Egypt safe travel

Jump to last reply

hi. Fodor Folks have helped me over the years with planning my family trips to Greece, Rome and Spain. Now for Egypt--my husband's life long dream. Leaving Boston and traveling to Egypt, we are just now looking at flights and hope to go the end of Feb 2015 early March. My hubby and I are early 60 and my son is a early 20's. My thought is that my boys would probably have a safer, better trip if they traveled on their own without me, and should go on their own.
--Hotel room for 2 vs 3 (harder in Egypt to sneak a 3rd person into a room that only allows 2 like Spain)
--Are there "male only" entrance to some sites or is it easier to maneuver about for 2 guys vs. 2 guys and a lady.
I have been reading some of the earlier forums with interest. My husband was thinking of a delayed layover and spending the extra on plane fare for an day in Istanbul either going to or returning rom Egypt any thoughts or suggestions?
