Insight Vacations’ new Egyptian tours, which debut in 2015, but are already available for booking, will explore Egypt’s most iconic and fascinating sights.
Insight Vacations’ president, Phil Cappelli, says they kept a close eye on the political and social situation happening in Egypt; and is confident guests will enjoy this destination with the added safety and security of traveling with a group, and a highly experienced local tour director. “We have a long-standing history with Egypt and we are excited to continue this tradition,” says Cappelli. “We have made this decision after extensive consultation with our teams on the ground, and we will continue to maintain constant dialogue with our ground handlers. And, as always, our guests will enjoy the same quality signature experiences, signature dining, and signature hotels that they have come to expect from Insight Vacations.”
There are now four itineraries. The first departs on Jan. 8, 2015 with Insight Vacations’ global CEO, John Boulding. The 9-day Wonders of Egypt tour explores Egypt’s culture and history, including the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx crouching at the foot of Chephren’s Causeway. Travelers will also take a 5-day cruise down the Nile. Other itineraries are the 12-day Splendors of Egypt tour, featuring an 8-day Nile cruise; the 11-day Jewels of the Nile, Lake Nasser & Abu Simbel tour, which sails travelers on Lake Nasser and along the Nile; and the 12-day Egypt & Jordan itinerary that combines Wonders of Egypt and the Jordan Experience tours.
