Is it safe to travel to Hurghada ???

I am thinking of booking a holiday to Hurghada in October, my holiday party will consist of myself and my wife and my 20 month old daughter. Myself and my wife are very worried about the unrest and the protests etc as we will have our daughter with us and this is her first holiday abroad.

Has anyone visited Hurgharda recently and witnessed any unrest / protests / violence of any description ?

Hope so one can help..

If you check the reviews and the forums of any one who has been recently to Egypt, you will find that the reviews and the feedback are completely different than the media

Could you check those links please?

Have you booked travel insurance? Can you suggest any?

I have an annual worldwide travel policy. Makes sense for me as I travel quite frequently, not just to Egypt!

No, it is Sharm which is on the Sinai Peninsula. Hurghada is a long way from Cairo though.

I went in 2012, the hotel was so nice and people are so friendly. However on 2nd night we was there we heard chanting outside our hotel and there was some sort of protest going on. I felt really scared then and just wanted to go home. I do feel sorry for the Egyptians cause they seem really nice people but I wouldn't return

Hurghada, throughout all 3 revolutions, have not experienced any troubles at all connected with the political situations. Yes, there have been about 3 demonstrations, but each time, tourists were involved, and they were more like street parties. Anyone telling you any different, are politically motivated.
