simple tour, artifacts of ancient Egypt, great pyramids, Islamic extremists, ruins

In 2000, 5.1 million tourists visited Egypt, providing $4.3 billion in revenues. The majority of visitors make a simple tour that includes Cairo, the great pyramids nearby, and the sites of other ruins and artifacts of ancient Egypt up the Nile. In the late 1980s and the 1990s many tourists visited Egypt's Red Sea resorts to take advantage of the warm winter weather. In 1992 attacks on foreigners by Islamic extremists scared off most tourists, but the industry soon recovered. The tourism industry is made up entirely of privately owned businesses.
