In the last three years On The Go Tours, an award-winning tour operator specialising in locally led group tours and tailor-made holidays to over 60 worldwide destinations, has experienced an increase in travellers booking Egypt tours by 90% and predicts that this trend will continue to snowball in 2017.
Although the country has experienced volatility in recent years with inbound tourism as a major casualty, travellers are growing more adventurous and are putting their trust in operators with an impeccable safety record and long history in the country, so if political stability remains the tourism industry is likely to take a big step on the road to recovery in 2017.
On The Go Tours has always been synonymous with travel to Egypt as this is where the company was conceived and is home to some of On The Go Tours most exceptional guides and itineraries, with additional journeys added over the last few years to meet growing demand.
Since starting here 18 years ago On The Go Tours has cultivated an immense network of local operators, accommodation providers and local guides making the brand a preferred and trusted choice for consumers. Consumer trust is particularly evident in the Australian market as Egypt is On The Go Tours’ third best seller in this market, and the numbers are showing a healthy growth rate indicating that Egypt might be on the verge of making a comeback.
However, with a way to go before tourism is back in full force for those that go an incredibly warm welcome awaits and major attractions are free from crowds giving travellers an authentic experience.
