Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold Discuss The Rise In Egypt

November 27, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

With a strong legacy in Egypt that spans over 20 years, it’s little wonder why Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold are thrilled to see this exceptional destination make its much anticipated come-back with travellers.

Ulla Hefel Böhler, CEO for Insight Vacations & Luxury Gold, was in Egypt recently with her family and speaks highly of the experience: “I had travelled to Egypt before and loved the country then and all it had to offer – we were welcomed back with open arms, felt perfectly comfortable and at ease at all times, yet there were no crowds. Apart from experiencing the incredible sights with our Egyptologist, it was also the personal touches which made a huge difference: visiting a local family home and learning more about the local traditions and their way of life, being greeted by the smiling crew on the River Tosca with cold drinks and towels when returning from sightseeing and of course the food, I savoured the best Falafel (seriously) I have ever eaten.”

The award-winning global leader in premium escorted journeys, stands proud of its continued support and presence in Egypt over the years with plans to ramp up its program for 2020. Lorraine Sharp, Managing Director, commented: “The return in interest to the Middle East and our commitment to supporting our long-term Egyptian partners, have overwhelmingly been reflected in the number of passenger bookings which have risen by 145% from 2017. Luxury Gold in fact, has already sold out of its 7-day Elegance of Egypt Summer 2019 trip.”

Although the pyramids have come to symbolise this exotic destination, they’re just a small portion of what this timeless land has to offer. A treasure house of history and culture waiting to be explored, now is the perfect time to visit and take advantage of the magical Insight Experiences which include a qualified Egyptologist and an experienced Traveling Concierge to guide you:
