Tour Packages to Egypt


The Egyptian Tourist Authority is happy to announce the resumption of tours to Egypt.

Last month two major US tour operators announced the resumption of their tours to Egypt. Globus & Cosmos resumed their programs to Egypt with three tour packages and Maupintour issued a press release announcing that the company will resume operating its Egypt tours starting March 1998. "The US State Department removed its warning to travelers in southern Egypt and our long-standing contacts in the country advise us that significant measures have been taken to make Egypt a destination where we can escort our passengers again," commented Maupintour's General Manager.

He further stated that the country's government and local tourism suppliers were doing their utmost to ensure an environment allowing tourists to experience the renowned attraction of that ancient country.
