At the pyramids, smaller crowds

By Jim Ribble, CNN

(CNN) – Crowds have thinned around Egypt's tourist attractions since last year's uprising. CNN's Jim Ribble talks with Egyptian-American Ahmed Fattouh, an investment banker, about tourism and the economy in Egypt today.

"All the sights are pretty empty, you can get first class service," Fattouh says. [1:29]

"This is not civil war. The most difficult part of all of this has been for those involved in tourism in downtown Cairo, near Tarhir Square." [2:29]
