Egypt is back in business!
It's always been one of our most popular destinations and you could once again be exploring Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and the Red Sea region next year.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice has recently changed which allows us to safely return to Cairo and the southern region of Egypt. However, we will now be flying between Cairo and Aswan, rather than catching the train, to ensure we adhere to all FCO guidelines.
Ashley Toft, Explore Managing Director and regular traveller on our holidays says “From exploring the famous Pyramids and riding camels through the desert to snorkelling in the Red Sea, visiting ancient temples and cruising down the Nile in a felucca, there is so much to enjoy in Egypt. With a short flight time from the UK, as well as excellent year-round weather, it makes for an incredible holiday destination. We’re delighted to be able to take customers back again next year.”
2014 will be the perfect time to go as the sites are expected to be quiet, plus the friendly Egyptians can't wait to welcome you back!
