion about the current situation because FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) guidelines sometimes scare us. However, I'm with you guys that current situation is fine to explore this ancient country. I inquired through some sources regarding a westward journey from Cairo to Siwawi which gives you a a true desert life experience but govt of Egypt has stopped that for sometime due to security reasons. I will check back again if it gets open up during that time.. Thanks again to everyone

Kumar, I think you might mean Siwa.

So, if I have this right, your listed home location Is Cairo but you nevertheless went “to Egypt...and traveled there 20 days” with a tour company that you’re constantly plugging on these forums. What a curious ‘coincidence’.
