I am an American planning to travel to Egypt in late May. Can anyone give me an idea of the feelings towards Americans? I am going there with a tour company.

well as egyptian i cant reply this question
you can go to and ask about if Egypt is safe or not
i just can talk about our hospitality and from here i say if you need any help in your tour or anything related while you are in Egypt .,i will be glad to serve you and tell you the most important places to go
remember we like toursits but they think that we always need money for this help.
but we DONT my advice is to take care of mad taxis :)
wish you a great tour while i am sure about.
hope that helps

You shouldn't have any trouble in egypt. I found the people to be very helpful and friendly. I was travelling with Imaginative Traveller ( on an overland tour of egypt with a bunch of nationalities - british, american, ozzie's, kiwi's, sweds, janpanese - and none of use had any trouble. I'm british by the way.

Should you have any bother, there are always tourist police about to help
