I am sitting in the Marriott Cairo now. We left May 7, our tour did Cairo, Alexandria ,and we just came back from the river tour of Aswan to Luxor. We took almost all of the optional tours, and you could not be safer. The people here are great, there are no crowds. My wife and I are going to Jordan with 20+ of newest friends.
The guides were simply amazing - we were blessed. Sherif and the other group's leader Fawzi, are both wonderful people. With all of their knowledge, they made trip interesting and they explained what was going on in the country.
The people were very friendly, we were very safe. If you have any questions, feel free to ask - I will answer next time I connect.
