    How was it? Especially given the political situation..

    I’m going on 6th of July 2013. Excited but a bit nervous being a young woman -going alone.

    Any advise would be much appreciated.

    It was wonderful!
    A little concerning at times, if people ask for a photo with you it’s best to say no and walk away with the group, another girl and I made the mistake of saying yes and were quickly overwhelmed with people.
    Other then that the guide, Sherif, is amazing if you listen to everything he says you’ll be perfectly fine.
    Contiki picks you up from the airport and then escorts you everywhere from there.
    Enjoy the trip and make some amazing friends!

    I want to leave on Feb 14, 2013 but its not a guarenteed departure date. I’m nervous to book a flight, especially it’s non fundable. But I find a great dealing flight and I want to book both so badly!
