My family and I spent two weeks in Egypt in December 2010. Most of the time was spent along the Nile river around Luxor, but we did spend several days in Cairo.
I recently made a photo book featuring some of the highlights from our trip. This 76-page book should give you a good indication as to what it was like to visit Egypt as a tourist just one month prior to its political uprising.
