Have a river trip planned in April that includes several days in Cairo.  I sincerely feel it is not safe to be there now.  When will GCT determine the safety of travel to the area and how will we be advised of such decision?  Will GCT refund monies based on secutity isssues?  Is that covered in the insurance?  Will the trip if scheduled be able to deliver the scheduled trips involved in the agend?  If not,. then what?  We are many time travelers with GCT and feel confident they will see to our welfare, but need a little reassurance now.

I hope you are not expecting a response from GCT in the Traveler Discussions as the discussion board is not intended to be used for commnications between GCT and its customers.  This is from the Egypt Update on the home page: "If you are reserved on one of our Egypt trips and have any further concerns, you can call our World Events Hotline at 1-800-866-6568 Monday–Friday 8am to 8:30pm; Saturday–Sunday 9am to 7pm (ET)."

There are several posts about this trip in the Destination section; one in Africa and the other Middle East.  As you probably know they have canceled all trips thru February.  We are scheduled for 3/5 and are very uncomfortable about the situation.  Last time I called them, they suggested just to wait till it gets closer to departure time to discuss options.
