We have lived here 6 years and for the most part, the people are friendly, helpful and mean it. Yes there will be some who see $ when they see you just don't be rude while being firm in not just giving away your money or personal info. There is far more to see and do then appears on the surface. There is a night life, great cafes, restaurants, clubs along the beaches, just ask expat foreigners when you spot them, Egyptians who speak great Eng. You won't be disappointed. Respect the culture, over look some things and be polite you will have a very memorable visit.
