Independent Travel is Egypt - Safe???

I am going to be in Egypt around new years, and I would like any information about others experiences - especially as to whether or not they felt safe, specifically in and on the way to Luxor. Thank you!

I've been to Egypt twice as an independent traveler, in 1994 and 1998. Both times were not long after an act of terrorism was committed. I find travel in Egypt to be safe. I have heard that it is not safe to travel by car between Cairo and Luxor. I traveled that route by train and arrived unscathed- no worries. Egypt is not to be missed! The terrorist acts are isolated incidents meant, at least in part, to upset the Egyptian economy which is dependent on tourism. The typical Egyptian is very friendly and hospitable, and you can walk the streets of Cairo anytime without worry.
