Arthur Frommer: Egyptian tourism operators are gearing up

Although the formal warnings of the U.S. State Department remain in effect, advising you that the situation in Egypt is still too unsettled to make tourism entirely safe, most tour operators to Egypt are gearing up for an imminent restart of their programs. I recently spoke by phone with Elie Sidawi, chairman of Sunny-land Tours (www. sunnylandtours.com), which undoubtedly operates the most extensive list of trips to Egypt. He told me emphatically, and a bit triumphantly, that he will restart his key tours to Cairo and Upper Egypt this month, and is cutting the price in half to assure that every seat on his flights will be full.
