I am starting to research tour opportunities in Cairo for June. In looking at a number of posst on TA as well as tour company websites there are references to tours being accompanied by security vehicles. Can anyone tell me the reason for this need? Is it about being stopped and robbed or is it a terrorism threat or is it something else altogther? Is there a particular area(s) that this escort is perceived to be neccessary? I am planning a 2 day private car trip starting in the port in Alexandria and ending at he Cairo port.
