Egypt in 2014

Hi, I haven't seen a trip report yet for ABD in Egypt so am hoping it is a great trip - looks like it from the itinerary so I am thinking of booking the February 2014-

I think only one trip to Egypt has run since ABD announced the trip almost 2 years ago

I think that is right--and no trip reports from that as I recall! We are still booked for Dec 2013, and keeping our fingers crossed.

We were planning on doing this trip. When we called ABD a few days after thanksgiving they said they are in talks of pulling out of Egypt completely. I hope that doesn't happen though as I really want to see Egypt!

Egyptian touring

Don't give up on Egypt! It's a fascinating place to tour. My view was through the Egyptian military (and that is a whole other conversation), but the history there is mind boggling.

When you DO go, see the Cairo museum (hall of Pharaohs, especially), Alexandria is awesome, and when you go to the pyramids, be sure to negotiate your transportation to the pyramids proper by camel ROUNDTRIP! You don't want to get all the way out there to find it is one-way ... And it WILL be.

Also, the high-pressure sales are much less tiresome if they think you're Australian! I'm from Maryland, but they didn't know the difference when I told them I was an Aussie ... they left me for more lucrative American targets!

They are offering less dates now. I also hope they don't pull out completely as we booked this adventure twice with ABD and canceled twice as well.

We have to wait until August to see what we are doing next year. If our Brazil plans don't work out, we are considering the Egypt March 2014 ABD, if still available.

Fingers crossed for you!!

We just booked for the March 2014 trip! So far it's just my family of 4, so hopefully a few others sign up so they don't cancel. (But not too many - I like the idea of a small group trip )

I was just on the ABD website. The March 2014 departure is no longer listed. Did they cancel already? Or no more reservations? Actually, there are no departures until Oct 2014.

They actually took it off the day you looked. We got a call a day or so later offering to let us move to the 2014 series without additional charge so we are now booked for Christmas of 2014 but they still cautioned us due to the political situation in Egypt that those dates are not guaranteed either. Crossing our fingers and debating if we should try for China instead.

Oh, my! I'll keep my fingers & toes crossed for you that things settle down in Egypt by then. We had a father & son on our Greek Odyssey ABD who had switched because their 2nd attempt at taking the Egypt trip had been cancelled. It's so sad that things are so bad there.

It is terrible. I, too, hope things change, sooner rather than later.

I have a question about all these Egypt cancellations. My DBF has FINALLY given me the ok to book an ABD. Egypt is the one I am after. Because of the trips that have been cancelled, we decided to choose one of the latest dates (March 2015), however, I know myself, and I know I would be terribly disappointed if it were to be cancelled. Which is the reason I have yet to call ABD and book. My question is, I see that in September 2012, JackzGirl posted that her December 2012 trip was cancelled. Why were the trips AFTER the October trip cancelled, but not the October trip? Why not cancel the earliest trips? I understand safety being ABDs first concern, but, if they were that concerned with safety, why did October 2012 get to go?
