Discover Egypt is amongst the operators intending to re-launch their Egyptian Nile Cruises later this month following an easing of the political unrest that has taking it’s toll on the country.
The Foreign Office had previously advised against all ‘non-essential’ travel to the country, and whilst this is applicable to Cairo, Alexandria and Suez, it is now relaxing it’s advice for those intending to travel to Luxor following the resignation of President Hosni Mubarack.
Luxor has long been an important cornerstone of Egypt’s tourism industry due to the city’s close proximity to the Nile for river cruises and the number of hotel resorts in the area.
Discover Egypt is renowned for their luxury Nile cruises and package holidays to Egypt and their website currently states that “All holidays are currently scheduled to operate as planned. Holidays that include Cairo are being reviewed on a regular basis.”
Philip Breckner, who is Commercial Director for Discover Egypt commented “From the start of the unrest we have been in constant contact with our ground handlers and partners in Egypt. We have received confirmation that hotels, Nile cruise boats and excursions are all ready to receive visitors.
Those who are intending to travel to Luxor within the next month are advised to stay in contact with their tour operator or travel agent should the situation change.
