Spirit Quest Tours Says Media Reports of Protests in Egypt Have Thinned Crowds at Tourist Sites this Week, Despite Calm Throughout Cairo   By PRWEB

Cairo, Egypt (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

U.S. news reports have been filled over the last few weeks with footage of angry protests in Egypt, but Halle Eavelyn and a group of intrepid travelers led by Spirit Quest Tours are in the midst of the supposed unrest and say they have yet to see it. According to recent video and a blog post from the ground, there is absolutely nothing to get in the way of tourists who are there to experience all the history, spirituality, and luxury that Egypt has to offer.

In video uploaded from Cairo to the Spirit Quest Tours blog, Eavelyn is seen enthusiastically broadcasting live from Tahrir Square, the site that has become synonymous with major protests against President Mohamed Morsi. A quiet street scene is behind her. No protests. No danger.

"There is some tent housing set-up, and there are a couple hundred people in the streets, but they are having peaceful conversations. Everything is very quiet where we are, which is a sharp contrast to what is being shown on television," Eavelyn says.
