I am going to guess that tourism is down enough that you will have many of the temples to yourself.

I don't think you will be allowed to go off on your own. .........

With all that is happening now and an overall desire to avoid bad PR in the West, I will be very surprised if you are allowed to wander on your own.
Thanks.
Yes, I know I have to be careful, as women, also Egyptian, are harassed in Ca´ro. I will take care when touring the bazaars.
Tourism is down now, but I wanted to go for a long time and was a bit shocked when the archeological museum in Ca´ro was looted last year, without my having seen it previously.

Well, I will be fine, I think. I survived Central Asia this year, with the many infamous border crossings and the Torugart pass. http://www.advantour.com/kyrgyzstan/torugart-pass.htm
