Is Egypt a good choice for a family holiday?

When you think of family holidays, Egypt will probably not be the first place that comes to mind but I urge you not to dismiss it until you have done your research. Egypt unfortunately has had a few issues recently with crime and in the past terrorism that has made many people stay well away, but under all of this is a country that has a wealth of history and places waiting to be discovered. Recently the Uk has started to fly to move and more destinations within Egypt. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai and against all but essential travel to the Governorate of South Sinai, except the area within the Sharm el Sheikh perimeter barrier and the area west of the Nile Valley and Nile Delta regions, excluding the coastal areas between the Nile Delta and Marsa Matruh. Egypt can offer the best of both worlds, trips to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids, a tour of the Valley of the Kings or a beautiful 5 star resort where you can enjoy the finest in food and accommodation.
